Nursing Home Security Guard Shoots Armed Man

A security guard shot a man in the parking lot of a St. Petersburg nursing home after the man retrieved a gun from his vehicle.

Jacob Michaels, 33, drove his girlfriend and friend to their workplace, Bons Secours Maria Manor Nursing Home, 10300 4th St. N., around 11:30 p.m. Saturday so the friend could retrieve her car. Michaels waited in the car, according to a St. Petersburg Police press release.

While he waited, he was approached by Richard Dunn, 41, the nursing home security guard. Michaels, who isn’t an employee of the home, became angry and the pair argued. That’s when Michaels retrieved a gun from his car and Dunn shot him, twice.

The wounds are not life threatening, according to police.

Charges haven’t been filed since the shooting appears justified, the press release stated. The case is being reviewed by homicide detectives.
