Employee acted in self defense, says Don’s Guns dealer

Indianapolis gun dealer Don Davis reiterated today that one of his employees was acting in self defense during an exchange of gunfire that left the employee wounded and a 26-year-old man dead at his Westside store.

Brian Wayner died Monday after an exchange of gun shots between him and Benjamin Chance, 42, a clerk at Don’s Guns and Galleries, 3807 Lafayette Road.
Chance was wounded and remains hospitalized.

Davis held a news conference Thursday afternoon at his gun store, where he demonstrated what happened based on his viewing of a surveillance video. The video has not been made public by police. Spokesmen for both Indianapolis police and the Marion County prosecutor’s office said Thursday that an investigation into possible charges in the incident is continuing.

    Don is a class act. Does many things for the community and is an icon here in Indy. You pull a gun on someone in a gun shop, you should expect the possibility of being shot yourself.

    Another useless slug of society ‘Darwined’ out of the gene pool. Really, how many gun shops you ever been in where anybody behind the counter wasn’t carrying? Plus customers with concealed carry. Robbing a gun shop is going to be only marginally more successful than holding up a police station.

    No doubt about it, the worker acted in self defense, I can’t call him an Employee because he does not work for the State or the Federal Government. He is a Private Company Worker, not an Employee.
