Armed Thug Gets Shot after Picking on the Wrong 'Victim' - a Concealed Carrier
Virginia Second Amendment patriot turns the tables on crook
An armed thug ended up getting the shock of his life after he tried to rob a Second Amendment patriot with a concealed carry.
The Virginia man was attacked while using an ATM but quickly turned the tables on the crook.
The criminal almost immediately realized his mistake when the "victim" exercised his constitutional rights and drew his weapon, quickly putting the thug down.
What's more, the desperate first call to 911 was made by the failed robber himself, who pleaded with authorities to rush to the scene and save his life, according to police.
The 2A patriot was holding his cash in his hand at the Bank of America ATM in the 10300 block of Courthouse Road in Spotsylvania when the suspect approached in a "threatening" manner, Spotsylvania County Sheriff's Maj. Troy Skebo told the Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star.
The attacker was armed and hit the victim several times, Skebo revealed.
Acting in self-defense, the man — a concealed weapon permit holder — pulled out his gun and fired several shots at the mugger, Skebo told the paper.
The suspect then attempted to flee the scene and made it across the road, the Free Lance-Star reported.
He then called 911 and complained about being shot at while at the ATM.
But when authorities arrived on the scene, they determined that the 911 caller matched the description of the robbery suspect at the ATM.
After being treated for his injuries, the crook was taken into custody and sent straight to jail, Skebo told the paper.
Thankfully, the victim suffered only minor injuries during the incident, the Free Lance-Star reported.
Police identified the suspect 24-year-old Trey Khiry Turner.
Turned was charged with attempted robbery and placed in the Rappahannock Regional Jail under no bond, the paper reported.
Court records indicate Turner was convicted of attempted robbery and using a firearm in the commission of a felony in connection with a 2016 incident in Spotsylvania.
He was ordered to serve three years in prison, the Free Lance-Star reported.
Of course, there was no charge for the "victim" who legally exercised his rights as an American citizen to defend himself.
