    Man with concealed-carry permit kills robbery suspect in Cleveland

    Associated Press
    CLEVELAND—A man who has a permit to carry a concealed gun shot and killed one of two teenage robbery suspects he encountered on his front porch, police said.

    City prosecutors decided yesterday that the 25-year-old Cleveland man was justified and would not be charged in the shooting Saturday night of 15-year-old Arthur Buford, a freshman at John F. Kennedy High School.

    Buford and another teen approached the man on his porch and one of the youths pulled a gun, prompting the resident to pull his gun and shoot Buford several times in the chest, police said.

    Police took a .40-caliber Smith and Wesson from the man as evidence, according to a police report.

    Toby Hoover, director of the Toledo-based Ohio Coalition Against Gun Violence, said she had not heard of any other fatal shooting involving someone who has a permit to carry a concealed gun under the state's 3-year-old law.

    About 30 youths gathered Monday at the intersection where Buford died and set up a memorial. His cousin, Tameka Foster, 21, questioned the decision against prosecuting the shooter.

    "They let that man run out freely," Foster said. "My cousin is dead."

    Buford's alleged accomplice fled after and shooting and has not been caught. Police believe a .38-caliber handgun they found in the mail chute of a nearby house belonged to Buford or the other suspect, Lt. Thomas Stacho said.

    I just don't get it, does she just not realize that her cousin was robbing someone at gunpoint, threatening that persons life? I don't understand the logic, or lack there of...

    Very frustrating....

    I am sure that the perp was a good boy who went to church and would not hurt a soul. Next thing you know they will say it was because of race.
