Why We Carry: Man Fires Gun Into Pharmacy After Getting Into Argument With Employee

DEKALB COUNTY, GEORGIA — A man from Stone Mountain is in custody after allegedly firing shots during a dispute at a Tucker pharmacy on July 28. DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office reports that 30-year-old Malcolm Emmanuel Nicholas had an altercation with an individual at a pharmacy on LaVista Road before opening fire near an employee and three patrons.

On August 3, authorities apprehended Nicholas at a residence on Arbor Circle, Tucker. Currently, he’s detained at the DeKalb County Jail without bond and faces several charges of aggravated assault with a weapon.

Fortunately, no one was hurt in the incident, and the cause of the initial argument remains undisclosed.

Carrying a firearm, or other items for self-defense, coupled with de-escalation techniques and conflict avoidance can make a huge difference in whether or not you’re going home at the end of the day. One loose cannon at the pharmacy while you’re there to pick up a prescription could change your entire life.
