ATLANTA (AP) -- Police in Atlanta say a man was defending himself when he shot and killed a suspected robber on Christmas Eve.

Atlanta police spokeswoman Kim Jones says the attempted robbery happened Monday night on Jackson Street in southeast Atlanta.

Jones said investigators found that two men tried to rob a person, and the intended victim pulled his own gun to defend himself and shot one of the suspects.

Police tell The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (http://bit.ly/ZA2h7N) that the suspect who survived, a 21-year-old man, was taken into custody and is facing charges including armed robbery. Police said the dead man's name was not being released until relatives could be notified.
