An Arizona man was visiting family and standing outside near the home when two male suspects approached him and demanded his wallet. When the man continued to refuse one suspect brandished his weapon in an attempt to scare and threaten the victim. The man however had his own concealed weapon and grabbed it–firing and striking one of the suspects in the neck.

The two robbers fled the scene and were later arrested at a local hospital–where doctors noticed blood on the car, a blue bandana, and the obvious gunshot wound. The suspect remains in critical condition while prosecutors plan to charge the robbers with attempted murder and armed robbery. They later confessed that they would “take down” the victim, just to get his wallet.
