MyFox Dallas | Dog Walker Shoots Armed Teen Robber, Police Say

MyFox Dallas | Dog Walker Shoots Armed Teen Robber, Police Say Man is accosted by 4 youths. One is armed, and threatens him.

It started when he was just out walking his dog.
A group of teen robbers surrounded the man.

According to investigators, when a boy in the group pulled out a gun, the man, a licensed concealed handgun owner, fired shots.

The teen was apparently struck in the head and was listed in critical condition at Parkland Hospital. His weapon was recovered at the scene and later determined to be stolen during a separate offense in Terrell, according to police.
While the anti-gun crowd will count this as "a child tragically shot," I don't think it is tragic at all. That "child" was engaged in armed robbery when he was shot in legal self-defense.
