Would-be robber shot dead by victim (CCW Holder!)
ABC ^ | 10/12/2009 | Staff

Posted on 10/12/2009 3:51:47 PM PDT by Red in Blue PA

A would-be robber is dead after one of his alleged victims fights back. It happened on North Street in Philadelphia's West Oak Lane section early Sunday morning. Investigators say it apparently never crossed the thief's mind that his victim just might be armed. Police say it was the man's third robbery of the night. He forced the victim up against a vehicle along the street and demanded money. That's when shots rang out - but not from the alleged robber. "'POW, POW, POW.' Real loud gunshots." Aaron Wisher was listening to the radio in his West Oak Lane home just after midnight when he heard a man on his cell phone quickly followed by seven or eight gunshots. Wisher tells Action News, "After that I heard somebody yelling. Like, you know, just like talkin' trash. Like, 'Yeah, somethin', somethin', he got 'em, he got 'em. And I peeked out my window and saw somebody laying in the street." He called 9-1-1 and police responded to investigate. As it turns out, the man who was being robbed had a license to carry a firearm, and shot the alleged robber. Police say at this time no charges are expected to be filed.

Another stupid one bites the dust. Crime should be declining with all these idiots trying this kind of thing.

The proper solution to armed robbery is a dead robber, on the scene. - Jeff Cooper

This is reminiscent of the best scene in Shatner’s TV show where “Denny CRane” is being robbed. Wish I had the link for the video of that scene. JUST classic.

Must be one of the guys that didn’t get the news that having a gun with you will not save your a**, according to the liberal point of view.

To: All

its great to hear the vic lives, but too bad for the perp. its very likely he died unforgiven, without faith in Christ & now has to face an eternity of punishment for his lawless heart, theft & robbery.

what does it profit a man if he gain the whole world but loses his soul, what will a man give in exchange for his soul ? Mark 8:36

For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. believe in Christ & his resurrection from the dead. Romans 6

11 For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all men, 12 instructing us to deny ungodliness and worldly desires and to live sensibly, righteously and godly in the present age, 13 looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus, 14 who gave Himself for us to redeem us from every lawless deed, and to purify for Himself a people for His own possession, zealous for good deeds. Titus 2


10 My son, if sinners entice you,
Do not consent.
11 If they say, “Come with us,
Let us lie in wait for blood,
Let us ambush the innocent without cause;
12 Let us swallow them alive like Sheol,
Even whole, as those who go down to the pit;
13 We will find all kinds of precious wealth,
We will fill our houses with spoil;
14 Throw in your lot with us,
We shall all have one purse,”
15 My son, do not walk in the way with them.
Keep your feet from their path,
16 For their feet run to evil
And they hasten to shed blood.
17 Indeed, it is useless to spread the baited net
In the sight of any bird;
18 But they lie in wait for their own blood;
They ambush their own lives.
19 So are the ways of everyone who gains by violence;
It takes away the life of its possessors.

Proverbs chapt 1 NAS.
