COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A central Ohio man told police that he pulled his gun and shot a robber who had just held him up at gunpoint.
Columbus police said 34-year-old Kelby Smith was robbed at gunpoint Monday night while with his 2-month-old son. Smith said the robber pointed a gun at his head as he bent down to shield the car carrier holding his infant son.
After Smith handed over some money, the robber fled and pointed the gun back at them. Smith — who has a concealed-carry permit — said that's when he pulled his gun and shot the suspect.
The robber got away, but a short time later an injured man showed up at a hospital matching the description of the suspect. He later underwent surgery.
No charges have been filed.
