Elmwood Park, IL - A gunfight broke out at a gas station when an armed robber thought he was targeting an easy victim (video below.)
On April 8th at around 4:52 PM, the video shows Ronald Morales (in the red jacket on the video) walk out of a BP gas station and pull a gun on somebody who had stopped to pump gas.
The would-be victim saw Morales pulling a gun as he approached, so he pulled his own gun. A gunfight broke out between the two and Morales was fatally shot. After being shot, he ran off and died.
The victim then drove off. Police investigated and determined it was self defense and there are no plans for the victim to be charged.
Having seen a lot of surveillance video, I can say that this is some of the best quality footage I've seen. This is a business that took their security camera system seriously.
The police credited the gas station's high-quality cameras with allowing them to quickly determine that this was a case of self defense.
