Man shot in chest trying to defend himself against 18 y/o robber

PITTSBURGH - A suspected robber and his target exchanged gunfire on an Oakland street early Friday morning, Pittsburgh police said.



The victim was walking out of the McDonald's restaurant on Forbes Avenue with friends at about 2:40 a.m. when he was confronted by Jason Woodall (pictured), who wanted to steal a bracelet that the man was wearing, police said.

Woodall went to a nearby parked car and got a handgun -- which was stolen -- then came back and tried to rob the man at gunpoint, police said.

The victim pulled out a legally registered and licensed handgun and exchanged shots with Woodall, taking one gunshot to the chest, police said.

"He just said, 'Mom, I just got shot. I'm at [the Original Hot Dog Shop]. I just got shot,' and the phone went blank, my phone went blank," said the victim's mother, Sheila Garmon.

City police said Woodall ran to Oakland Avenue, where a University of Pittsburgh police officer arrested him and took his gun.

Police said Woodall, 18, of McKees Rocks, was treated at a hospital, then taken to the Allegheny County Jail on charges of attempted homicide, aggravated assault, robbery, carrying a gun without a license and receiving stolen property.

The victim was taken to UPMC Presbyterian for surgery and was last reported to be in critical condition. The Allegheny County District Attorney's Office will review the case to decide if he should face any charges.

  • Notice how esauistheend isn't going to comment here, since he's a racist who hates white people, but when a black person shoots someone all of a sudden he doesn't give a shit. He talks shit about race wars 24/7 but he is too much of a puss to congratulate the young black man for shooting someone.

    Here's an insult he'll understand. Internet punk.

    • @Moore Slayer There is truth to what your saying, no doubt. I live in Chicago. But you do realize that blacks only make up 13% of the population, right?

      Yes! I do see a trend. These Afro-African "black" people of sub-Saharan slave kin ancestry are LOST! And they simply refuse to assimilate! Most disgusting and sad of all, is that they even refuse to relearn their Indigenous sub-Saharan African "black" Tribal language (Don't know which sub-Saharan Bantu language to learn? Pick one! They're all "black" people anyways!), refuse to relearn their Indigenous culture, religion, food-cuisine, etc...perhaps w More..

    • @John_Galt Where the fuck did you come from? Here comes the cavalry, I guess. Haha! Still, 13% means that blacks aren't taking over shit. Not to mention, Blacks are leaving Chicago and other northern cities to find work down south. www.huffingtonpost.com/.../08/04/chicago-black-population... - Cached

    WTF?

    The man is defending his life, is shot in the chest by his attacker, is now in critical condition and the POS District Attorney is going to see if he needs to be charged with a crime and face charges!

    Someone needs to bust a cap in the DA's ass for having to take More..

  • If you have an infestation of ants, roaches, fleas, tapeworms, lice or any other filthy worthless no-hope parasite ... you can generally deal with it by locating and blocking up where they are getting in, stopping them from breeding and / or exterminating the adults.

    Some parasites however are immune ... so it seems.

  • What is it with blacks that they keep on wanting to rob people of their property? Why can't they ever buy it on their own instead of harming someone for their belongings and risk getting killed or at least receiving a trip to Nagger University (prison)?

  • Its one thing to just own a gun, but you must know how to use it. If I ever came into a situation where I was approached by someone armed trying to rob me in a public place, my first words will be 'Your really going to try to rob me with a cop right there?' and when he looks... blam.

  • Everybody got a handgun. You'd think it would be a deterrent. But it isn't. So disarm everyone or just kill the criminals. Or quit making a society that makes criminals. Ok wait.

  • I bet the DA is thinking of Sanford, and is going to sit on it for awhile. Philly has some of the most violent Black communities in the country.

    Not defending, just saying.
