A man with a legally concealed weapon took matters into his own hands and shot a violent criminal attempting to rob him.
Criminal Felipe Orozco and his two accomplices had been terrorizing and robbing Detroit restaurants and food trucks in the Mexicantown neighborhood. Their luck ran out after attempting to rob the Happy Bar restaurant, according to Fox 2 News.
Orozco shot the unnamed owner of the Happy Bar in the leg during an attempted robbery. But Orozco got the surprise of his life when the bar owner pulled out his own gun and shot back, which resulted in severe injuries. (RELATED: Thug Shot And Killed During Attempted Robbery)
Orozco’s two accomplices dropped him off at Detroit Receiving Hospital after seeing his grave condition from the gunshot wounds. Police were able to track down one of the accomplices after a hospital security guard got the car’s license plate number. The third accomplice remains at large.
Alfredo Fuentes of the El Parian food trucks was robbed three times by Orozco and his criminal friends, according to Fox 2. (RELATED: Armed Citizen Shoots And Kills Waffle House Robber)
“He just wanted the money. The guy came with a gun and told him to go inside. He asked for the money [they] gave him the box, he grabbed money and left,” Fuentes told Fox News 2.
