“I’d Have Shot Him, Too”

posted on April 9, 2015

The owner of Miller Auto Sales in Chattanooga, Tenn., had a habit of keeping a gun handy. Good thing, too, as it turned out. Alan Miller used that gun to stop an armed, masked man who was attempting to rob his business in the middle of the day. The suspect was shot once and taken to a hospital for non-life threatening wounds.


One of the shop’s customers, Larry Essex, said robberies were frequent in that area and didn’t blame Miller at all. “I’d have shot him, too,” he declared.
