A Minneapolis man will not be charged after he shot a robber in a Cub Foods parking lot on Oct. 20, according to Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman.
The man, who will not be named for safety purposes, saw the robber, later identified as 23-year-old Darren Evanovich, "pistol-whip a woman and take her purse," according the the Star Tribune. The man drove up to Evanovich and asked for him to give the purse back.
When Evanovich told the man to "mind his own business" and pointed a gun at the witness, he shot Evanovich and killed him, according to the criminal complaint.
The witness, who had a permit to own the gun, said he acted in self-defense; however, Evanovich's mother seemed to think the outcome of the situation should have been different, according to the Star Tribune. "They're not going to press charges against the man who killed my son? Are you all serious?" she said.
KARE 11 reports that the Good Samaritan will have to prove that he wasn't the aggressor, that he felt threatened and that he had no other choice but to shoot. Although the witness has not been arrested, the case will be passed on to the Hennepin County Attorney's Office after the investigation is complete.
