Pittsburgh, PA — It was a bizarre situation. Andrew Moore, a man in his early thirties, walked into Armen’s House of Music on Saturday, looked around and left.
When he returned, he had a nightstick with him and he started beating the store owner’s seventy year old wife. Terrifyingly, the police have concluded that robbery WAS NOT the motive. In fact, they’re unsure why Moore was beating a woman old enough to be his grandmother with a club and the Armens say that they don’t know the man.
Sylvia Armen’s husband tried to fight off the crazed thug attacking his wife, but he was overpowered by the much younger man.
However, Alfred Armen had an equalizer: his gun.
He shot Andrew Moore.
Sylvia and Alfred Armen were both taken to the hospital with head injuries, but happily Bethel Park Police Chief John Mackey said, “I think they’re in pretty decent shape considering what occurred here today.”
Moore, on the other hand, ended up in the morgue.
If the advocates of gun control had gotten their way, the Armens would have probably been the ones in the morgue and Andrew Moore would still be walking the streets with his nightstick.
Although it’s sad to see anyone lose his life, this seems like a better outcome.
