Morris Brown had just dropped off a friend at an apartment when two
men stopped him and asked for drugs, said police. When Brown replied
that he had no drugs, the men announced they were robbing him. A
third man approached from behind and grabbed Brown while the other
two started beating him. The men stole Brown's keys, cell phone and
wallet and started to walk away. Brown probably would have let them
have his property in exchange for his life, but then the man who had
approached Brown from behind pointed a handgun at him. Brown, who
has a concealed-carry permit, drew his pistol and shot two of his
assailants. One man died at the hospital. The man who pointed a gun
at Brown fled the scene when the shooting started. It was unclear if
he was injured.
