Crime victims shoot robbers in separate incidents

In separate incidents less than 12 hours apart, crime victims fought back by shooting robbers Sunday and early today, killing one suspect and injuring three.

In both cases, the crime victims were not hurt.

Two workers at the Sunoco gas station off Hamilton Avenue in Springfield Township fired their weapons after a gunman shot at them during a hold-up just before 12:30 a.m. today, police said.

The suspect, a man in his late teens or early 20s, died at the scene. His name has not been released.

Earlier, about 3 p.m. Sunday, the victim of a street robbery in Lockland opened fire on three suspects, injuring all three. They were treated at University Hospital and released.

No charges have been filed in either case while police investigate and consult with the Hamilton County Prosecutor’s Office.

While law enforcement officials don’t recommend people take matters into their own hands, others say sometimes it’s just unavoidable.
