On January 27, he was arrested and detained for shooting two men at a crowded Lahore traffic stop. Washington called it a botched robbery attempt. Pakistan charged him with murder and possession of a concealed, unlicensed gun. Davis said he acted in self-defense. Pakistani authorities knew otherwise when they learned he shot the men 10 times in the back, fled the scene, and was carrying a telescope, a GPS set, bolt cutters, a survival kit, and a long-range radio. 

Moreover his gun was a powerful Glock semi-automatic pistol, able to fire 17 - 33 rounds, depending on what magazine is used. It's a weapon professionals prefer, Glock World saying, it's "designed to operate without compromise in extreme conditions."

Pakistani authorities discredited his botched robbery story. Other accounts say the dead men were ISI agents monitoring Davis.
