Police said a group of people who had left Eli’s Tavern, at 21 Daniel Street, were walking into the parking garage when two men approached them and demanded their personal belongings.
One of the robbers pointed a handgun at the group and fired a shot in the neck of one of the victims, police said.
In self-defense, another victim grabbed his own licensed firearm and returned fire, striking one of the robbers, police said. The second person ran off.
And as always, the problem is that they may be wanting something you cannot afford to give. That is an unacceptable proposition and demands a firm denial like in this case.
