    Police: Robber shot by would-be victim
    By TERRI SANGINITI • The News Journal • November 25, 2008

    An armed robber who tried to stick up a New Castle area man was shot himself when his would-be victim pulled out his own gun and fired at him.


    The gunshot victim later reported to police that he was shot during a robbery that went awry.

    New Castle County police spokesman Cpl. Trinidad Navarro said the holdup happened at 5:45 p.m. Monday in the first block of Chesterfield Drive in Garfield Park.

    A 37-year-old man told officers that he was taking items out of his car when two men walked up to him and stuck an object in his side and attempted to rob him.

    The victim said he thought the assailants were going to shoot him, so he pulled out his own 9 mm handgun and fired one round at the suspects.

    Navarro said the man was not sure if he hit either of the assailants, although he did hear a loud moaning sound after he fired the shot.

    The two would-be robbers ran off in the direction of Bizarre Drive.

    While officers were on their way to the first call about the robbery, a second call came in about an 18-year-old man with a gunshot wound to his upper chest.

    The shooting victim told the officers he was shot by a group of men who tried to rob him on Briarcliff Drive.

    He was admitted to Christiana Hospital in stable condition.

    Officers investigating the first case on Chesterfield Road recovered the gun from the victim and are holding it as evidence.

    The shooting and attempted robbery remain under investigation.

    No charges have been filed pending the outcome of the investigation.

    Anyone with information about this case is asked to call Detective Thomas Abram at 395-8110 or Delaware Crime Stoppers at (800) TIP-3333.

    It's a good story but the ending kind of sucks, it looks like they don't know what really happened and charges aren't being filed yet for the victim OR the perps...especially the comment about how they are holding the victims gun as "evidence" sounds a little negative also.

    They usually won't formally charge or arrest the perp if he's in the hospital, because then the state is responsible for his medical bills.

    Imagine that, a thug that lies. For some reason, crooks dont like it when we shoot back.

    Why doesn't these stories make it to the Main Stream Media ??? {/irony}
    The first rule of a gunfight: "Don't be there !"
    The second rule: "Bring enough gun"

    What's up with calling the perp a "victim"? You don't want to get shot? Don't rob people.

    Yes his robbery went awry. The gun must be analyzed for ballistics to match with the one they hopefully got out of the bad guy.
