Armed Customer Stops Attack At Michigan Party Store

For one lawbreaker, the party is most definitely over.

Holland Police say that a 43-year-old man walked into a party store late Thursday night to find another customer assaulting a female employee. As the customer stepped in to break up the attack, the suspect suddenly turned and charged in his direction. But what the attacker didn’t know was that the customer was carrying his concealed pistol license, as well as his gun. As the suspect approached, he was shot twice and is now listed in critical condition at a local hospital.

According to the owner of the One Stop shop, the suspect was the woman’s 29-year-old ex-boyfriend, and he had just begun the assault when the customer walked in. Investigators say the customer was legally carrying his gun and acted in self-defense, which witnesses confirmed, so there was no arrest made at the scene.
