According to Miami-Dade police, when an armed robber attempted to hold up a man at gunpoint, the would-be victim first attempted to flee. It was only after the thief began firing at him that the man pulled out his own gun and returned fire.
The outcome of this scenario highlights the importance of training for anyone wishing to lawfully carry a firearm for self-defense. Police say that the armed citizen is fine; however, the same cannot be said of the thief. He sustained several gunshot wounds and was taken to an area trauma center, where he was listed in stable condition and is expected to soon face charges.
