  2. Dario Gomez on December 25, 2022 at 12:43 am

  3. Melvin Johnson on December 25, 2022 at 12:43 am

  8. michael perussina on December 25, 2022 at 12:51 am

    Why find blue shirt huh? Sounds like y’all pro criminal



  9. Just Tubing on December 25, 2022 at 12:51 am

    What do they want with Mr. Blue Shirt? Tis the season for giving. He tried to give them fresh bullet wounds. I think he should be left the hell alone now.



  10. lu££6 on December 25, 2022 at 12:52 am

    Respect bruh



  11. Thot A Mas Prime on December 25, 2022 at 12:53 am

    Those girls sat him up to be robbed



  12. Archer Sterling on December 25, 2022 at 12:55 am

    I guess it depends on if they were robbing him. If they were good job. If not… what the hell did they say to set you off like that?



  13. erik egar on December 25, 2022 at 12:56 am

    It was a setup! The girls were in on it!



  14. Julio Aragão on December 25, 2022 at 12:58 am

    Here in Brazil theres this saying that we simply LOVE: "When the prey is armed the predator goes to bed with an empty belly"



  15. Alex on December 25, 2022 at 1:00 am

    Qué lindo debe ser vivir en EEUU 😂



  16. Thot A Mas Prime on December 25, 2022 at 1:01 am

    Police can’t arrest a innocent person protecting himself and family….The police need to look for the robbers ugh



  17. M T on December 25, 2022 at 1:01 am

    Wtf do they need the man in the blue shirt for? He don’t wanna talk.



  18. Thot A Mas Prime on December 25, 2022 at 1:02 am

    You can’t even protect yourself anymore it’s sad



  19. Ver AJ on December 25, 2022 at 1:03 am

    Worlds worst country is America! Always gun crimes rapes and robberies etc!



  20. xNatchoZ on December 25, 2022 at 1:05 am

    Dude why the blue shirt guy and not the other 2 men, the blue guy was safe he’s life



  21. Town Bizznizz sports and ent on December 25, 2022 at 1:07 am

    It’s time to have this conversation with Gavin Newsom about second amendment rights California needs to become a open carry state once again



  22. Jen-LNicole on December 25, 2022 at 1:07 am

    Wait they pulled out a gun on him, yet he needs to found for protecting himself?? So fucking messes up.



  23. Natethegreat on December 25, 2022 at 1:08 am

    We’re not helping find anyone, good for him. And if he would’ve been shot and killed then what ? He’s supposed to be in trouble for saving his own life????



  24. Remy on December 25, 2022 at 1:09 am

    Blue shirt? Nah I don’t even know anyone that own a blue shirt.

    They pulled up on dude. It wasn’t to talk to him our lord and savior Jesus Christ



  25. Jack C. on December 25, 2022 at 1:09 am

    Sadly is Cali, the guy in the blue shirt will probably go to jail as well for having a gun.



  26. Bud gon STOP Spence on December 25, 2022 at 1:10 am

    He left his bag🤦🏾‍♂️



  27. FedUp on December 25, 2022 at 1:10 am

    Cities controlled by the Democrats/Left with the strictest gun laws, like LA, Chicago, NewYork, Portland, etc, have the most individual and mass shootings. So yes everyone let’s have more gun laws that don’t work; but punish law abiding gun owners!



  28. xXfOReVeRKisSEDXx on December 25, 2022 at 1:11 am

    3 guns at point blank range and all of them missed.



  29. Cameron Johnson on December 25, 2022 at 1:11 am

    Cops looking for the man in the blue shirt!? Why!? Even the news Ancora sounded confused!? If he was white it’d be alright tho huh?



  30. Ciera on December 25, 2022 at 1:11 am

    See and y’all wanna take gun rights away. The guns are not the problem it’s the ignorant people that uses them. He used the gun they way it supposed to. He scared them off. Reminds of the country. They don’t play that.



  31. ma ca on December 25, 2022 at 1:15 am

    Now y batter the blue shirt guy. He defended him self



  32. Michael Fyffe on December 25, 2022 at 1:15 am

    That’s what happens…



  33. Falco Rosso on December 25, 2022 at 1:17 am

    Why our city is so dangerous man its scary



  34. Devcs on December 25, 2022 at 1:19 am

    That’s how yk they don’t really wanna use it, pulled it first and had it pointed just to let dude take it out cock it and shoot first



  35. Samuel Buell on December 25, 2022 at 1:19 am

    Fuck this news anchor, fuck FOX 11 LA, and fuck California as a whole. I am a Californian native (born in San Diego), and I wouldn’t be sad if the whole state and their fucked up politics just fell off the map. These recent earthquakes look very promising.. 🤭💨💨😤
    Sorry to the cool people in Cali, get out while you can. It’s easy, just leave. Only good thing LA and San Diego is good for is traveling south for winter (warmer weathered winters). It would be sad to lose northern CA though. I’m sure they would get with it very quickly.



  36. getorade86 on December 25, 2022 at 1:20 am

    blue t-shirt problem? He defended himself! If he hadn’t used the gun first, they would have shot him



  37. J Price on December 25, 2022 at 1:20 am

    This looks setup. How the girls and robbers run the same way



  38. Rawd the Former Virgin on December 25, 2022 at 1:20 am

    Blue shirt waited long enough.



  39. connor craig on December 25, 2022 at 1:21 am

    Looks like a set up the 2 females where in on it look at the direction they run towards the robbers and in same direction instead of away why would they run towards the bad guys they most likely knew them and was a distraction. talking to him keeping him there to get robbed when the males turn up



  40. The FatherMind on December 25, 2022 at 1:22 am

    I know a guy with a blue shirt. If you need more information just reach out to me.



  41. lifewitluhhzion on December 25, 2022 at 1:22 am

  42. Gravel on December 25, 2022 at 1:22 am

  43. Thot A Mas Prime on December 25, 2022 at 1:23 am

    Right u gotta protect yourself at all cost ….It he would not have had the blinkee 🔫🔫🔫 on deck he could have been kilt instantly from the Robbers



  44. diambo4life on December 25, 2022 at 1:23 am

    That is situational awareness 100%. You can tell he was suspicious as he repositioned his stance to a defensive one when that car started backing out.



  45. Chrome on December 25, 2022 at 1:23 am

    hello no, no snitching ona hero. F*** that cali law BS



  46. DBCouper on December 25, 2022 at 1:32 am

    "now the LAPD is asking for help in finding the guy in the blue shirt"

    WHY? so they could find him and arrest him too? Treat him like a criminal too? Hold him in jail, maybe take away his firearm and dump him back on the streets again with those same would be robbers but next time WITHOUT his firearm?
    Nah.
    Nobody say shit.



  47. Carlos Velazquez on December 25, 2022 at 1:35 am

    Chicks were setting him up for sure



  48. Cazaputas _42 on December 25, 2022 at 1:35 am
