[Video] Concealed Carrying Woman Opens Fire on Armed Robber in Milwaukee
|Incident at a Glance|
|# of Suspects:||1||Shots Fired:||Multiple|
A concealed carrying woman in Wisconsin got into a shootout with an armed robber this week and sent him running.
According to local ABC affiliate WISN:
A Milwaukee woman fought back against a would-be robber Thursday afternoon.
When he pulled a gun, she pulled out hers and opened fire.
Officers at District 4 are looking for a man who tried to rob the 36-year-old woman near 80th Street and Green Tree Road.
Both parties fired multiple shots and it’s unclear if the suspect was hit by gunfire or not. We do not know the make and model of the firearm used in this incident. No description of the suspect is 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 actually shot. 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.
