Another business owner with concealed handgun license defends self from armed robbers

WKYC (NBC Cleveland) is reporting that when two men tried to rob the owner of Advanced Iron & Metal on Quincy Avenue just before 11 a.m. Friday, they got more than they bargained for.

From the news report:

A Channel 3 News crew was there and the owner told them that two men tried to rob him. He said one man had a gun and fired several shots at him, grazing him in the stomach.

Then the owner pulled out his own gun and fired at the suspects, striking one suspect in the leg twice.

That suspect ran from the scrapyard but was caught by police at East 69th Street and Quincy Avenue as they were enroute to the scrapyard.

Police and EMS arrived on the scene and police took the second suspect into custody.

The owner, who told Channel 3 that he had a concealed carry permit, was grazed by the shot the suspect fired but he was treated at the scene.

Police say the suspect who was shot twice by the owner was taken to MetroHealth Medical Center.

Both suspects are under arrest, police said.
