    3 Shot During Robbery At Vacant Fulton Home

    UPDATED: 6:34 pm EST February 11, 2010


    ATLANTA -- Police said two electricians were lured to a vacant house in south Fulton County and shot Thursday afternoon.
    The incident happened just after noon Thursday on Surrey Trail in Atlanta.
    Fulton County police told CBS Atlanta that a man called two electricians from two different companies to the home. When the first electrician arrived, the suspects robbed him, then shot him in the leg.
    Police say a short time later, the second electrician arrived.
    "The second electrician to arrive on the scene did not know the first electrician was in trouble,” said Fulton County Police Cpl. Kay Lester.
    The suspects then shot the second electrician in the leg. That's when the electrician pulled out a gun and shot the suspect in the head, according to investigators. The alleged robber was taken to the hospital in critical condition.
    “I’m just glad that the electrician had a weapon. He retaliated against him so they wouldn’t think about doing it again to no one else," said May Youmans, who saw all the police commotion.
    Other neighbors also commended the electrician was his quick thinking.
    “I think the state made it legal for civilians to carry weapons now because there are just too many robberies going on," said Clarence Martin, a neighbor. "You don’t want to be a victim.”
    Police said there may be a second suspect with a bullet wound. He fled on foot.

    How come all these BG's that get shot in the head keep ending up in critical? What kind of skulls do these guys have?

    The thug in this story certainly had no concern for the welfare of his victims, and it's too bad that two people had to be wounded, but the quick action by the second victim was a great one...'shot him in the head'. Too bad he couldn't have made a repeat offender a dead offender (Uncle Ted's rules).

    Here's another example of how a gun could literally save one's life...something that the news media will probably not focus on much.

    The electrician will probably be fired now for carring while on the job!

    A vast void between the ears. I think the bullets have a tendency to get lost. They can't find any brain cells to destroy.

    For thugs there are no vital organs in the head.

    “I’m just glad that the electrician had a weapon. He retaliated against him so they wouldn’t think about doing it again to no one else," said May Youmans, who saw all the police commotion."

    Is this the same guy they always interview after a tornado? Maybe he shot him because he was in fear of his life.

    "Other neighbors also commended the electrician was his quick thinking.

    I am not sure he can identify "quick thinking". So if robberies go down civilians won't be allowed to carry weapons.

    If he'd been killed he would lose his job too.

    And what do these idiots think, that a shot in the leg is somewhat benign? He could easily have bled out from a hit to the femoral artery.

    If the BG was bent over he could of blown his brains out, instead he went for a head shot.

    Let's keep an eye out for any legal action against the electrician. I've read in these blogs that a person can expect a legal bill of $20k or better if he shoots a person, justifiable or not!
