The Uptown robbers struck again Tuesday night, only this time their victim was armed, police say.
Edward Curtis, 61, who described himself to police as an ex-Marine, fired several shots at a group of men who attacked him as he got out of his car near his apartment, according to police records. Curtis thinks he may have struck one of the men, said Minneapolis Police Lt. Mike Fossum.
"He had just parked his car in the parking lot," said Fossum. "These guys blitzed him. They just started kicking his ass. He managed to get off three rounds."
The suspects, one a heavyset Hispanic man and another a thinner Hispanic man, ran off but may have been injured, police said.

Illegals doing the jobs American gangs won’t do?
That’s the way it’s been going, recently...
Fossum urged witnesses to call 911 if they see people fighting on the street.
....and be sure to carry a whistle.
since we seem to be reliving the 70’s in every possible way, seems about time for Death Wish VI to come out....
This fellow would be a former Marine - the old saw, you don't join the Marines, you BECOME one.
Three rounds and nobody is in the ER? Or morgue?
Had any been hit and killed we’d learn “they were just getting their lives turned around...” or were on the way to Bible study when they got lost and accosted by an angry teaparty man.
damn shame he didn’t kill them all.
Well, it sounds like he was lucky to get the gun out at all....
OH, don’t get me wrong, Murtha was a full up SOB and was an EX-Marine loooong before he was DRT.
Needs to go to the range a little more often...think of the great opportunity he had to “off” several vermin at once!
A motto I have heard: “Kill them all, let God sort them out! Sounds good to me!
He was beaten pretty badly before he got the first round off. Another local news source is quoting his family as saying that he may require surgery.
This wasn’t a range time issue. It was do whatever to stop the attack.
“Meanwhile, people are on guard.
I carry a knife with me most of the time just because I dont like guns, said one young man who visits the area often and has not been frightened away.”
Yeah, that’ll work...
KSTP had the story tonight—of course they threw in what the MPLS and St.Paul chiefs of police had to say about the proposed ‘stand your ground’ law.
Couple of leftist idiots. The previous leftist idiot chiefs said the same crap prior to the ‘concealed carry’ passing in 2002.
