Late on Thursday evening, April 30, in Baton Rouge, La., three armed teens attacked a 26-year-old man in a robbery attempt, police say.
The intended victim was also armed and defended himself, leading to a shootout between the 26-year-old and the teens. One of the suspected robbers, an 18-year-old male, was shot by the 26-year-old and died at the scene. The victim of the robbery was also wounded in the shootout.
The two other assailants, one 18-year-old male and one 17-year-old male, were booked in East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on charges of attempted first-degree murder and principal to first-degree murder. (The Advocate, Baton Rouge, La., 05/01/2020) From the Armed Citizen® Archives July 1965 Two men, acting strangely, entered the North Nashville, Tenn., grocery store of Wayne C. Garner and ordered cigarettes. Garner placed the cigarettes on the counter with one hand and grasped a 38-cal. revolver under the counter with the other.
When one of the thugs drew a .45-cal. automatic out of his pocket, Garner quickly raised his gun and fired. The gun-wielding bandit fell dead, and his companion fled. (The Nashville Tennessean, Nashville, Tenn.)
