Fighting back: Pennsylvania man shoots teens in self defense, one dead
And the other teens involved in this attack should be charged with murder since their intentional criminal act resulted in the death of one of their buddies.
This happened a week ago this morning, at 11 a.m.
The man was cycling on a trail in Reading, Pa., shortly before 11:00 am local time Wednesday morning, when a group of teens pushed him off the bicycle and two of them assaulted him, investigators said.
I find it a bit disturbing the Reading Eagle referred to the man as being “in custody” and a “suspect” in the original article, but at least they did not mention the man’s name.
The 65 year old then took out a handgun and shot them both, the Reading Eagle reported.
One of the teens — a 16 year old from Reading — was pronounced dead at the scene at 12:17 p.m. local time.
