A man shot and killed an armed robber after he was approached at an ATM at an bank early Tuesday morning, a Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman said.

The victim, identified as 64-year-old Frederick Hecker, was at the Wells Fargo location at 4549 Hoffner Ave., near Conway Road, when 27-year-old Carlos Medina tried to rob him at gunpoint, spokeswoman Jane Watrel said. Hecker had a gun, for which he has a concealed weapons permit, and exchanged shots with Medina, Watrel said.

Hecker drove away and called 911, then returned to the scene, Watrel said.

Medina was transported to Orlando Regional Medical Center in serious condition and later was pronounced dead.

Publicizing the fact that some ATM customers are carrying concealed handguns is a very good thing. We want would-be robbers to be a bit more nervous. Please share this story.

Robbers,camouflaged, simply need to appear to use an ATM,never looking at next user. Stepping away,allowing the next user to step up thinking the robber was just another user. User will turn to ATM & never see the robber pointing a gun at their back.
How's that good guy with a gun,theology,protecting you or you GOD/money?
Yes! There are other scenarios!
Some of us don't place ourselves at risk. It's called not being stupid.
