Police: Victim Shoots Would-Be Robber

Police said that a robbery victim acted in self-defense when he shot a man who was trying to rob him late Monday morning.

The incident occurred at about 11 a.m. behind a Wendy's restaurant, located on Broadway.

Investigators told 10TV's Glenn McEntyre that a man was walking his dog when another man approached him with a gun and demanded his wallet.

The victim complied and then pulled out his own gun, shooting the robber, police said.

The accused robber, Keith Walker Jr., ran to a nearby neighborhood where he collapsed. Walker underwent surgery at Grant Medical Center in Columbus, McEntyre reported.

Amir Ibrahim, 19, was charged with tampering with evidence in connection with the incident. According to police, Ibrahim lives at the home where Walker collapsed and hid his gun and the victim's wallet inside the home.
