The tables were turned on two teenage thugs in a Dayton, Ohio, alley
one night in June when they targeted a man licensed to carry a
firearm. They approached Mark Hill, and one of the men shoved him.
When Hill turned around, they both flashed handguns, according to
the police report. Hill backed away, hands outstretched, then pulled
out a Glock 23 and fired, hitting one of the gunmen several times.
Both men ran off. Shortly thereafter, two 16-year-olds accompanied a
17-year-old to the Good Samaritan Hospital. The latter was admitted
with gunshot wounds to his leg, abdomen and arms. Hospital officials
notified police, who said all three matched the description of the
gunmen and another male he had seen during the robbery attempt. The
16-year-olds were arrested as they tried to leave the hospital, said
Dayton Police Sgt. Dennis Chaney. It was Dayton's first defensive
shooting by a holder of a concealed-carry permit, said Chaney.
