    NEW HAVEN, CT
    A would-be mugger was shot after an argument with his intended victim Monday afternoon, witnesses said.

    New Haven police said the attempted robbery took place near St. Michael's Church, at 29 Wooster Place, shortly after 1 p.m. The person who was shot was taken to Yale-New Haven Hospital and has non life threatening injuries.

    Officer Joe Avery, New Haven Police spokesperson, said a man with a knife tried to mug a second man sitting on a park bench eating his lunch on Wooster Place. According to police, the attempted mugger said to the man, "Give me all your money or I'll stab you."

    Police said the would be mugger backed his victim up to the fence and was then shot twice in the chest by the intended victim.

    Alexander Bragg, a neighborhood watch captain, said people in the area heard an argument and several shots. Avery said the intended victim shot the other man, who was attempting to rob him with a knife.

    Police are interviewing the intended victim and said the gun was registered and he was properly licensed to carry it.

    Again, something about "bringing a knife to a gunfight" seems to be a recurring theme in a lot of places.

    Must be how the cliche got created, huh?
