INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA — Indianapolis police are describing it as a botched robbery, but one gunowner is likely thankful that he remembered to carry his handgun.

Around noon, the victim was attempting to fill up his gas tank at a local gas station when a robber attempted to take his possessions and threaten him. He wrestled with the robber and it was then that the robber’s getaway driver kicked his car into gear and hit the victim from behind. The victim drew his handgun and opened fire on the vehicle, hitting one of the passengers in the getaway car.

Police reported to FOX 59 that the crew took their accomplice to a nearby hospital for medical treatment and a number of them were apprehended by police at the scene.

Onlookers recall seeing the event unfold and at first being frightened but ultimately siding with the victim in how he dealt with the situation.
