A trio of robbers, at least one of whom was armed with a gun, attempted to con their way into a home in Slidell, La. One of the thieves approached the home and told the owner that he was having car trouble and asked to use the phone. When the homeowner refused, another thief confronted the homeowner armed with a gun. The homeowner responded to the threat by drawing a handgun and firing at the criminals, causing both to flee to a waiting getaway vehicle.
Police tracked down the robbers a short time later. (St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office, St. Tammany Parish, La. 01/25/16)
