Your Self-Defense Story of the Day

Aurora, Colorado

AURORA, Colo. – A good guy with a gun helped stop a bad guy with a gun in Aurora Friday afternoon, according to the Aurora Police Department.

A shooting at the Village East Grocery Store in the area of East Mississippi Avenue and South Peoria Street led police to the crime scene at around 2:09 p.m., where they found a woman suffering from a gunshot wound in the parking lot of the grocery store, according to a press release.

“It is believed that the female victim is the owner of the grocery store and that she sustained her injuries during a robbery of the business,” Aurora Police spokesman Kenneth Forrest said in a statement.

The woman was taken to a hospital where she currently remains in serious, but stable condition.

Forrest said that during the investigation, officers determined that a Good Samaritan confronted the robbery suspect outside of the grocery store and shot him. The suspect then fled the area.
