    From Channel 4 Miami

    Man Turns On Would-Be Robbers, Kills One
    Call Miami-Dade CrimeStoppers At 305-471-TIPS
    Reporting
    Shomari Stone HIALEAH GARDENS (CBS4) ― Four robbers get more than they bargain for when they target an elderly Hialeah Gardens man. Police said he shot and killed one of them while he was being attacked.

    Police said 74-year-old, Jorge Leonton was not aware he was being followed from the bank to his home along Northwest 91st Avenue and 119th Street.

    "I feel horrible, my body is still shaking," said Margarita Leonton, who is still shaken up on Saturday, after police said 4 armed men attacked her husband. "I never thought that this could happen especially at 10:30 in the morning."

    Jorge Leonton was questioned by police after they said he drove to a nearby bank, withdrew cash, and began driving back home. On Saturday night he is back at home with his wife.

    Little did he know, four men were following from behind, when he arrived home, and got out of his car police said one of the thugs put him in a chokehold position and demanded money he had just withdrawn from the ATM.

    "He came to me with such great force, he was so violent and started to choke me," said Jorge Leonton. He said he told the robber to let go, Leonton has a conceal weapon permit.

    "I took out my gun and told him, let me go or I'm going to shoot you, because I have a heart condition," said Leonton. "I can't breath, you can't grab me by the neck, because I'll die, I told him that 3 times."

    The alleged robber refused to let go and Leonton shot him in a torso. "My vision became blurry and that's when I shot him," said Leonton.

    The other three crooks drove away. Jorge told CBS4's Shomari Stone he didn't want to shoot him, but he had to because his life was in jeopardy. "It's bad I didn't want to shoot a human being, he is a human being regardless."

    Paramedics lifted the wounded suspect to Ryder Trauma Center where he later died.

    Margarita said her husband's gun saved his life. "If he wouldn't been armed, I think he would have been killed," she said.

    They are searching for the other 3 suspects who got away.

    If you have any information please call Miami-Dade Crimestoppers at (305) 471-TIPS. If your tips leads to an arrest you can receive up to $1,000.
    You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.

    With all due respect to Mr Leonton---these animals are not people, they are predators...and need to be dispatched as such.

    No way I would have pulled a gun and then told the robber to let me go or else as I have a heart condition. I don't think that is necessary, and it COULD be a real bad idea as you might get shot or stabbed by one of the others (if not the guy who has you in a chokehold). Take them by surprise and shoot. They deserve it.
    Anti-gunners seem to believe that if we just pass enough laws, we can have utopia. Unfortunately, utopia is NOT one of our choices.

    Another one bites the dust,
    Another one bites the dust.
    And another one's gone,
    And another one's gone,
    Another one bites the dust.
    Hey Hey!!

    Take the old guy out to eat at Sirlion Stockade or some other such type place. THAT is the reason people carry, to protect themselves from the garbage in this world. Hopefully, the other pieces of trash will get caught and be charged with murder. Garbage is real brave when ganging up on 1 person, but run like the wind when the victim fights back. Good going, Jorge.
    A person is justified in the use of deadly force, if such person reasonably believes deadly force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to such person or a third person.

    I hope someone close to Mr. Leonton can help him with his obvious remorse. It's so sad that the one who feels the worst about the event is the victim. As an earlier poster stated, these aren't humans they're preditors with no humanity.

    The Second Amendment has nothing to do with hunting. It is about keeping the government in check. This requires that the citizenry is well armed and at all times has immediate access to arms.
