A Virginia man remained behind bars Tuesday after police said a concealed carrier he tried to rob at an ATM turned the tables and fired a gun at him, the Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star reported.
What's more, the crook behind the foiled heist called 911 after getting shot at, the paper said.
What are the details?
The victim was holding his cash in his hand at the Bank of America ATM in the 10300 block of Courthouse Road in Spotsylvania at 9 p.m. Oct. 15 when the suspect approached in a "threatening" manner and hit the victim several times, Spotsylvania County Sheriff's Maj. Troy Skebo told the Free Lance-Star.
But the victim — a concealed weapon permit holder — pulled out his gun and fired several shots at the suspect, Skebo told the paper.
The suspect, who was not hit, ran across Courthouse Road in the direction of Mill Garden South subdivision, the Free Lance-Star reported, adding that the suspect called 911 and reported being shot at while at the ATM.
But authorities determined that the 911 caller matched the description of the robbery suspect at the ATM and was taken into custody, Skebo told the paper.
The victim suffered minor injuries during the incident, the Free Lance-Star reported, adding that the suspect was not injured.
What do we know about the suspect?
Trey Khiry Turner, 24, was charged with attempted robbery and placed in the Rappahannock Regional Jail under no bond, the paper reported.
