Armed Citizen Stops Store Robbery

An armed man who tried to rob a Memphis, Tenn., business on Tuesday was shot and killed in the process, leaving others in the crowded shop unhurt.

According to local media, the 25-year-old man tried to rob the crowded Extreme Gear store in the middle of the day. But before he could take anything, he was shot by either an armed customer or employee, ending the robbery.

“The young people don't believe in nothing but to take, and that's it,” Reverend Amos Connors, who was at the location to pick up a suit, told WMC Action News. “God didn't put us here to take from one another. I'm not going to take nothing from you, because it don't belong to me.”
