Two Would-Be Robbers No Match for Homeowner and His Gun

Not everyone made it out alive.

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) -- Fort Wayne police say a man fatally shot a man who tried to rob him outside his home.

Police say the intended victim was standing on or near his porch Saturday night when he was approached by two men who tried to rob him. However, the man was armed with a handgun and fired several rounds, striking one of the would-be robbers several times while the second fled on foot.

The intended victim called police immediately to report the exchange of gunfire. He was shot in the foot and was in good condition Sunday at a hospital.

Police said the robber who was shot was pronounced dead at the scene and that a weapon was recovered near his body.

Police didn't release the names of the men who were shot.
