    Man defends himself during street robbery

    Police: Man Defends Himself During Robbery, 3 Injured - Cincinnati breaking news, weather radar, traffic from 9News | Channel 9 WCPO.com
    CINCINNATI -- Three men were injured in a shooting and robbery in Price Hill late Monday night.

    Police say three men tried to rob a victim in the 3800 block of West Liberty Avenue.

    The victim was shot in the abdomen, but as the men ran away, the victim shot back.

    Two men later showed up at University Hospital with gunshot wounds. One of the men has serious injuries.

    No charges have been filed and the incident is still under investigation.
    Its going to be a loooong hot summer in the city. There have been multiple shootings every day/night for a month. And its still early spring. Off to work I go!

    I hope the victim will be ok. It's a shame he didn't kill all three of them! But as they say, Two Out Of Three Ain't Bad.

    And the important people whine because people don't or won't invest in or move to Over The Rhine, an old formerly-German neighborhood that used to be good before it turned into just another inner-city 'hood.

    While to my mind this is a morally righteous shoot, was it legally justified given that the BGs were running away?

    It depends on which story, the newpaper reported this one:
    Robbery victim fights back, shoots suspect | cincinnati.com | Cincinnati.Com

    I hate the news here, you dont know who to believe, if anyone.



    PRICE HILL - Two men were arrested overnight after a robbery victim fought back and fired at his assailants late Monday in the 3800 block of West Liberty Street, according to Cincinnati police.

    Three suspects, including at least one armed with a gun, approached a man about 10:30 p.m. in the 3800 block of West Liberty Street in Price Hill and attempted to rob him, police said.

    The victim pulled out and fired his own gun at the suspects, striking and wounding one of them seriously.

    He was taken to University Hospital. The other two are in police custody. Their names and charges have not been released.

    The victim was not injured, police said.

    Further details were not released.

    To answer the side bar questions if the news is correct on their facts (that's a stretch, I know) technically the was a "bad" shoot under Ohio law. You cannot shoot a fleeing suspect. However, besides being a political whore, the Hamilton County prosecutor is a decent, pro CCW guy. There have been several cases where victims have shot back when they probably shouldn't have... Mr. Deter's answer is this; " Don't rob people in Hamilton County" I got to love that.

    The way it SHOULD be, but it certainly isn't...hope it works out for the victim.
