BRUNSWICK, Ga. – A quick acting police officer in Brunswick stopped a teenager with a loaded gun from entering a high school basketball game Tuesday night.
Police arrested 19-year-old Ahmaud Marquez Avery (pictured below), who is not a student at Brunswick.
“The man ran through the parking lot.
He didn’t run. He was a jogger!
I tried to get him to stop as well. He would not stop for us,” said Glynn County Schools Chief of Police, Rod Ellis. “We ended up chasing him to the back of the school were other officers helped us apprehend him.”
Ellis said the .380 caliber semi-automatic handgun slipped out of the teen’s pants.
And from the Brunswick News in 2013:
At about 7:20 p.m. Tuesday, Glynn County Schools Resource Officer Jody Vicent noticed a man with a handgun tucked in the waistband of his pants attempting to enter the basketball game between Brunswick High School and Glynn Academy at the Brunswick High School gym.
The man, identified by Schools Police Chief Rod Ellis as 19-year-old Ahmaud Marquez Avery, ran when Vicent tried to stop him, said Ellis, who was on alert in his police vehicle in a parking lot because of a nearby chase involving Brunswick police.
Ellis said he drove alongside Avery with his gun pointed at him as Avery ran along a sidewalk in front of the school. After being ordered to stop several times, Ellis said Avery ran between buildings to the back of the school, where two officers cornered him and arrested him.
“Once he was handcuffed, the offender confirmed by exculpatory statement that he was indeed armed, but he had dropped the weapon in his attempt to escape,” Ellis said.
An intense search, joined by Glynn County police, Brunswick police and College of Coastal Georgia police, found a .380 caliber semi-automatic pistol under a folding sandwich board-style sign in front of the gym, Ellis said.
Avery is charged with two felonies, possession of a weapon on school property and obstruction of an officer with violence, and a high and aggravated misdemeanor of obstruction of a public school. Ellis said other charges may be pending.
This could be simply be a typo on a police form, a simple lie, or maybe he changed his name.
I’m speculating that this 2020 incident was not between strangers, as the MSM has been implying for weeks now, but between people who had some past history with each other.
It’s remarkable how often the Prestige Press manages to find somebody to sanctify who is a real dodgy character. Alternatively, how often do they find somebody who is even an okay guy?
Off the top of my head, Philando Castile of Minnesota seems like a workingman who had held the same job for 13 years when he was killed by that diversity hire Hispanic cop. He’d had a lot of minor brushes with the law over driving without insurance and driving without a license, but his record was not so bad that he couldn’t get a license for a legal gun.
But it is remarkable how out of touch the national media is that they so frequently put all their chips on bad actors.
