Armed robbery doesn't go as planned when unarmed victim fights back

(Newser) – Here's a story that's both feel-good and horrifying in equal measures. A Baltimore man was shot twice when two armed robbers broke into his apartment early yesterday morning. Did he collapse? Beg for help? Make a run for it? Nope. Despite his wounds, Kenneth Cox, 24, picked up what police say was a "blunt object" and smacked his attacker in the head with it—killing him instantly, WBAL reports. Cox is now in a stable condition in hospital, while cops are still searching for the second robber, who did make a run for it.

Cool story and all but check your facts. The WBAL website that you used as a source also has incorrect facts. Kenneth Cox is the man who died in this incident, NOT the man who was shot.
