JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Jacksonville Jaguars receiver Kassim Osgood leapt out a second-floor window to escape a gun-wielding man who attacked him and a 19-year-old Jaguars cheerleader, according to police.
The armed intruder exchanged gunfire with his ex-girlfriend, Mackenzie Rae Putnal, after putting a gun to her head on Monday night, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office.
The gunman took Putnal’s cell phone and tackled her as she tried to flee. When he ordered the couple to sit on the floor, she escaped downstairs in her parents’ home and grabbed a gun, police said. They shot at each other and both missed.
Osgood, meanwhile, jammed a chair under the door, jumped out a window to the lawn below and ran to a neighbor’s house to call police.
I love this story because the sequence of events feels like it was pulled straight from a cookie-cutter action movie. Man and Girlfriend hanging out watching TV. Ex-boyfriend comes in and pistol whips the shit out of everyone. Girlfriend escapes downstairs, gets a gun, and has a shootout with the ex. Current boyfriend dips out the window. Classic! I just wish there was commentary with this story, because i feel that Osgood probably said “Oh shit I’m outta here” about 15-20 times, easily.
