When a would-be robber attempted a hold-up, he was carefully ushered out the door. When he came back a second time, he left in a car, clutching a gunshot wound.
The New Orleans Police Department says David Vaughn walked into the Triangle Deli and gas station on New Year’s Eve—then showed a gun to a cashier behind the counter and demanded money. But the employee grabbed his own gun and escorted Vaughn out of the store, ending the robbery attempt.
However, at around 12:20 a.m. on Sunday, three employees of the deli recognized Vaughn as he returned to the establishment. KLSA News 12 reported that one employee then shot Vaughn, while another wrestled him to the ground and the third took the suspect’s gun. Vaughn was transported to a nearby hospital by an accomplice, where he was treated and arrested for attempted robbery.
