$$$ A Seattle man is facing felony assault charges after allegedly shooting at two people who interrupted an 0ral s3x session taking place on the street. Police said the incident took place around 2 a.m. on Aug. 26, when an unnamed man and woman were walking down a downtown street arguing with each other. At the same time, a man later identified as Paul Hunter was receiving 0ral s3x from an unidentified woman. The woman performing the alleged s3x act on the suspect was apparently spooked by the quarreling couple and fled the scene before the suspect had climaxed, according to The Smoking Gun. The tuxedo-clad suspect was allegedly angry by the course of events and pulled out a 9mm Kel-Tec pistol. “You’re dead mother (expletive),” Hunter shouted at the pair before opening fire, according to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. “You’re dead.” [HP]
