Armed Bystander Shoots Convenience Store Robber

posted on June 17, 2015

A man who allegedly pulled a 9 mm handgun on a female convenience store clerk in Knoxville, Tenn., is dead—and the employee is unhurt—following the actions of a courageous bystander. The armed citizen, identified as a friend of the clerk, was sitting in his car when he witnessed the robbery occurring. He entered the store and fired one shot, hitting the assailant.

Police officers said that no charges will be pressed, and a country prosecutor confirmed that Tennessee law fully recognizes the right of a third-party individual to defend the safety of someone being threatened by an armed attacker.
