CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Police said a suspected robber was shot with his own gun during an attack on two men outside the offices of a limousine company. The incident happened at about 3 a.m. on South Tryon Street just south of Clanton Road in southwest Charlotte.
Officers said three men with guns approached a chauffeur and the owner of the limousine company as they were closing up shop. The limo driver (who didn't want his name printed) was ordered to lie down on the ground and as one of the robbers reached for a laptop computer inside a vehicle, the business owner grabbed the attacker's gun and struggled with him.
He said then the gun went off, striking the robber. No one else was injured. Police said the man who was shot was later dropped off at a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Authorities are still looking for the man's accomplices.
