According to WSMV, “58-year-old Zane Friend was outside taking a break when [three] armed men reportedly started running at him.” Gonzales allegedly had a shotgun with him, but Friend was able to draw his pistol and shoot first. He struck Gonzales in the abdomen.
The other two suspects fled when Friend shot Gonzales.
Friend then ran inside to get towels and came back out to keep Gonzales alive. This meant performing CPR on Gonzales while waiting for first responders to arrive.
