Minnesota Resident Stops Armed Robber With Gun

posted on February 25, 2016

The holder of a concealed-carry permit in Brooklyn Park, Minn., proved a poor target for an armed would-be robber. According to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, the suspect and intended victim exchanged gunfire; the suspect was fatally wounded, while there was no report of the armed citizen having been injured. 

Police confirmed being familiar with the deceased suspect “from previous contact,” without explaining in detail. State Rep. Pat Garofalo, R-Farmington, responded to the incident: “A loss of life is a tragedy. But when a criminal pulls a gun, they risk ending their life. Concealed carry works.”
