Man Who Shot Alleged Robber Charged with 26 Gun Crimes

A 65-year-old man who shot a 32-year-old alleged knife-wielding robber in Queens this week is now facing 26 gun charges.

Breitbart News reported that the alleged knife-wielding robber died Wednesday morning after being shot. The 65-year-old man, Charles Foehner, claimed the suspect lunged at him while holding a sharp object.

On Friday ABC 7 noted that Foehner was arrested and “arraigned on 26 gun charges.”

Queens criminal court judge Jerry Iannece indicated that Foehner “was on the street with a loaded, unlicensed gun,”

Iannece added, “There are too many shootings in this city! The court is quite concerned with what we see.”

Investigators indicated the 32-year-old did not have a knife but did have “a pen.” They also noted that the deceased suspect “had more than a dozen prior arrests.”

Foehner is being held on $50,000 bail.
