Darwin Award Win! Man with toy gun tries to rob man who has real gun.


Yeah, you just had to know that was going to end well...and it did.

POLICE: ATTEMPTED ROBBERY VICTIM FATALLY SHOOTS TOY GUN-WIELDING SUSPECT IN UPPER DARBY

Investigators say a 67-year-old man was walking on a path when the suspect ran up and demanded cash.

"He hears somebody running behind him. As he turns around, he sees a masked man with a gun pointed at him saying, 'Give it up, give me all you got," said Supt. Michael Chitwood, Upper Darby Township Police.

However the intended victim grabbed the suspect's gun.

During the struggle, police say the victim pulled out his own weapon and fired one shot striking the attempted robber in the head, killing him.

The victim does have a concealed weapons permit.

Police have identified the deceased as Tyler Williams of West Philadelphia. Tyler was 18 years old, and police are searching for a relative willing to get in front of the news cameras and tell us all how he was just getting ready to start turning his life around, get a job, and go to school to become a dental hygenist or some other such nonsense.

Meanwhile, in Pennsylvania, the streets are a little safer and even the air is a little fresher tonight.

  5. I hope the victim doesn't become a victim of the prosecutor's office.
