A suspect was shot and killed when he tried to rob an 81-year-old man at gunpoint outside of the man’s home in Genoa, Arkansas, on Thursday afternoon.
Buddy Cates told KSLA that he walked outside of his home around 1:30 p.m. and came face to face with the suspect, who authorities are still working to identify.
Cates said the suspect was holding a “big pistol,” but Cates also had his hand in his pocket, gripping his own gun.
“The battle was one,” Cates recalled, noting that, between the two, at least a dozen shots were fired.
“Whoever got the biggest gun and fastest will be boss when it is all said and done,” Cates said. “In this case, it was me.”
