Leaving the Monte Carlo Club at 2:19am and this happened? I'm shocked! It's all about the 408 in the 650 after 10pm in DTMV

Way to go super cop guy.... Jeeze, risk death for what ????

All you had to do was get the lic. plate number and go home and call it in.

Secondly , once again the old adage... after midnite only cops, drunks and bad guys are on the road.

Time to grow up buddy..If you swim in the shark tank, don't be surprised if you become food.

"....the man decided to leave the SUV and whoever was inside alone after they ended up facing each other in an empty parking lot."

Seriously?

Just getting the license plate number to provide to police (who still would have found the casings to corroborate his story) wasn't enough? He actually followed them?

Why don't you hang a "Just kill me now" sign around your neck? Stupidity never ceases to amaze me.

not a wise decision to follow such thugs. He should have followed enough to get the license plate and car model/color,etc..

It is a strange story, because there has got to be more to the story that he isn't telling. Such as why the white SUV bumped him...twice. Once is an accident, two is on purpose. Also, the only way someone would be fool hardy enough to follow someone with a gun is because he was high and had one also. Some of those shell casings could be his. There is more to this story, who was the SUV registered to, and what does the passenger who chose not to run got to say? Did the 'victim' call that night or wait until the morning, etc. This story is missing a lot of info.
