Metal Guitarist Stops Robbery
2009-07-07 by Tyler S. | 142 Comments
Guitarist Phil Fasciana of Malevolent Creation was involved in a shootout with a crack addicted robber in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida at about 3:00 PM on July 3rd. According to Fasciana, "I went in this little store on my way home to get a chocolate milk, of all things, and little did I know, I was walking into a life-or-death situation," he says. "When I walked into the store, I did not notice anyone else in the store until someone started screaming at me and pointed a gun at me. I nearly shit myself, because the dude looked wacked out of his mind and fired four shots directly at me and I went down to the ground because I thought I was surely shot. After about 30 seconds, I realized I was not hit at all and the shooter thought I was dead or injured and started attacking the store worker when I snuck up behind the burglar and talked [to] him and took the gun out of his hands and told him to get out of the store. He then reached in his sock and pulled another gun out and pointed it at me and that's when I fired two shots into his head, killing him instantly!"

"Never in my life has anything so twisted happened to me before and I would like to forget it ever happened, but I had no other choice. Lucky for me, the stupid crackhead burglar had the worst aim in the world and missed me with all four shots from about 10 feet away! Needless to say, all charges have been dropped and the store owner has offered me a lifetime of chocolate milk! Ha Ha!

I have been in some scary situations before, but having someone shoot out you from that close and miss is a fucking miracle and I have no remorse for killing the assailant who tried to take my life and the store owner's.

I am very lucky and could easily be dead at this moment, but I'm not and I'm gearing up for our Mexican, South American and European headlining tour which start at the end of July.

I would like to put this behind me and not talk about it anymore. It was the most fucked up thing I have ever been involved with, besides my ex-girlfriend!!"

Fasciana said in a statement released to blabbermouth a few days later that police have been unable to identify the robber, that he would like this not to get much attention (he does not want his dying father and grandfather to find out), and that he does not consider himself a hero.

This news was already updated to reflect that blabbermouth got it wrong and that he never made any attempt to talk to the guy who had just shot at him four times, he just tackled him and kicked his ass.

Sure, but that plan shouldn't be from the get-go "I want to shoot him in the face!" If it's just a gut reaction (which it probably was), then sure thing but it shouldn't be personal preference.

for an average person, the gut feeling is most likely gonna be self defense and therefore avoid the attacker in any way. i have faith that people are not actually putting thought into whether they should or shouldn't kill the person.

If the guy didnt pull out a second gun he would have just gotten his ass beat pretty good. But no, he pulled out another gun in yet another attempt to kill the guitar player. He deserved the two bullets to the dome. Self defense, nothing wrong with what happened.

I feel sorry for him having to get to a point where it was fight or flight, I don't think anyone could even fathom that feeling..."I either take this life, or lose my own," which is a wild thing in itself. Admittedly, it is a pretty metal story and for chocolate milk? When I was reading this story I was almost about to facepalm..."Please, don't be a liquor store." Because he probably wouldn't be seen in such a light if it were, or it wouldn't carry that oddity.

"The guy did ask the cops to keep it out of the press."

Really? From Blabbermouth.com:
"Rock Radio spoke to Fasciana about Detective Shotwell's comments, and the guitarist replied: "The store where it took place isn't considered Fort Lauderdale. What happened is true and I really don't know how it leaked into Blabbermouth because I never told anyone about it."

(For the record, Fasciana's original statement was sent to BLABBERMOUTH.NET from one of two separate e-mail accounts that Phil has confirmed that he is in control of. BLABBERMOUTH.NET did not edit Fasciana's comments except for clarity and no other person contributed to the story.)"
