Masked Teen Attempting To Rob A 67 YO Man Pays The Price

When a teen saw a 67 years old man walking alone, he thought that his moment had come. He donned a mask and attempted to rob him. 

Tyler Williams of West Philadelphia made a fatal mistake. After he saw the old man walking alone, he confronted him and demanded cash. 

He had a gun and he made the victim believe that his life was in danger, but the gun was a ‘toy’, and he succeeded.

After he approached the older man, and pointed a pellet gun in his face, the victim deflected the gun from his face and pulled out his own .38 caliber handgun. 

He shot Tyler in the head and called the police. Even the police thought that the pellet gun was real. 

Tyler died at the scene, and the shooting was ruled justifiable and an act of self-defense facing no charges. We have to realize that what was called a fake and toy gun was a pellet gun.

It isn’t lethal against humans but it can be from close range.

There are about 4 deaths per year caused by BB guns or pellet rifles. It increases the risk of death if you are hit in the head, so the old man was justified. 

What do you think about this? It was fair that the old man was justified? Would it be ok if he was sentenced? Share your thoughts in the comments on Facebook.
