    Man Uses Would-Be Robber's Gun To Defend Himself
    SOUTHWEST MIAMI-DADE (CBS4) ―

    Miami-Dade Police say a resident turned the tables on three home invaders who tried to rob him in Southwest Miami-Dade Monday night.

    Out of the three armed men that tried robbing the man, police say one ended up hurt and was dropped off by the other two accomplices at Jackson South Hospital.

    They say three Latin males with thin builds attempted to rob the man at Southwest 152nd Street and 93rd Avenue, but they got into a struggle with him instead. The victim was somehow able to get the gun and shot at one of the would-be robbers, critically injuring him.

    Police say they fled in a blue or green Chevrolet Astro van, which they used to drop off the injured man at the hospital before taking off.

    The man in the house only suffered a bump to his head.

    Police are looking for the other two men involved.

    If this is what they mean by "your own gun being used against you," I can't say I'm against it

    Just think what the score could have been if the home owner had his own gun.
    Homeowner-3
    3 Amigo's-0
