Folks in Atlanta are marginally safer today according to a link sent to us by Bubblehead Ray from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution which reports that an intended victim there thwarted two men who tried to rob him;
Police were alerted to the shooting about 10:30 p.m. Monday when a deceased male was dropped off by a private citizen at Grady Memorial Hospital, Atlanta police spokeswoman Kim Jones said.
“At the same time, Zone 6 officers responded to an attempted robbery at 20 Jackson St.,” Jones said in an e-mail.
“The investigation revealed that the deceased male and another male attempted to rob a subject,” Jones said. “The intended victim pulled his own weapon to defend himself and shot one of the would-be robbers.”
So, the guy who took the poor soul who was ventilated by the not-so-victim to the hospital was also arrested. Two down in Atlanta.
