Louisiana Woman Claims That a Local Business Owner Pulled a Gun on Her Family in Viral Facebook Post
It's a wild photo that has been shared thousands of times by a woman who is sending a warning to her followers.
A shocking photo on Dasia Jack's Facebook page has been shared over 3,000 times since she posted it back on September 14th claiming that the owner of a local Lake Charles donut shop pulled a gun on her family.
The image seems to be taken from the inside of the vehicle—and while we reached out to Jack for comment, some of the replies under the photo seemed to add context to the picture.
Facebook user Darrell Johnson replied to the photo, insinuating that Jack may have posted the image in an attempt to make herself "look like the victim." A reply from Kelli Murray seems to suggest that the owner of the business may have pulled up as some type of disagreement or altercation was unfolding on her property.
Both Johnson and Murray continued to go back and forth—arguing about what actually happened at the Donut King location on Hwy 14 in Lake Charles.
Eventually, Murray and Jack both claimed that they went to the local business along with at least one other individual to check on a family member who was "threatened" by her daughter's ex-boyfriend.
We spoke to Murray who offered even more details via her account of how things unfolded.
Me and my daughter and her best friend went and check on MY MOTHER after she was threatened to be slap and get f*cked up by another employee ( my daughter ex boyfriend). We went to Donut King to work out the situation and get a understand of what going on... The 3rd employee that was in the building called the owner and told her we was outside fighting.. The owner pulled up got out the truck with another employee.. As the employee was walking to us asking us what happen the owner went to the backseat and got the gun, pull the gun out and shot it in the air then point it at us.. she put the gun in our face told us to get the f*ck in the car and pointed the guns at the employees and told them to get in the building. No one had any weapons.. After she shot the gun we got in the car.. We try to take off but a customer was in our way and she steady screaming and point the gun at us telling us to get off the property as the customer was driving past. And that's the story...There was no fighting going on.. No one was even close to each other.. We were talk and talking loudly.. But no one was fighting.. Everyone involved was like family so no one was gonna hurt each other... And she knew that... I even worked there off and on for like 7 years... She knows me and my daughter... The employee (The Man) is like our family and one is my mother.. so nothing that bad was gonna happen...
Both Murray and Jack claim the woman kept her finger on the trigger even as they were leaving the parking lot.
We reached out to Lake Charles Police and they told us that in regards to this incident "a police report was completed and a citation was issued" but beyond that information they couldn't provide any more details at the moment "due to the matter having to be reviewed by the Calcasieu Parish District Attorney's Office.
We also reached out to Donut King—a business that has served their local community for many years without issue—but didn't receive an answer.
Whatever the situation is—based on what we do know, it seems as if things could have been way worse. We will update this story when and if new information becomes available.
