A Washington man shot his way out of a robbery last week in the city of Auburn in the Seattle-Tacoma area.

The police are still withholding the names of both men involved. Officers responding to the shooting found two men, one dead, the other shot in the arm.

The man shot and killed the armed robber after being shot himself. He was leaving a business when the armed man confronted him.

    Free medical and a box of defense ammo for this man. May he heal and not be soulscarred by this.
