A pair of armed criminals attempted to rob 71-year-old Donald Miller outside his house in Buffalo, N.Y. After one of the robbers threatened him with a gun, Miller, who is an ex-police officer and carry permit holder, drew a firearm and shot one of the criminals, causing both to flee. The wounded robber did not get far, collapsing a short distance from the home.
Miller’s neighbors are supportive of his actions, with one remarking, “It’s about time it got turned around,” and another stating, “Don is an asset to the neighborhood. He gives us a sense of security living here.” When addressing the local media, Miller’s attorney noted that, "[The police] believe it is a legitimate use of deadly force, in the face of a robbery, and that no charges are pending from buffalo PD."
