    Another Armed Citizen Victory


    Bank customer shoots gunman after robbery


    The Kansas City Star

    An investigator worked at the scene of a robbery Saturday in which a bank customer shot a man who had taken money from him at gunpoint. The robber was in stable condition.

    A bank customer shot a robber after an armed confrontation in a Kansas City parking lot Saturday.The robber was wounded in the head and was in stable condition at a hospital, police said.
    The shooting happened about 9 a.m. when a man and a woman were in a car using the automated teller machine at the Bank of America at North Oak Trafficway and Barry Road.
    They were robbed at gunpoint, but as the gunman walked away, the man in the car got out armed with his own gun, said Sgt. Chris Lantz of the departmentís robbery unit.
    The man yelled for the robber to stop. When the robber turned around and pointed his gun, the man fired at him, hitting him in the head, Lantz said.
    At the scene Saturday, investigators were collecting evidence from a dark sedan parked next to the ATM. An object that looked like a handgun was lying on the pavement. Nearby were apparent bloodstains.
    Police interviewed the couple and witnesses.
    The robbery victim had a permit to carry a concealed gun, Lantz said. Under the circumstances, Lantz said, that would not matter because he could legally carry the weapon in his car.
    No criminal case has been presented, and authorities are waiting to see whether the patient recovers, said Jim Roberts, spokesman for the Clay County prosecutorís office.
    Police ask that anyone who witnessed the incident call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS (474-8477).
