Armed robbery turns into a gunfight (New Mexico)

It was just after 8:30 Friday night when a man in a grey hoodie entered the PDQ gas station in Albuquerque, New Mexico. As the man approached the counter he drew his gun and demanded money.

At that point the clerk drew his firearm and started shooting. A neighbor said she heard five or six shots as the two men exchanged gunfire. The clerk was unharmed and police are not certain if the robber was stuck.

The robber fled the scene and police are looking for the suspect.

Not at all. When I first started really looking for defensive gun use stories, I had absolutely no idea how often they get targeted.

I'm really impressed by how often they fight back - and win.

As we know both intuitively and from research, criminal are bullies. Confront them with force and they almost always run (unless your aim is good... then they don't run far).
