The Armed Citizen® December 30, 2019

Trying to sell expensive hair extensions, a 23-year-old drove his car behind an apartment complex Sept. 18, after being led there by two potential buyers. An unknown man allegedly leaped through the driver’s side window, forced a handgun into the driver’s stomach and demanded property. In response, the armed citizen pulled his firearm and fired three shots at his assailant, fatally striking the would-be robber. The armed citizen turned himself in at the Clifton Heights Police Department. After a review, the district attorney’s office determined the armed citizen had acted in self-defense.
