Handgun Owner - 1, BB Gun Owner - 0
A would-be robber remained hospitalized in critical condition this afternoon after he was shot by one of his intended victims.
The man was shot about 1:30 a.m. after he followed several people to their car in a Westport parking garage in the 4000 block of Pennsylvania Avenue.
As the people were getting into their car, the man, who had earlier asked them for money, pulled up his shirt and revealed a gun in his waistband, Kansas City police said.
One of the carís occupants retrieved his own gun from inside the vehicle and fired.
Police later determined that the wounded man was carrying a BB gun.
Obviously the BG didn't consider the possibility that his intended victim might be armed.
