LA: Armed Victim was Justified in Shooting
BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Authorities say a victim was justified in shooting and killing a would-be armed robber early Monday morning, and the shooter will not be charged with a crime.
Deputies with the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office say 22-year-old Greg Frazier, of Baton Rouge, walked up to a man and asked for a lighter. When the man reached into his pocket, Frazier allegedly pointed a gun at the person, demanding his possessions. That is when the victim of a would-be armed robber pulled his gun out of his pocket and shot Frazier.
