20978

In the Caballito neighborhood of Buenos Aires in Argentina, a robber armed with a gun approached an elderly man sitting in his truck and attempted to hijack him. The old man however had a gun of his own and was not afraid to use it.

The CCTV video shows the robber dressed like a construction worker approaching the white Ford Ranger in which 62 year old Pedro Gonzalez was seated.

The offender hit the driver’s window of the truck threateningly with a 9 millimeter pistol. Mr. Gonzales responded to the threat with fire, hitting the assailant three times, once in each shoulder and once in the groin.

Whereas the thief was taken to hospital where he’s said to be in delicate state, the victim was arrested and imprisoned.

According to police spokesmen, the thief had in his backpack a grenade and extra ammo for the weapon he was carrying.

UPDATE

An Argentinean friend Denis noted that while the thief survives to continue his criminal career, the driver is doing time because in Argentina, carrying a firearm is illegal.
