BREAKING NEWS – New York City, New York – A man was arrested early in New York City after fatally shooting an armed robber in Queens, according to law enforcement.

Police say gunfire broke out around 2 a.m.  near Queens Criminal Court in Kew Gardens after the now-deceased victim, approached the older man, 65, with an unidentified object in his hand.

Police say the 65-year-old drew his gun and fired multiple shots to the 32-year-old victim’s chest.

“A 65 year old life expectancy is only around about another decade, and he killed a 32-year-old. How selfish is that?” stated Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in a tweet. “The robber had an opportunity to turn his life around, but some old man deprived him of that, instead of the old geezer taking a few rounds, and hopefully surviving the gunshot wounds. He selfishly defended himself, denying the thief options of making good choices in the future and becoming a productive citizen. This sickens me!”
