DECATUR, GA — An armed bystander very likely saved the life of a store owner who was ambushed at his liquor store, 11 Alive reports.
Apparently, these robbers were more than happy to shoot a man in the chest so long as it meant a payday for them. Someone who watched the owner horribly attacked quickly came to the rescue.
As 11 Alive reports:
At midnight on Monday, officers responded to reports of three individuals suffering from gunshot wounds at a liquor store located at 1920 Wesley Chapel Road. When officers arrived, they found the store owner suffering from a gunshot wound to his chest, a possible suspect suffering from a gunshot wound in his back and another individual who may or may not be involved in the incident was suffering from a gunshot wound to his foot.
Police believe that this was an attempted robbery and the store owner had come to this establishment during closing time when he was confronted by three individuals. One of the alleged suspects fired at the store owner, hitting him in the chest, and a bystander then shot the individual in the back.
Police say that the bystander allegedly works as a jailer in a nearby county and was just a possible patron during the time of the incident. The individual who was shot in the foot may or may not be a suspect but is being questioned at this time… The store owner was transported to a nearby hospital in serious but stable condition and no fatalities have been reported.
Liquor stores can be problem areas for concealed carriers — in many areas carrying a firearm in one is banned. In such areas, however, be sure to keep your firearm safely stored in your car.
Stay safe out there, folks.
