The deputies were working special duty at Club 3DL, 1524 Gordon Highway, when a fight broke out just before 2 a.m., according to a Richmond County Sheriff’s Office incident report. Security removed four people from the club.

The officers were walking with one of them and telling the crowd to go to their vehicles when shots were fired in their direction.

After the gunfire stopped, officers saw Dominique Deangelo Holliman close the trunk to a gray Chevrolet Malibu and try to flee.

Officers drew their weapons and took Holliman into custody. A black assault rifle was in the trunk.

Holliman, of Dahlia Drive, has been charged with two counts of aggravated assault on a police officer, criminal damage to property, criminal trespass and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

I oversimplified. My

I oversimplified. My apologies. But the concept that I shared is still true. There's a strong anti-gun sentiment in the media.

For example, they readily report gun crimes, but are apparently unaware when a gun owner defends themselves or prevents a crime or assault.

I'd just like to see accuracy and equal time when gun-related issues are reported in the media.
