A concealed carry permit holder shot and killed a 16-year-old teenager attempting an armed robbery outside a mall in Dayton, Ohio.
According to the Associated Press, Jawaad Jabbar and his two friends went to the Dayton Mall for a shoe sale on Saturday morning. Sgt. Joe Phares told reporters that while details are still being investigated, the teenagers got there too late to buy the new Nike Air Jordans they wanted.
The three juveniles then walked up to two adult men outside the mall and demanded their purchased merchandise. Jabbar pulled out a gun, and one of the adult men — who happened to be a concealed carry permit holder — pulled out his concealed handgun and fired one shot at Jabbar.
Jabbar was hit in the torso and died at the scene. The Dayton Daily News reports that the other two teenagers, ages 16 and 17, fled the scene but were later arrested. Both are currently being held in juvenile detention in Dayton.
“This was a random act of, `I want something that person has, and I’m going to take it from him,” Phares told reporters. “It didn’t go down the way they thought it would.”
As the WLWT notes, the investigation remains ongoing. The concealed carry permit holder was questioned by police, but not arrested or charged. Formal charges have yet to be filed, but Phares said the two juveniles could end up being charged in the shooting death of Jabbar.
