A robber approached a gentleman in a Jackson, Mississippi parking lot on June 20, pointed a gun at him and said, “Betcha ain’t got one of these.”
The would-be victim pulled a gun and shot the suspect.
According to MS News Now, the suspect approached the man and feigned an interest in cigarettes. When the would-be victim said he didn’t have any cigarettes, the suspect “began to walk away, turned and said, ‘betcha ain’t got one of these,’ pointing a gun at the [would-be] victim.”
However, the would-be victim was carrying a gun for self-defense and he responded to the threat by shooting the suspect in the chest.
The suspect left the scene “and was later picked up by ambulance the Pines apartments” on Watkins Drive.
The would-be victim “is not facing any charges.”
