Disgruntled Neighbor Opens Fire On Nearby Apartments Until Citizen Hero Intervenes

A lot can happen before police officers arrive at a call. In the case of one Oregon apartment complex, neighbors stepped in and subdued the suspect, hogtying him prior to officer arrival.

Not so Friendly Neighborhood Argument

Around 1:15 a.m. Luke Stolarzyk was yelling at another resident in the Stephens Creek Crossing apartments. Kenneth Nelson's dog has escaped from his apartment again, making Stolarzyk upset.

The argument was so loud that John Dickson, a friend of Nelson's, heard them. Officers pointed out that Stolarzyk was clearly intoxicated.

Dickson went out to stop the argument between the two men. He got Nelson and his sister back into their apartment.

Situation Escalating

After Dickson got the Nelson's into their home, Stolarzyk got into his face. According to police, he tried to hit Dickson in the face with his gun. The fight fizzled, and the men went back to their homes.

However, Stolarzyk did not stay at his home for long. He went to Nelson's home carrying an AR-15. According to authorities, he began to fire in the direction of Nelson.

He shot many different apartments and some vehicles with the bullets. Officers say he discharged about 29 rounds.

Resident Misty Garret told Pamplin Media Group, “It’s scary because there’s so many kids who live in this complex, and they literally shot into rooms.”

Stopping the Shooter

While Nelson attempted to get away, Dickson took it upon himself to get the jump on Stolarzyk. He crept up behind him and hit him with a stick.

Dickson tried to get the AR away from Stolarzyk, using his knee to get it out of his hands. According to officers, Dickson hit Stolarzyk in the face with the gun until he passed out.

Dickson received help from bystanders who assisted in taking apart the gun and hogtying Stolarzyk. When officers arrived, they took custody of Stolarzyk.

Police Arrival

According to the Post Millenial, when officers got to the scene, they saw "several people standing around the defendant, who was hogtied and had been beaten up.”

Stolarzyk was taken to the hospital via ambulance. As he was being prepped to leave he yelled, "You're lucky I didn't kill you!" He remains in police custody at the Multnomah County Detention Center with bail set at $320,000.

    1. My question is>> "why are people so angry all the time?" And YES Stephen, I agree with you... you have to be on guard 24/7 anywhere you go!!

      1. Because the world is overflowing with perverted morons who are willing to do anything for a moment of "pleasure."

  1. I work at a lab right now and we are trying to design a pistol grip and or a trigger that will sense drugs or alcohol in the shooters system and will not fire the gun.

  2. And I'm willing to bet that the msm would only "report" on the beating our "peaceful protestor" received...... as he discharged 29 rounds into multiple apartments, SARC!!!
    The TRUE heroes ( you know, the people who disarmed this DRUNKEN IDIOT) will be vilified for PREVENTING harm and damage to others.... INCLUDING CHILDREN!!
    As another person commented, we don't need more gun laws, we need more STUPID PEOPLE laws.... paraphrasing.
    To ALL Patriots, Stay Safe from the leftie hoards and watch your six!!
    Joe, Proud USAF vet.

  3. That's what I call a GREAT neighborhood watch !!!!!!
    Congratulations to the apartment complex for defending themselves !!!!!!! But, I would say the perpetrator is lucky, because in my neighborhood, we defend ourselves with guns !!!!!!!!!

  4. The world is 76% EXTROVERTED; turn on the tv and you can see and hear it; totally grotesque stupidity and immaturity. The loudest voices are in denial and ignorant of anything except ritualistic traditions. One of the biggest problems in america is the homosexual child focus perversion. I support open carry gun laws. Cleaning up the government gang of idiots and their behaviors will requires the use of guns.

    1. Alcohol is not the problem. It doesn’t come out of the bottle by itself -like the bullet doesn’t come out unless a person pulls the trigger. Don’t blame alcohol. Blame our lack of treatment for those who use it as a cure for their problems!! Jesus drank wine. ‘Nuff said.

  5. People have been locked in their house and restricted that they have forgotten how to socialize and we need to be able to go back to work and mingle it will take time but we need to get out and take a chance if you don’t you have already lost!

  6. Was it an intoxicated AR-15 or an Intoxicated Fool that was the problem here ? He could have used a shotgun, a handgun, a knife, a club, or any means to kill. AR-15's are not the problem here. It's the few Psycho's out there that use them for harming other humans. The majority , by far, that own AR-15's, do no harm. They are used for hunting or self defense against Lunatics such as this guy. It's the same as a drunk driver killing an innocent fellow driver. Is it the cars fault ? Should we ban all cars ? No. Per capita, the numbers for drunk driver deaths are very low, although unacceptable, as are Loonies using AR-15s to go on a killing spree. Don't blame the weapon or tool, blame the human hand that used it for the wrong purpose.
    In reality this should never had been allowed to escalate to this level. Someone in this apartment community should have called the police long before it reached this stage. Shame on them !
