This Guy Shot Three People After Heated “Chevrolet vs. Ford” Argument

Police in Bedford, Virginia arrested a man in late April after he shot three people during an argument about whether Chevrolet or Ford is better. No, this is not a joke.

Fox 13 reports that 56-year-old Mark Edwin Turner was arrested on 2 a.m. April 23 after a standoff which lasted more than two hours. Authorities responded to a report of a shooting at a local home and found three people outside with gunshot wounds.

Speaking with WSET-TV, Bedford County Commonwealth’s Attorney Wes Nance said that Turner, his girlfriend, her son, and her son’s girlfriend were all having dinner on the night of April 22. While in the front yard, Turner and his girlfriend’s son got into an argument about whether Chevrolet or Ford is the better auto manufacturer.

Things became so heated that Turner reportedly pulled out a knife and stabbed his girlfriend in the lower back as she tried to get between him and her son. Turner proceeded to return into the home where he retrieved a gun and shot his girlfriend a total of five times in the legs as she again tried to protect her son. Authorities say that her son was hit in the arm and that her son’s girlfriend was hit by two bullets which ricocheted.

Turner refused to go down without a fight when authorities arrived on the scene and started yelling at officers. Police were able to shoot Turner with a bean bag and swiftly took him into custody.

Turner has been charged with felony malicious wounding, use of a firearm in commission of a felony, and possession of a firearm by a felon.

    Can’t really imagine this happening between NIO and Tesla fans.

    • Mr. EP9

      There are NIO fans?

      • Dude

        • Marc Gruben

          Wait… Isn’t Nio the dude from The Matrix?

          • LJ

  • Mr. EP9

    What a complete childish baboon. I get arguments can get heated but shooting people over it just goes to show how immature you are. I hope this coward receives a lengthy sentence.

    • Adilos Nave

      I’d wager a guess that meth and alcohol were definitely involved.

  • Peter Vancouver

    Once in prison, he’s going to have to decide between the Ford or Chevy gang. I hear the Russian Yugo gang is pretty nasty.

    • Alberto Barrales

      I guess the Russians annexed Yugo just as they did Crimea.

      • Ogden Lafaye

        The Crimeans are absolutely delighted. Peace, Prosperity, Progress and Justice have returned to Crimea…Thank Russia!

        • Enter Ranting

          Wow – that was fast. Russia can’t take care of itself, but spiffed Crimea right up!

      Pardon me sir, but your “idiot” is showing.

      • TB

        LOL…J/K… I was poking fun at the mentality of this moron.

  • Maher

    Has to be a “you know who” fan 😉

  • ErnieB

    Wait! Wait! It’s was not Florida?!?!? Whaaahhh

    • Ben

      They believe he was a plant or at least in collusion with ‘Florida Man’. Details are still developing.

    • Eric D

      You stole my thunder! LMAO!

  • eb110americana

    At least he had a good reason. /s

  • Marc Gruben

    Don’t know what side of the argument this dude was on, but you just KNOW he was taken to prison in a squad car made by whichever brand he was against. Hahaha!

  • FordMopar

    It’s like straight out of a Joe Dirt- type of comedy movie or something. It’s real? Really? Over a piece of metal with certain logo/brand? Lol….

  • helloWorld

    everyone knows the best car is a mopar

  • Thunderbolt

    dumb-ass redneck.

  • El de Ngaan

    It was 3 against 1 obviously so he felt his life was in great danger. So he had to use excessive force to save his life which he did.

  • rdawodu

    Amazing the police didnt fear for their lives and the lives of the victims. He stabbed and shot his girlfriend 5 TIMES. However they had the presences of mind to hit him with a bean bag instead of deadly force. Wish they threated everyone like this.

    • Lloyd Anthony

      Man Listen!! That’s the first thing I thought.

  • Rzrlf

    build that wall, am i right?

  • uS’gedlemba

    Let me get this right, the guy stabbed his girlfriend and went inside the house got a gun and shot her five times and then shot the son and his girlfriend; the cops were called in after reports of multiple gun shots; the cops got there armed with a a non lethal weapon???

    So no one is willing to address the elephant in the room? No, no the part about whether the 56 year old’s race was factored in during the dispatch briefing of the cops….but who was pro Ford and who was pro Chevy?

    • DMJ

      If you can arrest a man – no matter how stupid he is – without violence, why use it? I´m sure that cops had guns also, they just didn´t use them.
      I think that US have a culture of vendetta instead of justice, that’s why you have so many cases of police violence and the biggest jail population in the world…

  • Adilos Nave

    What in the world are you even talking about? “Shootist?” Adi? Are you high on meth?

  • TheEvilBlight

    Some people get shot in the back while unarmed, others get a beanbag after they kill people, la la la

    • TheEvilBlight

      I await the “young people are violent” bit, forgetting that this man is in his 50s..

  • Enter Ranting

    But wait, you missed the most important part of the story – is Turner a Chevy or a Ford man?

    • schnittz

      Ford owners are hot heads

  • Piotr B

    I hope no one shoots me but Fords are better pickups….
