On Monday, November 12, 2012, at about 1:30 in the afternoon, there was an attempted bank robbery very close to my home. It is unclear (to me) at this time whether there was one would-be bank robber or two. The robber (or one of the robbers) shot a man in the leg on the robber's way out of the bank. The shooter then fled into a fuel station next door to the bank. A CHCL holder, who I understand was at the gas station, opened fire on the robber(s).

This happened in broad daylight in a "good part" of town. The address of the bank is in the article in case you want to look at a map of the area, but I will tell you that the bank is essentially in the front parking lot of a Kroger, as is a Kroger fuel station. The parking lots of the fuel station and the bank are situated so that you can drive between the two without ever getting out on the street. I know this because I shop & fuel up at that very Kroger.

It remains to be seen whether the CHCL holder will face any charges, but I do note that one of the articles states that the CHCL holder was released without charges. I have opened this thread so that we can monitor & discuss the legal situation.

The first article made it sound like the robber was trying to escape when the CHL opened up on him.

That is what all of the news reports that I've heard indicate, as well.

I think (but am not entirely sure) that the permit holder's round hit someone else's vehicle at the fuel station.

he was there so maybe he perceived a threat. there is a lot of stuff to process in a very brief time and the consequences for getting it wrong last forever
