Washington State Armed Robber Picks The Wrong Victims

posted on October 11, 2016

Two men were sitting in a car in the parking lot of a Tacoma, Wash., burger restaurant Friday evening when an armed man walked up and robbed them at gunpoint, KIRO-TV reports

According to witnesses, one of the men in the car then used his legally owned firearm to shoot the 26-year-old robber. A friend of the suspect drove him to Tacoma General Hospital, where police say he was pronounced dead. 

“People do have the right to defend themselves, they do have a right to legally carry firearms, and in this case, this person did.” Tacoma Police Office Loretta Cool said. An unnamed man who lives near the restaurant agreed: “If you’re going to rob somebody, maybe you should think twice.”
