Wrong Place Wrong Time: Passerby Shot During Armed Robbery — Why I Carry

GLENDALE, ARIZONA — A man walking down the road happened to pass two armed robbers who were actively robbing two others.

The 27-year-old passerby was then shot at by the armed thugs, striking him. Thankfully, his injuries are considered non-life threatening. Immediately after the incident, the two cowardly thugs took off running.

This is one of those Why I Carry scenarios. I am not sure if any words were exchanged before the shooting, but I do know that anyone can happen upon something like this at anytime… anywhere.

It’s best to be prepared in my eyes, and that’s why I choose to arm myself.
