    Street robbery foiled by armed victim...

    ...maybe1...

    Cliff Notes version:
    25 year old man and friend walking... a trio comes up to them and one (at least) is armed and demands money. A "struggle" ensues. 25 year old pulls his own gun and shoots robber. Robber escorted to hospital by his buddies and dies. Buddies are arrested.

    Story here

    More stories here

    1The reason I say maybe is that there is the possibility that the shooter was there to sell drugs to the now dead buyer.

    The two guys that were arrested at the hospital said they were out to buy drugs. It's possible they were out to steal drugs from a dealer... the guy who did the shooting? We may never know, and I don't know anything about the college hill neighborhood in St.L.

    Sometimes it isn't easy determining whether stories that are "self defense related" are thug on thug or thug on innocent victim.
    Rats!
    It could be worse!
    I suppose

    I love happy endings. Wonder if the shooter was legally carrying. And, if he wasn't could he be charged?

    Always sad when a person dies even if they are doing something stupid. That being said, if more people get shot for attempted robberies/assaults then the BG's would think first (hopefully) and stop being the BG's. In gun free zones they are getting by with it. The saddest part is that our "leaders" are too flipping stupid to see this...or, they are using these gun free zone cases to give them back-ups for gun control and that is probably the real reason.

    "Davis was shot in the legs, chest, face and arm."

    This must be what they mean when saying "Keep firing until you have stopped the threat".

    A great story...a dead dirtbag and two fellow dirtbags who 'should' be charged with his death.
    Proverbs 27:12 says: “The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and suffer for it.”
