Man Shoots from Balcony – level 2

29-04-2020 07:00

People in Kent, UK, filmed a man who was standing on a balcony and he was firing guns. The incident happened on Wednesday morning near a shopping center.

It seems that the man posted a video on social media in which he showed the guns and boasted about them. Later, the man filmed himself standing on the balcony and shooting. He probably streamed the incident live on his social media channel.

Armed police warned people to stay away from the area, and they arrested the man. The man is in his 30s, and police also found four fake guns in the apartment.

Difficult words: incident (when something happens), boast (to say or show what you have or what you can do, usually in a way that other people do not like), fake (not real).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
