Concealed handgun saves the day in Aurora, CO.
Three white males were moving into an apartment in Aurora, CO. As they were carrying their stuff into the apartment, they were attacked by three armed black males. According to the census the neighborhood in 25% black, 34% white, and 33% Hispanics.
Fortunately one of the victims had a concealed handgun and shot all three attackers. One of the perps died.
Nothing says “welcome to the neighborhood” quite like being ambushed by your new neighbors as you’re carrying your heavy belongings up flights of stairs. Luckily for one Colorado man, he packed more than just his pots and pans.
Late Saturday night, three white guys moving into an apartment in the seedy Denver suburb of Aurora were robbed by three black men in the foyer of the building. Stuck in the small 10 ft by 6 ft corridor, two of the victims started handing over their cash to the thugs described to be between the ages of 16 to 20. But the third mover reached into his pocket to pull out something better — his loaded firearm.
He fired off several rounds at all three thieves, hitting each one. One hoodrat ran away, with a gunshot wound to the shoulder, and checked himself into a nearby hospital. In the meantime, emergency responders arrived on the scene to pick up the other injured suspects, but one died en route. The third is considered to be in serious condition but is expected to make a full recovery. The male that took himself to the hospital was later arrested on unrelated charges.
The gun owner’s firearm was taken into police possession, as a standard practice in investigation, but the mover is not expected to face any charges. In fact, Arapahoe County District Attorney George Brauchler called what the man did a common sense approach in a robbery situation, and he’s right.
“I don’t think we would call this necessarily a make-my-day issue,” Brauchler said in a press conference. “This is straight up, regular, common sense and statutorily codified self-defense.”
