    Good news

    TN man defends self, will most likely not be charged.

    Robbers pick wrong target; two shot, one killed by gun-toting victim The Commercial Appeal

    Two would-be robbers forgot to ask their victim a key question:

    Do you have a gun and know how to use it?

    Data Center: Search handgun-carry permits. The 21-year-old Bartlett man's answer might have prevented the two 16-year-olds from being shot.

    Instead, an exchange of gunfire between the Bartlett man and the robbers Wednesday night left one teenager dead and the other wounded.

    Alyssa Moore, a spokeswoman for Memphis police, said authorities have not released the names of the robber who was killed or the other teenager, who was in noncritical condition.

    The robbery portion of the case is still under investigation and charges are pending. State prosecutor Thomas Henderson said Friday the office will not prosecute the potential robbery victim, saying his actions appear justified.

    The man, who works for a local gun range, declined comment Friday. He asked that his name not be published because authorities told him the attempted robbery may be gang-related.

    The shootout occurred about 10 p.m. Wednesday at the Edgewater Apartments east of Sycamore View and south of Raleigh-LaGrange.

    According to Moore, one of the suspects fired at the man during an attempted robbery.

    The victim, who was within 3 feet of one robber and about 10 from the other, fired five shots, four of them striking the would-be robbers.

    According to the state Department of Public Safety, the potential victim is a licensed handgun permit holder.

    Critical acute failure of the victim selection process.
