75 year-old Ohio man shoots armed teen during attempted robbery

Columbus' 10TV.com is reporting that a 75 year-old man who was walking his dog used a firearm in self-defense when an armed teen tried to rob him.

From the story:

The shooting occurred Monday morning while Richard Maiden was taking his dog for a walk.

Maiden said a teenager approached him and asked questions about his companion, Vinny.

"He asked me what kind of dog it was and I told him," Maiden said. "And about that time he pulled the gun, put it in my face."

Maiden said he handed over his wallet when the robber demanded, but he also pulled out his own gun.

"I told him to stop," Maiden said. "He didn't stop, so he pointed the gun at me and I commenced firing."

According to the story, the wounded teenager took off running, making it about a half-mile to a side yard where he collapsed. A neighbor found him and called police, who arrived and recovered a gun and Maiden's wallet.

Maiden, who is a retired liquor control agent, said he hopes the teenager recovers from his wounds, but he said he had no regrets about his actions.

"The next person he robs he might shoot," Maiden said. "So maybe this'll give him a little message."

Police identified the alleged robber as Keith Walker, Jr., 18, McEntyre reported.

He was in critical condition Monday night at Grant Medical Center.

The neighbor who found Walker in the yard has been charged with tampering with evidence after police say he allegedly helped Walker hide the wallet and gun from police, McEntyre reported.

Police said they do not expect to file charges against Maiden.

18yo robs a 75 yo man at gunpoint and gets shot. The victim hopes he's OK.

That is a better man than me. (I think I'd have let the dog have supper)

He was probably being honest.

As for the neighbor, F you. Someone who will help the guilty and harm the innocent like that... hope he gets prison time.

+1 to my old Ohio buddies.

Ohio Sr. Citizen, who has been busting his ass working all his life, paying his taxes, playing by the rules, just decides to walk his dog,

and some young puke sticks him up

effing 18 year old oxygen-thief punk got what he deserved.

makes you wonder about the alleged "neighbor." prolly his lookout or accomplise.

Thank heaven our law-abiding Sr. citizen was carrying!

P.S.

Sara Brady, Schumer + Obama will now classify this criminal as "child shot in neighborshood," since they consider any/all under 21 to be a "child." yeah––right.

I like it when a 75 year american get drawn down on while walking his dog, wins the gunfight and isn't charged. With this economy and unemployment at new highs, we'll be seeing more of these stories.

That neighbor should be charged as an accessory to armed robbery. If he isnt, I would like to know the exact reason he is not being charged, and who the judge or prosecutor was. I pulled this definition off of a law website. It fits the scenario perfectly.
(A criminal charge of aiding and abetting or accessory can usually be brought against anyone who helps in the commission of a crime, though legal distinctions vary by state. A person charged with aiding and abetting or accessory is usually not present when the crime itself is committed, but he or she has knowledge of the crime before or after the fact, and may assist in its commission through advice, actions, or financial support. Depending on the degree of involvement, the offender's participation in the crime may rise to the level of conspiracy.)

Don't forget about his ride in the ambulance, and the ER bill. I'd be shocked to learn that this guy had health insurance, or a propper job for that matter...
