DOG CHAPMAN SHOOTING INCIDENT (UPDATED)
 

What Really Happened

 


In response to media requests, here is a follow-up  to yesterday's statement (see below) re a shooting incident involving Duane “Dog” Chapman in Colorado.

In the early morning hours, Duane “Dog” Chapman was victorious in capturing  the fugitive who shot at him and his bounty hunter family yesterday in Colorado Springs.   35-year-old Hoang Nguyen was out on a $25,000 bond for domestic violence and gun charges.  Nguyen allegedly fired at least one shot at the Chapmans, then escaped.  However, Nguyen was unable to elude the determined team for a second time.  Dog and his family captured him at 2:20 a.m.

“It was a matter of public safety,” said Chapman, from Colorado.   “We had to catch him before anyone else got hurt.  We were not going to give up until we found him.”

Earlier news reports mentioned that Nguyen was captured “without incident.”  However, Chapman stated that Nguyen tried to flee a second time and had to be subdued.  

Chapman added, “I was overwhelmed with the response we received almost immediately, and want to say ‘mahalo' for everyone's prayers and kind comments.  We are all fine, and humbled by everyone's sincere concern.”

A&E crews were filming for “Dog the Bounty Hunter,” and the exciting, heart-stopping events will be aired in a future episode.  However, local station KKTV 11 did air some footage from the incident in Colorado Springs.

“Dog the Bounty Hunter” airs tonight on A&E.
