Gun grabbers may consider the heroic actions of a “good guy with a gun” pure myth, but the legend was proven true yet again Wednesday in Arizona after a man with “jealousy issues” opened fire at an Amazon warehouse.

Much like corporate media’s recent uproar over Elon Musk’s temporary suspension of journalists while remaining mum on the details of the “Twitter Files,” stories that disprove the narrative often go overlooked. Such was the case Wednesday morning at an Amazon Flex Warehouse in Chandler, Arizona when 29-year-old Jacob Murphy arrived, allegedly with ill intent for a male co-worker of his girlfriend.
According to Chandler Police, Murphy had arrived at the rear employee parking lot around 9:30 a.m. and was looking to enter the building to confront an employee who worked there with his girlfriend when another employee intercepted the suspect.
Chandler Police Sgt. Jason McClimans detailed, “The victim contacted Murphy in the parking lot, feeling something was strange, and attempted to get Murphy to exit the property. This is when Murphy shot the victim numerous times.”
“The third male,” who was armed with his own firearm, “hearing and observing the shooting, used his gun and fired upon Murphy, protecting the victim,” the sergeant explained. “He did come to the aid of an individual who was shot by a suspect. So, in that case, I would say he is a good Samaritan.”
The victim had reportedly been transported to a nearby hospital and was expected to recover from his injuries.
Fellow employees at the Amazon Flex Warehouse, where contract workers pick up parcels for delivery, described their experiences as the incident unfolded to Fox 10.
Bryton Bobbitt told the outlet, “As soon as I saw employees running, I just put my van in drive and got out of here as quickly as I could.”
“I just heard popping,” an employee named Nick explained, “four or five pops, then went into a co-worker’s car and then took off, and then we parked for a minute, then we started hearing more shots.”
According to law enforcement officials, a total of 10 shots were fired and Murphy was said to have died from a combination of a gunshot wound from the Amazon employee and a self-inflicted gunshot wound.”
Amazon spokesman Richard Rocha opined on the incident with a statement that read, “We’re deeply saddened by this senseless act of violence in our parking lot. We’re working closely with law enforcement as they investigate and are focused on supporting our team during this difficult time.”
The police, who explained the case will get forwarded to the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office for review after completion of the investigation, went on to state that, “As previously released, the Chandler Police Department is not investigating the third male, who came to the victim’s aid, as a suspect.”
However, many went on to point out that Amazon has a no-gun policy and there is a high likelihood that as a reward for protecting his coworkers, the unnamed Samaritan will likely be terminated.
My thoughts exactly. It won’t matter that he saved a fellow employee.
