Default Customer fatally shot a would-be robber

Quote:
Police today said a customer fatally shot a would-be robber Monday evening at a busy Walgreens Pharmacy at 6101 Northwest Radial Highway.

Investigators believe that two masked men entered the Walgreen's about 8:50 p.m., one armed with a short shotgun, said Officer Jacob Bettin, a police spokesman.

Police were not releasing the dead man's name until relatives could be notified.


The armed suspect leveled the gun at customers, police said. One of the customers at the register, who has a permit to carry a gun, drew a handgun from the waistband of his pants and fired at the gunman, hitting him several times, Bettin said.

The wounded man fled, but then collapsed on the north side of the store. He was taken to Creighton University Medical Center, where he died.

The second suspect was held in the store by the same customer until officers arrived. That 17-year-old was booked into the Douglas County Youth Center on suspicion of robbery and using a weapon to commit a felony, police said.

Police interviewed the customer with the handgun and released him after detectives conferred with the Douglas County attorney, Bettin said.

The case remains under investigation.

He sounds like a hero to me but I just hope the customer isn't sued by the suspect's family.

He probably saved the customers and the cashiers lives.

That's a definite YES. He shot the armed perp and held the other one until the police arrived. All in all, a good day for the GOOD guys and a definitely bad day for the BAD guys. Justifiable AND included the removal of a piece of human trash from the world.
