A lawyer in Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic apparently shot three robbers, one of which was his client. 

Sunday morning at 4:00am Manuel Polanco Moya was stopped by three armed men near his home, who announced they were going to rob him.  They proceeded to break his front wind shield on his Nissan Pathfinder so he knew they meant business.  He must of also known what type of client he had. 

His client, Ezekiel D’Oleo Polanco, was on trial for killing a Chinese national during an armed robbery last year. 

So the local attorney decided to resist the assault and proceeded to shoot his client.

The client died after being shot in the chest and the other two accomplices Jancel de la Cruz and another id’ed only as El Bairon are being sought by Dominican authorities.
