Louisiana Customer Stops Attack On Clerk

posted on April 6, 2016

A customer carrying a firearm in a Louisiana convenience store shot and killed a “highly agitated” customer who was berating the store clerk and then attacked the armed customer when he intervened.

According to police, a man who appeared to be in a “highly agitated state” entered the Mandeville, La., store, made a purchase, then began berating the clerk using racial slurs. He left the store, but then re-entered several times, each time becoming more aggressive.

The armed customer attempted to calm the situation and followed the man out of the store to get his license plate number, which made the agitated customer even more irate. When he attacked the armed customer, backing him into the store and into a corner, the other customer shot several times, ending the attack.
