Robber Pulls Fake Gun, Clerk Pulls Real Gun, Robber Gets Shot, Clerk Goes Home, Robber Goes To Hospital


FAIRFIELD, CALIFORNIA — An armed robber with a mask barged into a smoke shop and pulled a gun from his waistband. That gun turned out to be all show, but the armed clerk was ready to defend himself with a real gun.

The robber was shot in the chest and was taken to the hospital in critical condition. The clerk was uninjured.

Whether the gun was fake or not is irrelevant, because the display of a gun is enough to justify drawing your real firearm. The fake gun was actually a realistic-looking bb-gun, which of course the clerk did not know at the time.

If you play stupid games, you’ll win stupid prizes. In this case, the game was trying to be a thug, and the prize was a bullet to the chest.
