A 76-year-old man was working late in an Everett, Washington real estate office when a man broke in. The worker drew his gun and held the man at gunpoint while he called the police.
Criminals are never all that bright so while the man was holding him at gunpoint, the rocket scientist of a robber started throwing office equipment at the worker and trying to run away. Our friendly neighborhood criminal did manage to get away - after he was shot in the leg.
The police arrived, searched the area and found him lying on the ground in a nearby backyard... gun shot wounds will do that to you.
