Armed Woman Stops Robber At Arizona Convenience Store

posted on August 3, 2016

Carol Miracle was at an Arizona Circle K convenience store at 1 a.m. on Monday when a man walked up, put a gun to her head and attempted to rob her. Unfortunately for the would-be robber, Miracle was carrying her own concealed firearm.

Glendale police spokeswoman Officer Tiffany Smith told The Arizona Republic that when Miracle, 23, was approached by the armed assailant, she drew her own gun and shot him in fear for her life. The attacker, 27-year-old Frank Taylor, died at the scene.

After the shooting, Miracle called 911 operators from her home to inform law enforcement about what had taken place. During the investigation, witnesses confirmed Miracle’s story that Taylor attempted to rob her at gunpoint before she fired her gun. The Maricopa County Attorney’s Office is still investigating the incident.
