A concealed carrier in Hartford, Alabama saved himself and his wife from a group of armed robbers over the weekend.

The couple was returning to their home on Friday night when they were approached by a group of armed men.

The husband, fearing for their safety, drew a firearm and opened fire on the men.

One of the suspects was shot in the nose.

The suspect suffered from non life threatening injuries and is being treated an area hospital.

The husband is not facing any charges and authorities have already ruled the incident a clear cut case of self defense.

There is no word on the status of the other robbery suspects available at this time.

This incident is the one of the most common types of defensive gun uses. That is, one in which no one was killed. Despite this being one of the most common types of defensive gun uses, these incidents are often not included in statistics about defensive gun uses. Many of these statistics and studies focus solely on justifiable homicides, which represent only a fraction of total defensive gun uses.

This is the 34th defensive gun use we’ve documented in the state of Alabama and the 1,346th defensive gun use we’ve documented overall.
