    Question Did Anyone Catch This Story ?????

    It was on the radio last night.

    This is all that I caught.

    Some guy armed with a only a pocket knife defended himself against TWO Bad Guy robber/attackers ???? ~ One was chasing him with a SHOTGUN ~ He stood his ground ~ Killed One Of The Bad Guys & Injured The Other one. I need information on this story...you know everything I know at this point.

    I DO NOT know Where in the country (aka what State) this event took place in.

    Any forum member who heard this story ~ Please post any information you have on it here.

    I need more info before I can even begin to hunt for the full story on the Internet.

    I'll be checking back. THANKS!

    OK OK Here is the story for the second time on this forum.
    Thanks To All for your help.
    I thought I had read nearly everything on CombatCarry yesterday...but, I sure missed that one.

    Police: Ex-Marine Repels Gang, Kills Teen
    by UPI Wire
    May 30, 2006


    ATLANTA, May 30, 2006 (UPI) -- A former Marine armed only with a pocketknife fought off a group of Atlanta robbers armed with a gun, killing a pregnant teenager, police say.
    Thomas Autry had just left his job as a waiter at Jocks & Jills Restaurant late Monday when the alleged robbers pulled up next to him in a car and got out, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. He began running and yelling "Fire" while getting his knife out of his backpack.
    Autry kicked a shotgun out of one man's hand and stabbed the 17-year-old and one of the men, while another man tried to shoot him with a handgun, which misfired, police said. The group abandoned the robbery attempt and fled, officers said.
    Police caught up with the robbery suspects at a hospital where the teenager was pronounced dead and one of the men was being treated for critical injuries.
    Autry will not face any criminal charges since he clearly acted in self-defense, Homicide Detective Danny Stephens said. Investigators said they believe that his suspected attackers are behind a string of robberies of pedestrians, including one a few minutes before the encounter with Autry in which two men were relieved of a cell phone and video camera.

    It was IIRC reported that one bad guy was in fact a pregnant woman.

    Senior moment, perhaps?


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.
