Neighbors cheer Ohio CHL-holder for fighting back during attempted robbery

Cincinnati's CBS affliate, WKRC, is reporting that "a neighborhood beaten down by crime in the last two weeks is cheering one of its own for fighting back."

From the story:

Three masked men tried to rob a man on Rosemont Avenue in West Price Hill Monday night. But the trio didn't know their victim had a concealed carry permit- and was prepared to shoot.

Troy Hammond and Tremaine Hughes are charged with aggravated armed robbery. Officers say they were both shot at during the incident -- but they are not the real victims.

Police say Hammond, Hughes, and another man jumped the victim, whose name has not been released. The victim has a concealed carry permit -- and fired a shot, hitting one suspect. That suspect is still in the hospital.
