Robber shot by one of the victims he was attempting to rob

Cleveland Police received a call for a male shot at 11204 Ada.  When officers arrived on scene, they found a male who had been shot in the stomach.

While on scene, officers were approached by a male who said that he had been walking down Lakeview earlier with two other males when they were surrounded by two unknown males.  Those males attempted to rob them, but the victim told police he pulled his own gun and fired 2 shots at the suspect who had been pointing a gun at him.

The victim stated that he fired 3 more shots in the air to scare them away.

Both suspects fled.  The male that had been shot ended up on Ada, where police were called.

The victim allowed officers into his home to show them the weapon used, and show his CCW permit.

The suspect that was shot was taken to MetroHealth Medical Center.
