The Chevy vs Ford fued has been around since the beginning of time. In Virginia a man shot two people after a Chevy vs Ford argument. The Sheriff’s Office in Bedford county said that Mark Edwin Turner was charged with felony malicious wounding, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, and possession of a firearm by a felon.
At around 10:30pm on April 22nd a 911 call came in reporting gun shots. Officers arrived on scene to find three people with gun shot injuries. None of the injuries appeared to be life-threatening.
An attorney for Turner stated that his client was having Easter Sunday dinner with his girlfriend, her son and her son’s girlfriend. The argument broke out between Turner and the girlfriend’s son. They were arguing about whether Ford or Chevy was a better car manufacturer.

As the argument escalated Turner pulled out a knife. Turner’s girlfriend tried to step between them to break up the fight. She got stabbed in the lower back by Turner. It was a six-inch wound. Turner then ran back inside and grabbed his pistol.
As Turner returned his girlfriend tried to step in and stop the fight again when Turner shot her 5 times in the leg. The son was shot once in the arm and his girlfriend who got struck by two ricochet bullets was hit in the back and her cheek.

A police tactical team was dispatched. When they arrived on scene they heard multiple individuals moaning in pain. After going back inside Turner returned to the front yard to yell at police officers. Officers were able to subdue Turner by shooting him with a non-lethal bean bag round.
Police believed that drugs were involved. With a search warrant the police were able to search the premises. The police took a couple cell phones, a pistol, wooden baseball bat, three green plants, drug paraphernalia and a smoking device. Luckily no one was severely injured and all are expected to survive.
We do still have one question. Which do you think is better? Chevy or Ford?
