    GOOD: Robbery Victim Shoots Attacker - Queens, NY

    Robbery victim kills intruder

    The victim of a robbery in Queens fatally shot one of the three intruders early Tuesday morning with a gun they left behind, police said.

    A man and his girlfriend were returning to their Middle Village apartment about 4:50 a.m. when they were confronted by three men, police said.

    According to the victim, the men forced the couple into the apartment, where they tied them up with plans to rob the place, cops said.

    Somehow, the victim was able to get loose and grab a gun one of the suspects had left unattended, he told police. He shot one of his attackers in the head, killing him.

    The other two fled.

    No arrests had been made last night.

    Police continued to question the victim, who neighbors said kept odd hours and was unfriendly.

    "We didn't think they belonged in a neighborhood like this," said one neighbor in the family friendly area. "No one ever said hello or goodbye to them, and we preferred it that way."
    Doesn't sound like the victims neighbor's were all that neighborly. The statement "We didn't think they belonged in a neighborhood like this" is one of the most crass things I have ever heard.

    Wow, I've got to agree on that; I know we don't know the whole story, but...wow.

    And as for the rocket-scientist criminal who left the firearm laying around so that the victim could get to it...priceless. Darwin Award, anyone?

    Sounds to me like it mighta been a dope dealer getting robbed by people looking for money or drugs or both,Here in South Texas they have home invasion robberies in upscale neighborhoods all the time and they usually end up finding large quantity's of drugs at the location

    Yes, it could be...or it could just be a guy who works the night shift and is of a sour disposition. I'll wait and see....

    Yup, leaving a gun unattended sounds like a mistake brought on by the lack of oxygen to the brain. Fortunately, the victim was able to properly oxygenate the perp's brain!

    All too often the facts come out long after the media first sparks our interest. His neighbors? Naww... have you ever lived in NYC? Most people don't know their neighbors and are prone to make snap judgments and have suspicions about anyone who doesn't look or act like they do. It's a self-preservation issue. As you said - we'll see.
