TN: Robbers pick wrong target: "Two would-be robbers forgot to ask their victim a key question: Do you have a gun and know how to use it? The 21-year-old Bartlett man’s answer might have prevented the two 16-year-olds from being shot. Instead, an exchange of gunfire between the Bartlett man and the robbers Wednesday night left one teenager dead and the other wounded. … The shootout occurred about 10 p.m. Wednesday at the Edgewater Apartments east of Sycamore View and south of Raleigh-LaGrange. According to Moore, one of the suspects fired at the man during an attempted robbery. The victim, who was within 3 feet of one robber and about 10 from the other, fired five shots, four of them striking the would-be robbers.”
