Boss Shoots Man Who Held Employees Hostage

posted on November 12, 2015

Travis Edenfield and Joseph Shedd were at work unloading equipment at a Macon, Ga., building when they were allegedly approached by two armed men demanding money. WMAZ reports that the suspects then forced Edenfield and Shedd into their truck and drove them to an ATM to draw out more cash. When this effort failed, they told the hostages to call their boss, Brian Hinkle, and instruct him to bring cash. 

Hinkle showed up with the money as directed, but he also brought a firearm. After the suspects sent Edenfield over to Hinkle’s car to pick up the cash, one of them opened fire on both men. Hinkle shot back, killing the shooter.

The second suspect later turned himself in to police and is being charged with murder due to his accomplice’s death. Hinkle has not been charged for his actions in defense of himself and his employees.
