A man pumping gas in central Phoenix shot and killed an alleged armed robber about 6:30 p.m. Saturday.

3TV/CBS 5 reported that a man was pumping gas into his vehicle “at a Sinclair gas station near 12th Street and Highland Avenue” when 24-year-old Aaron Duwan Frazier, Jr., allegedly approached and pulled a gun.

The man pumping gas responded by reaching into his vehicle, grabbing a gun, and firing numerous shots at Frazier.

12 News noted that police were called and officers arrived on scene to find Frazier “suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.”

Frazier was transported to a hospital, where he died.

Breitbart News pointed out that the occupant of a residence in El Mirage, Arizona, shot and killed an alleged home intruder Saturday evening as well.
