    Security guard missed all three shots.

    No excuse for missing a target after firing 3 shots. Thankfully no innocent bystanders were injured or killed. Not a good situation for Brinks.

    Maybe he wasn't aiming to kill but to scare him. He wasn't trying to take a life. It's not yours to take.
