An Uber driver was wounded in a shooting Tuesday morning after a passerby fired as many as 15 shots into the car after seeing the driver and passenger “waving a gun around,” police say.
Dallas police said they were called to a shooting in the 100 block of South Brookside Drive at 12:47 a.m. and found the Uber driver’s vehicle riddled with 10 to 15 bullet holes in the front passenger door and window.
Investigators said a passenger in the vehicle had a handgun in a case that the driver asked to see.
The shooter — later identified as 33-year-old John Beaty — happened upon the car, spotted the weapon and then fired at the vehicle, striking the driver in the chest.
Beaty, who served in the Army from 2007 to 2010, told police he thought he’d witnessed someone committing a crime, according to a report by The Dallas Morning News.
When officers arrived, police said Beaty was administering first aid to the victim — a 24-year-old man. Beaty’s weapon was found disassembled on the hood of a nearby vehicle.
Authorities said the victim was transported to Baylor University Medical Center with injuries that were not life threatening. His condition is not known.
Police said they took Beaty — who may be suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder — into custody. He was transported to the Dallas County Jail and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Yes, not a trick. I am not joking. Jerry Falwell Jr praised President Trump’s first 100 days in office. He said that evangelicals had found their dream president.
This is a neat device. My daughter got it for her RV. It is an 1100 watt power bank.
Great for powering RVs, laptops, cell phones, tablets and camp sites.
I am a amateur radio operator, ham, and I would love to have one of these.

OK, I am a Democrat and hell I am left wing and happy to admit it. (Brave of me since I live in Texas.)
I have no problem having people call me a leftist.
Bill Nye is a hero to the left and hated with rage and passion by the right.
I think Bill Nye is a honest person and is correct about science but I think he is a piss poor spokesperson for the left and our causes. He comes across as prejudice and heavy-handed.
He comes across as authoritarian and harsh.
He has a new TV show on Netflix. The show is called “Bill Nye Saves the World.” I saw it on Netflix the other day.
I could only watch a little of the show. I could not stand it. It was not funny. It was not well done. Bill Nye came across as a joke. But he was not funny.
The important thing to me is that he does not make the left look good.
There is no one that is going to watch his show and change their position.
He is not a credit or a help to the left. The right can show him and repeat what he says and make us all look like a bunch of prejudice people promoting our agenda.
We should all run away from Bill Nye as fast as we can.
Michael Moore does not help us. He did at first but now he hurts are cause when he speaks. I think many Democrats agree with me now. I think Bill Nye is going to hurt our causes much worst than Michael Moore.
I saw a doctor the other day about my skin cancer. He told me about it and the options and asked what treatment I wanted. I like the doctor a great deal. I am glad my doctor recommend him.
May 17 (2017) I will go in and have the basal cell carcinoma removed.
I am going to have what is called “Mohs Surgery.”
Mohs surgery, developed in 1938 by a general surgeon, Frederic E. Mohs, is microscopically controlled surgery used to treat common types of skin cancer. During the surgery, after each removal of tissue and while the patient waits, the tissue is examined for cancer cells. That examination informs the decision for additional tissue removal. Mohs surgery is one of the many methods of obtaining complete margin control during removal of a skin cancer (CCPDMA – complete circumferential peripheral and deep margin assessment) using frozen sectionhistology.CCPDMA or Mohs surgery allows for the removal of a skin cancer with very narrow surgical margin and a high cure rate.
I do not plan to blog about the surgery as it happens or even take photos or video.
I suspect you will see me with a hat on from now on.
The gun bunny is a strange American to me. I just do not understand how a Republican man can get an erection over a Massive Ordnance Air Blast (MOAB). I guess, as a Democrat, I should not be sexist.
The Republican woman on Fox News seem to get wet panties over MOAB.
The Republicans say they love small government but they love big guns and bigger bombs. I just do not understand my gun bunny friends.
