The robber used a rock as a weapon. The victim used a gun.
A 51-year-old man had just made a cash withdrawal from an ATM, and began walking home with his son on a quiet Milwaukee street. That’s when he was suddenly hit in the head with a rock, knocking him to the ground. However, the victim immediately turned and fired a shot from his handgun. And as the attacker fled, he left several witnesses in his wake.
Sierra McFatridge told WISN-TV, “I was just outside getting my dog and then you just hear this shot, and I see (the victim) falling right in front of me. He was obviously following him from the bank because he knew he had money.” The robber escaped in a getaway car driven by a woman, however an alert neighbor gave police the license plate number. The victim was treated at a hospital, and is expected to make a full recovery.
