N.C. Bingo Hall Night Manager Fatally Shoots Armed Robber

posted on April 8, 2017

On Wednesday, a manager at Coliseum Bingo and Games was preparing for the day ahead when two armed robbers stormed in at 5 a.m. and began threatening everyone. So the 63-year-old supervisor calmly drew his gun, stepped forward and confronted the thugs. 

The Winston-Salem Journal reports that shots were then exchanged between the suspects and the manager. The manager was hit in the shoulder, suffering minor injuries. One of the suspects—22-year-old Deshaun Rashaud Fisher-McCullum—was also struck, causing both would-be robbers to quickly take flight. Authorities found Fisher-McCullum several yards from the business, fatally wounded, while the second suspect remains at large. 

Neighboring tenants of the Coliseum were shaken. “It’s really a shame that people go to work in the morning and work hard at their jobs,” said Tonya Bess, owner of the Prime Tyme Soul Café. “And youth think they can take stuff that doesn’t belong to them. They don’t realize the consequences of their actions.”

If gun-control advocates were honest, they would look at what really makes Americans safer, but they aren't interested in this. In reality, they're far more interested in something else.
