BAKERSFIELD, Calif- A would-be robber met his demise at the hands of the armed resident, whose house he and another suspect broke into on Sunday night.
KGET reported that police responded to an armed robbery call just after 11 p.m. Sunday at a home on University Avenue between Rally Street and Redlands Drive.
When police arrived, they found a dead man with a gunshot wound inside the house.
Upon further investigation, law enforcement found out the dead man was one of two robbers who had entered the home. The second suspect left the scene and is still at large.
The Bakersfield Police Department told KGET that the resident who killed the would-be robber was not arrested and has cooperated with them.
No charges are expected for the homeowner at this time.
It is undoubtedly good to see law-abiding citizens in the notoriously pro-gun control state of California defend themselves against the criminal element. Earlier this week, we reported to you about a Los Angeles man who shot and killed a knife-wielding man who charged him in the front yard of his house.
One would think that leftist California Governor Gavin Newsom would look at these incidents and consider loosening some red tape that discourages residents from using their Second Amendment rights.
We are not holding our breath, however. By all appearances, Newsom has his eyes cast upon entering the national political stage, which means appealing to the Democratic Party base.
