Resident Shoots Robber, Foils Robbery

A resident opened fire on a would-be robber Friday morning outside a Waco apartment complex, foiling the hold-up and sending the man to a local hospital.

It happened outside the Parkside Village apartments on North 9th Street in Waco.

Initial reports were that a resident witnessed a man attempting to rob another person and fired as many as six shots at the would-be robber, who was struck at least three times.

Police learned of the incident after the badly injured man turned up at the Hillcrest Baptist Medical Center emergency room.

Late Friday morning police were still at the hospital and at the scene of the robbery.

Other details were not immediately available.
