A robber came up behind a man out for a walk in Hazelwood, Mo., threatened him with a handgun and demanded money. The walker, a Right-to-Carry permit holder, turned over his wallet, but as the thief rifled through it, drew his own .40-caliber pistol. The permit holder ordered the criminal to drop his weapon and get on the ground, but the thief instead raised his gun, at which point the permit holder shot and killed him.
Hazelwood Police Chief Carl Wolf made it clear to the local media that the shooting was justified.
