    GOOD: Man fatally shoots would-be mugger

    Man fatally shoots would-be mugger
    YAKIMA, Wash. (AP) - A man was shot to death outside a residence in Yakima and police believe it was a justifiable homicide by a man being mugged.

    Police responded to a report of shots fired Monday night and found one man, Michael Valadez, with head and arm injuries, and another man, Franklin McWain, fatally wounded.

    Valadez says he was outside the residence to pick up a friend when the other man struck him in the head with a stick and demanded his money. Valadez, who has a concealed weapons permit, shot McWain at least twice.

    Police found a broken stick that was apparently used in the attack. Valadez suffered a broken arm.

    Police say McWain had a criminal record of six felony convictions and 27 misdemeanor convictions.

    Well it looks like they can close his rap sheet now! Good for Mr. Valadez for being armed and protecting himself.

    I am considering Mr. Valadez sustained a broken arm, a head njury, the attack was severe enough to break the attacker's stick ... and he still gave effective fire!
