Tesla supercharging stations are a great place for Tesla owners to hang out while their EVs get juiced up but an unfortunate incident has surfaced.
In a tragic chain of events, a Tesla owner opens fire on another Tesla owner at a charging station in the USA. Tesla is the largest EV maker in the world and its supercharging network is getting stronger and stronger day by day. Unfortunately, another trend that is growing stronger day by day in the USA is gun violence. People keep arms on the pretext of self-defence. However, this has led to an astonishingly high number of shooting cases just this year alone. This is yet another case of this concerning practice.

Tesla Owner Opens Fire
This video was uploaded by NBC News on YouTube. It captures the details of a violent shooting that took place in a parking lot in Edgewater, Denver. As per the report, the firing took place at around 9:30 AM when two Tesla car owners were involved in a heated argument. One man lost his patience and shot the other 33-year-old man. He initially fled the scene, perhaps out of shock but then called 911 to intimate the Police about what had transpired. We are not sure if this was a trick to play the victim or claim that he shot the man in self-defence.

In any case, Jefferson Country Sheriff arrived at the scene to investigate the matter. The man who was shot was rushed to the hospital immediately. Tragically, he succumbed to his injuries in the hospital. The deceased was a resident of Denver and his identity will be released pending family notification. Interestingly, this episode took place in the parking lot of the shopping complex. Hence, there were a lot of cameras around. Moreover, there were quite a few Tesla cars parked there as well.

There are dash cams attached to some Tesla cars which could’ve caught the altercation between the two men. Also, the other cameras in the parking space must’ve caught something too. It is utterly concerning, the way people are falling prey to gun violence for any petty issue these days in the USA. We can only hope that the government makes strict laws around guns and weapons so that such situations could be avoided.
