The intruder who punched out a Chandler man while stealing beer at a keg party picked the wrong victim.
The man, who had been attempting to defend his wife during the beer theft, had a permit to carry a concealed weapon. Fearing for his life and under attack, he pulled out a gun and fatally shot two men believed by police to be gang members early Sunday morning.
The money quote:
"People in Arizona carry guns," said Detective David Ramer, a Chandler police spokesman. "You better be careful about who you are picking on."
It Get's better.
"Chandler police have arrested seven other men and plan to recommend that they be charged not only with robbery but with murder because the slayings occurred during the commission of another crime, Ramer said."
A lot of states don't require that the bad guy does the shooting. If a killing happens because during the commission of a crime then the all the (remaining) bad guys can be held for murder, even if a non-bad guy was the one doing the shooting.
