    GOOD: Man Tries To Rob Wrong Store - Indianapolis, IN

    Man fatally shot during robbery identified | IndyStar.com | The Indianapolis Star

    Police have identified the man who was fatally shot while trying to rob a Westside grocery Sunday night and the employee who shot him.

    Miguel Mondragon, 29, Indianapolis, shot Christopher Barreto, 23, also of Indianapolis, after Barreto reportedly pointed his gun at a woman with a baby, said Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Sgt. Matthew Mount.

    Barreto walked into El Michoacana Supermarket at 6240 W. 34th at 8:50 p.m. brandishing a handgun and herded all the customers into one part of the store, Mount said. When the robber pointed the gun at the woman and her child, Mondragon shot him, using a gun belonging to the store's owner.

    Barreto was taken to Wishard Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

    Police are calling the shooting justified, but evidence will be turned over to the Marion County prosecutor's office for a final determination, Mount said.

    Excellent work. Looks like the prosecutor will probably agree.

    Point a gun at a child in any store that I am in...and I'm going to shoot you...A LOT...as soon as (if) I get a chance.
    I always try to talk about being a good witness, but there is an instance that I will make an exception.

    Stay armed...keep away from the young children...stay safe!

    I saw this on the Indy channel 13 news yesterday morning. Congrats to Mr. Mondragon for protecting the child and mother.

    Apparently, the deceased scumbag has had a criminal record since he was 14 years old. Who would of thunk it?

    Is it my imagination, or do we have more of these happy ending stories that we had 3 months ago ?

    I was just thinking the same thing when I was reading another thread. I wondered if crime is up that much, more folks with SD/HD guns or both. Anyway I hope this publicity gives rise to a downward trend.

    The more this sort of thing happens, the more likely the punks will think twice before armed robbery. For far to long if caught it's probation or only a few months of hanging out with their friends in jail. Yep, ain't no fun when the rabbit got a gun!

    ...final determination?

    Are you kidding me? I'm w/retsup99.

    It is up to the DA to decide whether or not to bring charges, not the PD. Mount is just stating facts, it is not up to him to decide. I am sure that he can and probably will make a recommendation though.
