Armed suspect with extensive criminal history fatally shot by victim during attempted robbery


A would-be victim fought back against three armed and much younger assailants when the trio attempted to rob him outside of his Allentown, Pennsylvania, home last Wednesday night, local media reported.

According to several witnesses and the victim, whose identity has remained private, he had just returned home about 10:40 p.m. and as he was getting out of his car he was jumped by three young men wearing hoodies.

Witnesses say it appeared that the suspects were in their teens, but later discovered that they were much older.

The young men began assaulting the victim, who is in his 50s, and pistol whipping him as they attempted to rob him, but when the man pulled out his own gun one of the suspects began firing at him. The victim was not struck but returned fire, hitting one of the suspects as the other two ran away leaving their injured accomplice behind.
