A 27-year-old man with outstanding warrants was shot numerous times as he attempted to assault and rob an elderly woman in Indianapolis at gunpoint. The woman’s husband took exception to the thug’s behavior and shot him numerous times.
A man was reportedly trying to rob an elderly woman when he was critically shot on the east side Monday afternoon.
Anthony Talley, 27, was shot several times in the 700 block of North Bosart Avenue just after 4:30 p.m. EMS personnel took him to the hospital in critical condition. He was still listed as critical late Monday night.
Witnesses later told police Talley was trying to rob an elderly female business owner inside her rental office at the time. As he pointed a gun at the woman, the victim’s husband appeared from the back of the house. He feared his wife was in danger, so he shot Talley.
The elderly couple was not hurt.
Guns are an equalizer in such situations, and come in handy in other situations as well
A thief walked into a Warren bank expecting to rob it at about 4 p.m. Monday.
But a concealed pistol license holder shot the bank robber three times once in the leg and once in each arm. He is recovering in serious condition at St. John Providence Hospital.
A passer-by recorded a phone video of the bad guy’s very bad day at Citizen’s Bank at Van Dyke north of Nine Mile in Warren.
“It’s not every day you see a bad guy get shot and get taken down,” said witness Gary Guyette.
