A man walked into a Subway restaurant to get a bite to eat while he was in town for his wife, who was at a local hospital and possibly in labor. While he was there, another man walked into the restaurant and headed to the bathroom.
When he came back out, he had an employee at gunpoint and announced a robbery, pointing the gun at terrified customers.
That’s when first man, legally armed with his own gun, took matters into his own hands.
The robbery suspect is reported to have been holding customers in the Subway at gunpoint, but Crook stated that the gun “might not be a working gun,” and was potentially a toy or replica, but one that appeared real. A customer at the restaurant shot the robbery suspect at least shot twice, and three bullet casings were found at the scene. The robbery suspect was airlifted to an out of county hospital. The customer who shot the alleged robber is the holder of a locally issued concealed carry weapon permit, and was in Ukiah because his wife was potentially in labor, however, she was apparently at the hospital, and not present while the shooting occurred.
The robber, a 20-something-year-old male, was shot at close range by the concealed carrier. He quickly realized that the thug life wasn’t for him, and ran out of the store to safety, but collapsed shortly after. He was taken to the hospital and required surgery for his injuries.
And that’s all there is to it. We see these stories on a regular basis, and it’s always nice to see the good guy win and the bad guy lose.
