Around the evening of December 16th, 2012, John Doe (not his real name) was selling a cell phone to someone when he was robbed of his wallet and the cell phone. John Doe shot the robber as he turned to run away.
Mauldin, South Carolina police Detective Ford said “Obviously he did try to protect his property and himself. And it worked out OK because we caught the bad guy, and the victim he’s shaken up for what he did. He’s shaken up, it wasn’t intentional or anything, he was just trying to protect himself.”
The robber drove away and crashed into a store. The police found him on the ground behind a store where he was arrested and taken to a hospital.
