Robber shot dead by would-be victim outside Ft. Worth store
A would-be robber was shot dead by a person with a concealed handgun license outside a Metro PCS store in Ft. Worth on Tuesday afternoon.Like most DGC news stories, this one is woefully short on details. The above information is a full half of the article. There's a video, too, but there's not even that much more info. Looks like one of the guns used was a 5-shot revolver; given that it's close to a vehicle, I'd wager it's the one used by the good guy here, but that's just guesswork on my part.
The suspect reportedly tried to rob a man in the parking lot outside the store.
There was one interesting part, though:
The man with the CHL was shot in the arm and the hand by the robber, but the robber was shot multiple times in the chest.More than likely, the bad guy got the drop on the good guy. It's unlikely he'd try to rob him without the firearm out and at the ready. So more than likely the good guy drew and fired, and either the bad guy got off a shot or two while he was drawing, or he pulled the trigger as he went down and one or two of his shots hit the good guy. In any case, multiple shots to the chest beats one or two to the extremities (it's also possible a single shot went through the hand into the arm).
A definite win for the good guys here.
