Police: Woman Shoots Robber With His Own Gun

(Memphis)  Police say a man who tried to rob two people this morning in Whitehaven was shot and killed with his own gun.

So far, the woman who shot him has not been charged with anything, but police are referring to her as a suspect.

The shooting happened just after midnight Tuesday at the Sterling Townhomes And Apartments on Raines Road east of Interstate 55.

Police say a man and woman inside the complex were approached by man who tried to rob them at gunpoint.

They say during a struggle the woman got the robber’s gun and fired several shots killing him and injuring the man who was with her.

People who live inside the apartment complex had little sympathy for the robber.

“Sometimes you get it trying to rob, trying to take from somebody. People work hard for what they got people and are going to put up a fight,” said the man.

The other man who was shot is expected to recover.
