Concealed handgun permit holder stops armed robbery outside Atlanta store

Police have determined that this concealed carry permit holder acted in self defense when he shot the robber.  From the Associated Press:
Police say an armed man trying to rob customers outside an Atlanta shoe store was fatally shot by one of the patrons waiting in line to buy sneakers.
WSB-TV reports the shooting happened Saturday morning in the city's Little Five Points neighborhood, where people lined up outside Wish Clothing to buy new $180 sneakers endorsed by Miami Heat star LeBron James.
Witnesses told police a man armed with a gun tried to rob people standing outside the store. But one of the customers drew his own handgun and shot the robber. Police say the suspect ran just a few yards before he fell dead. . . . .

While I was at a certain popular website to check my e-mail, I could not help but notice that this particular story was on said site. So, I thought that I would see how it was presented, and lo and behold, there was zero mention of the robber even having a gun.

The shooting was presented as;

"Shoppers waiting in line to purchase the latest incarnation of LeBron James’ signature shoe outside Atlanta were being harassed by a reported pickpocket until one patron decided to pull a gun out and shoot the as-yet unidentified man in what is being considered a move motivated by self-defense."

So much for truth in reporting...
