Armed Citizen Stops Attempted Convenience Store Robbery

“I got scared, I was shaking. I could lose my girl, for, just a simple job.” 

Alejandro Andrade Llamas drove to a North Las Vegas 7-Eleven when his wife failed to come home from work. There, he encountered police, employees and an armed citizen who had stopped an attempted robbery. 

According to local media reports, it all occurred just after 3 a.m., when Rashad Ryan burst into the store with a gun. That’s when a person working inside, but who is not a 7-Eleven employee, pulled his gun and fired, striking the suspect. Officer Ann Cavaricci told reporters, “In this case, there was an armed robbery going on and he felt that he needed to take action.”

Ryan, who is responsible for other area robberies, stumbled out of the store into the parking lot, where he was pronounced dead. Andrade Llamas fears for his wife were indeed warranted, as an employee was killed by a robber at the same store in 2010.
