A convicted felon was shot then arrested after using a gun to threaten two men at a Cape Coral, Florida roofing company, one of whom happened to be an armed concealed carry holder.

Kevin Bruzos, 29, had already used a firearm to threaten someone, Cape Coral police say. He then left and returned with the weapon to threaten the same person and another individual. The individual, a permitted concealed carry holder, aimed his weapon at Bruzos and ordered him to drop his gun. Instead of obeying, Bruzos aimed it at the concealed carry holder, “who in turn defended himself and shot Bruzos,” according to Fox4.

In addition to the bullet wound, Bruzos faces charges of possession of a weapon by a convicted felon and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. The man who shot Bruzos reportedly acted in self defense and will not be facing charges. (RELATED: Gunman Tries To Rob Kids, Families Outside A School — Runs Into Pistol-Packing Mother)
