Former Marine fends off Atlanta robbers Tue May 30, 11:22 AM ET

 

 

 

ATLANTA - A former Marine used a pocket knife to fend off a group of would-be robbers, killing one and wounding another, police said.

 

Thomas Autry, who authorities said will not be charged, had been walking home from his job waiting tables Monday night when four people got out of a car and chased him, Atlanta police detective Danny Stephens said.

 

One of the attackers had a shotgun and another had a pistol, Stephens said.

 

The suspects caught up with Autry, who yelled for help and pulled a knife out of his backpack. He kicked the shotgun out of one of the attacker's hands and stabbed both a 17-year-old girl who jumped on him and a man who also attacked him.

 

The suspects fled in their car but police found them later at a hospital where the girl was pronounced dead. The man stabbed in the incident was in critical condition, Stephens said.

 

Autry's attackers will face robbery and aggravated assault charges and are suspected in other robberies over the past week, Stephen said.

 

Stephens credited Autry's military training with helping him fend off the group.

 

"I would say he had to do what he had to do to stop the threat," Stephens said. "You can tell his training kicked in and he knew what to do."

 

Autry, 36, suffered a cut to his hand and a bruise on his chest, Stephens said.

Good for him, and I have no sympathy for the would be attackers, fuck em the world is better off without scumbags like them roaming the streets. Just goes to show why law abiding citizens should be able to carry concealed weapons. Ride Safe, AW

The man stabbed who is in critical condition should be charged with the homicide of the girl that died (scum that she is). Would serve the prick right.

My philosophy is...

 

if you think what I got is worth dying for

 

allow me to provide you with an opportunity

RCH is Right! the other robbers will be charged with homocide. (the ol lady is a damn lawyer) I was proud to be an active duty Marine in the 80s so there is no question that I have no remorse for the attackers! I glad the Bitch died and I hope the one in critical dies too!

The day you can not protect yourself is the day I pick up another weapon and truly defend the constitution!
