CCWer shoots armed robber, 11/27/12 [View all]



Hialeah police said a man approached a fruit vendor, took out a gun and asked for money. That's when a third person at the scene took out his own gun and shot the suspect.

Police sifting through the evidence on scene, including this weapon that landed near a pineapple say the thief ended up critically hurt.


The family of the person who allegedly shot the thief says he's a retired 68-year-old man who brings tamales to sell at the stand as a way to stay busy.

The alleged shooter's daughter told NBC 6, he was attacked and he had to defend himself or he would've been killed. She said her father has a permit to carry a gun.

Once again a CCWer uses his lawfully carried gun against a violent thug in the act of a violent crime. No innocent bystanders gunned down. No spray fire endangering hordes of babies and really old folks. Just a few bullets carefully planted in the body of the armed robber and the robbery is over.
