    Victim Shoots And Kills Robbery Suspect - News Story - WFTV Orlando
    Friday, January 9, 2009

    ORANGE cOUNTY, Fla. -- Orange County Sheriff’s Deputies said two men with a sawed off shot gun tried to rob a man at a car wash on Orange Blossom trail Friday night. The suspects didn’t bet on the victim pulling out his own gun and shooting.
    One of the suspects was hit in the chest. He was rushed to the hospital, where he later died. Investigators said the victim had a concealed weapons permit.
    “For the bad guys out there, you never know who you’re dealing with when you go and commit this crime. You might be the one who is laying in the parking lot dead because you went up to someone who is legally protecting himself,” said Cmdr. Spike Hopkins of the Orange County Sheriff’s office.
    Deputies are trying to figure out if the two suspects are the same two men who have been robbing people on Orange Blossom Trail in the last week.
    There have been five other similar incidents. They were all within one mile of this car wash. That second suspect is still on the run.

    Full story in the paper today. It just doesn't get any better than this. CCW holder and clearly attacked by 2 armed thugs while washing his car before 7pm.

    Good job on the defense. Shotguns are dangerous to go up against. I hope he got the gunner and that weapon is off the street.
    But if you are authorized to carry a weapon, and you walk outside without it, just take a deep breath, and say this to yourself...

    Sniff......sniff......

    I just love a happy ending.
    That's two in this area this week. Think the goons are going to catch on? Somehow I doubt it......

    Refreshing to see a high ranking LEO that not only gets it, but is willing to say so in public.

    Police: Man Shoots, Kills Armed Robber At Car Wash - Orlando News Story - WESH Orlando

    ORLANDO, Fla. -- A car wash customer in Orange County shot and killed a man he said was trying to rob him on Friday.

    The shooting happened at Mr. Big's Super Car Wash off Orange Blossom Trail.

    "During this attempted robbery, the victim, who holds a concealed weapons permit, pulled out his weapon and fired shots into the bad guy," said Orange County Sheriff's Office Commander Paul Hopkins.

    The alleged robber was shot in a car wash stall. He ran about 50 feet and fell near some orange cones.

    Hopkins said the shooter was washing his car when two men approached him. He said one had a sawed-off shotgun.

    Hopkins said that modus operandi fits a series of recent holdups.

    "We've responded to about five robberies in the last week where these have been similar types of events, the sawed-off shotguns," Hopkins said.

    Hopkins said the most recent shooting at the car wash appears to be similar to an incident in Ocoee, where a man shot a robber who was beating a store clerk.

    "For the bad guys out there, you never know who you're dealing with," Hopkins said. "When you go out to commit this crime, you might be the one who's lying dead in the parking lot."

    Investigators said there were two suspects. One died in the parking lot and the other is still on the run.

    OBT is just a crap hole. I guess if you're a porn freak you might go there but other than that theres no reason to go there as its a crap hole.

    Funny the other story Ocoee isnt any better IMO.

    That whole area is becoming a huge hole....
