In a bizarre twist, the victim of a robbery in Cleveland, Ohio grabbed the gun from the robber and shot him dead. The criminal, Terrance Manning age 20 died from shortly after the robbery.
He served two years on robbery and weapons charges and was recently, August 21st, released from prison. Obviously, he hadn’t learned his lesson because he and three of his criminal friends tried to rob again.
Witnesses to the robbery said that the victim was walking toward his apartment when he was approached by four men wearing hooded sweatshirts. Police said one of the men pulled a gun and said, “You [know] what this is, get on the ground.” The robbery victim complied. The robbers took his apartment keys and other items from the victim, and then forced him to take them to his apartment.
As one of the suspects attempted to unlock the apartment door, he switched the gun from one hand to the other. This is when the victim grabbed the gun, and a struggle ensued between the victim and two of the suspects. Two of the suspects ran and the other two and the robbery victim struggled over the gun. The gun fired several times, striking one of the suspects.
Homicide detectives are investigating the incident. No charges had been filed and unfortunately the other suspects had not been caught. Police did not have a detailed description of the remaining suspects.
