BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - A case where the victim quickly turned the table on his would-be attackers has taken a new turn Thursday. The two men, who were shot by the father of their would-be victim, were both sentenced to five years in prison Thursday for criminal possession of a weapon and robbery.
This all took place in July on Minnesota Avenue, in Buffalo. Robert Moore, 19, and Bernard Byrd, 22, came up on three men at gunpoint trying to rob them. The father of one of the would-be victims grabbed his legally-owned gun.
A shootout between the father and both Moore and Byrd started, and ended up with both of the robbers shot, one on the leg, the other in the chest. Both pleaded guilty and have previous robbery convictions. Judge Kenneth Case says he hopes both learned the hard way.
Case said, “I think you both found out the hard way that there are law-abiding citizens out there who are legally licensed to carry firearms who, I think, are a little sick and tired of people like you and maybe you should consider that next time you're even thinking about robbing someone.”
Judge Case also said the community deserves to not have to worry about both of them on the streets. Both robbers were sent away to prison for five years.
