If you're going to shoot at a prostitute, you shouldn't be surprised when they shoot back. 28- and 25-year-old Cesar and Jasiel Salmeron started a shootout in an ill-fated attempt to retrieve their iPhones from hookers at a Stockton, Calif., motel. One of them allegedly let a round off to get the women to open the door, and they were shocked to discover the pistol-packin’ professionals.

Someone in the room returned fire, striking one of the men. When the Salmorons materialized at a local hospital, they were promptly arrested and charged with assault with a deadly weapon and negligent discharge of a firearm.
