Off-Duty Deputy Stops Robbery While Jogging

An off-duty St. Charles County (Mo.) Sheriff's deputy shot three men who attempted to rob him while he jogged late Monday night at Forest Park's Grand Basin.

The men approached the deputy, 36, and a female friend, 23. One of the men raised a pistol and said, "Don't make me kill you," reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

The deputy announced he was a police officer and opened fire, killing Antonio Nash and wounding Jordan Hunter and Jamaal Robinson. On Tuesday, Hunter and Robinson, both 20, were charged with second-degree murder in the death of Nash, 18.

St. Charles County Sheriff Tom Neer said the shooting appears to be justified and credited the deputy as competent and well-trained. The deputy is assigned to a federal task force.

Glock 23 or S&W Shield - Never leave home without either one. . . and sometimes both.

Not sure why the remaining two were not charged with Capitol murder. They were in the commission of a felony and someone lost their life. Glad the officer and the other victim were not hurt.

Some states WILL charge you , if you or a friend is injured or killed during the commission of a serious crime.

I've been wondering what restrictions there are for getting a gun. I'm happy that officer was there and is now safe. Just think if it had been a civilian. OMG

Thank you for surviving brother. I can tell these background checks are working to keep guns out of peoples hands that can't have them

Outstanding! Always carry. Imagine the surprise and sudden, bowel activating fear those three felt when their intended victim turned the tables on them. Bet the two that are still alive will never forget. Good riddance to the other POS.

I'm still trying to figure out why he "announced he was a police officer".
Maybe it was BOOM..Police.. BOOM... Officer... BOOM?

@ Gary: I'm still laughing at your comment and was thinking the same exact thing. I'm glad the the deputy and his friends are ok.

EC71 @ 9/27/2013 9:52 AM

"Friend" I meant.

Sometimes things just work out right!!!

At least the state won't have keep up but two of them instead of three. His aim could have been better.

They picked the wrong couple. The deputy did what he had to do. Otherwise he and his girl would probably have been dead. She would have been raped and then killed. Good work deputy stay safe and take care of your friend.
