Man fatally shoots attacker
By DAVID OVALLE
A man in North Miami-Dade stopped a would-be robber with a bullet that proved fatal Thursday night, police said.
Two men were trying to rob a third in front of 752 NW 102nd St. at about 9:45 p.m., Miami-Dade police said.
One of the robbers escaped and was being hunted by police late Wednesday.
It was not clear whether charges would be filed against the shooter.
Florida's new ''Stand Your Ground'' law allows anyone who feels threatened to shoot -- even if they don't see a gun.
There have been three high-profile self-defense killings in recent months -- none of the men involved was charged.
In January, liquor-store owner Pedro Agudelo shot and killed an armed man who tried robbing the West Gables business. Five years earlier, Agudelo wounded a man in a similar robbery.
In November, a Miami man tried robbing another man with a nickel-plated lighter made to look like a handgun. With a real gun, his victim shot and mortally wounded him.
In October, a security guard at Tootsie's strip club in Miami Gardens shot into a car that was headed toward him. One man died, another was wounded.
