Robber Shot And Killed By Intended Victim

Criminals should start asking themselves whether the crime they’re about to commit is worth losing their life. As we continue to see in these Armed Citizen stories, many end up paying the ultimate price—just as Jose Lopez did Saturday in Dallas.

The 27-year-old was shot and killed by his intended victim in the wee morning hours as Lopez and two others were attempting to commit robbery. The victim was armed and fired upon Lopez, sending him to UT Southwestern Medical Center, where he later died.

Police questioned the other two suspects and the victim, as well as witnesses on the scene. All accounts were consistent with evidence, and both the intended victim and other suspects were released. The case is being referred to a Dallas County grand jury.
