    GOOD: Elderly Victim Shoots Would-Be Robber - Dayton, OH

    Elderly victim shoots would-be robber, 24, police say

    DAYTON — A 24-year-old man who allegedly got out of his car and tried to rob an elderly man at gunpoint was shot by the would-be victim, who was licensed to carry a concealed weapon and fired to defend himself, police said.

    The younger man was shot twice on Saturday, Sept. 19, and was taken to Miami Valley Hospital, where he was under guard, Dayton police Sgt. Damon Castor said. The gunshot injuries were not believed to be life-threatening, Castor said.

    “Apparently he was trying to rob the older gentleman of something,” Castor said of the younger man. “He picked on the wrong person.”

    The would-be victim, in his 70s, was not injured, Castor said. The confrontation took place at West Third Street and Brooklyn Avenue in west Dayton, police said.

    It was not clear whether the alleged attacker was trying to steal the older man’s car or money, Castor said.

    No charges had been filed Saturday. Police are investigating.

    Dayton sounds like a bad place for BG's to be this week...nice defense by the elderly victim...

    Man, this is a repost too, although the original is posted in 2nd Amendment and gun legislation forum. My DC Google-Fu is weak today.

    Extremely well done. Let's hear it for wily geezers.
    Sig 226, 228. Glock 19, 23. Smith Model 60,and 1911. XD45 Tactical. Mossberg 930 SPX.

    How we behave as gun owners is important. Posturing and threatening does not serve us well in the public eye.

    The west side of Dayton was a bad place forty years ago. Hate to think what it would be like today.

    Good news like this is worth reposting.
