Marvell Weaver, Teen Playing ‘Knockout’ With Stun Gun, Shot Twice By Victim

A Michigan teenager who assaulted a man with a stun gun was shot twice when the victim defended himself with a legally concealed pistol.

In May, Marvell Weaver, 17, was playing a variation of “knockout,” a brutal and senseless game in which an assailant sucker punches an unsuspecting person with the intention of knocking him unconscious with one blow. The difference was that Weaver decided to attack his victim with a stun gun.

But Weaver, who said he’d played the game about six or seven other times, didn’t anticipate what would happen next. The intended victim, a 28-year-old father who was waiting for his 6-year-old daughter to get dropped off from school at a bus stop, had a gun on him.

“I saw the van circle twice, and the second time three kids came out. I didn’t suspect anything. I hadn’t any enemies, or any reason to believe they would be looking to do anything to me,” the victim, who chose to remain anonymous, told WILX.

According to Michigan Live, Weaver approached the victim and turned, pressing the stun gun into the victim’s side repeatedly. The weapon misfired, and Weaver turned to flee.
