When a man approached Jordan’s BBQ in Zephyrhills, Fla., demanding money, the owner was willing to help. He told the man he could earn some cash by helping unload a truck. However, the stranger was looking for something easier. “He makes a statement give me the F-ing money … ‘I want it all,’” Pasco Sheriff Chris Nocco told reporters.
Jordan’s son, Malick, and his brothers noticed something chrome in the man’s pocket and feared the worst. “He’s not going to try four big guys with a knife, so he got to have a gun,” Malick said. That’s when the owner pulled out his own gun and fired in self-defense, telling officers, “I looked at my brother, it was him or us.”
They immediately called 911, but the man died moments later. The owner says their hearts go out to the robber’s family. “We’re gonna reach out … and if we can help them with Christmas, we’ll do that.”
