Armed Jogger Shoots Robbery Suspect In Texas

posted on February 24, 2017

Giving new meaning to the adage, “You can run, but you can’t hide,” a jogger in Texas took down a would-be robber and left him injured in a very tender spot.

Arlington police told CBS DFW that a man jogging to the gym noticed a truck following close behind. Suddenly a young man darted from the truck, pulled a gun and demanded money. However, the runner was carrying his own concealed weapon, and he drew his gun and fired at the robber several times—hitting the suspect in the groin. The suspect ran back to the truck and sped away. 

Investigators quickly found the truck abandoned and determined it had been stolen, while also getting tips that the suspect had gotten into an SUV driven by a woman. When detectives pulled over the SUV, the teenage suspect in the passenger seat immediately surrendered, telling police “I’ve been shot.” The suspect was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.
