    Good(?): Victims shoots/kills would be robber

    Firstcoastnews.com | Jacksonville, St. Augustine and Brunswick | Possible Suspect Shot Dead by Victim of Robbery

    and

    Police: Arlington Man Fatally Shoots Robber - Jacksonville News Story - WJXT Jacksonville

    The reason I added a question mark is that the article is very brief and its hard to tell what exactly happened. But so far, no charges have been filed indicating that the responding officer considered it probably a justified shooting.

    So far it looks like 2 attackers, at least one of which had a gun, and one "almost victim" (sorry... typo in subject).

    One dead in Arlington apartment complex; shooter possible victim of robbery attempt

    Jacksonville police are on the scene of a fatal shooting at an Arlington apartment complex.

    Police were called to the Summer Oaks Apartments at 5350 Arlington Expressway shortly before midnight and found a man dead in the parking lot. Police said initial reports are that the unidentified man tried to rob another man, who then shot him.

    However, police are still interviewing the unidentified shooter and other witnesses before concluding what occurred, Sgt. Dan Janson told the Times-Union this morning.

    Read jacksonville.com and Tuesday’s Times-Union for updates.

    Sometimes things aren't always as they seem so they must investigate,worst case scenario is BG shoots robbery victim then turns around and trys to say victim was robbing him which in some cases the guy might get away with

    certainly so. I would hope each shooting is carefully investigated and they don't just take the word of the victim. All of Jacksonville is more or less an unregulated warzone. The mayor prouds himself of running the cheapest city around, leaving it up to the citizens to defend themselves. This has been in the "not so good" part of town and shootings are regular. I am not surprised that citizens shoot first and call 911 later.

    Orlando and Jax are quickly becoming competitive with Miami in terms of violence...not a nice place at night. We sometimes go there for 'shows' (David Copperfield was the last trip...)...we only 'flow' with the crowds...not a safe place to stop for a walk along the water...

    Stay armed...you can in FL...stay safe!

    Gun control can be blamed in part for allowing 9/11 to happen.

    Agreed. I often run the riverwalk and downtown bridges well after dark in the summertime...the homeless seem to flock there. You'd think the city would make an effort to clean it up since the area's supposed to be one of the main highlights of the city. Thank God for my goofy looking fanny pack and "run gun"
