Would-Be Robber Ends Up As Shooting Victim

A would-be thief ended up in the hospital with a gunshot wound after a failed robbery attempt in Mt. Auburn overnight.

Police say the would-be robber, 20-year-old Anthony Walker of Corryville, approached two men at a home in the 120 block of Malvern Place and threatened them with a gun.

One of the men, who has a permit to carry a concealed weapon, reportedly shot Walker during the altercation.

Both of the intended victims then drove to the Cincinnati Police District One station and reported the incident.

Rescue crews transported Walker to University Hospital for treatment of a gunshot wound to the chest. He is now facing charges of aggravated robbery.
