Armed Car Salesman Goes After Car Thief, Fires Shot At Fleeing Suspect


A criminal on the run was trying to score a new vehicle, which he did, but it wasn’t the easiest thing to do. After he forced a 70-year-old test driver and employee out of the vehicle he wanted to take control of, an armed employee came out and pointed a gun in his direction.

I can’t even say for sure if the bad guy saw the gun, but I’m certain he heard the shot that was fired. Bad guy not hit, and he floors it outta there.

The fired shot is questionable, and we as armed citizens need to keep things in check in the heat of the moment. Once no lives are in danger and the threat is leaving, restraint on the part of an armed citizen needs to be shown. According to the article, the employee isn’t going to be facing any charges, luckily.

How would you have handled this situation?
