Ohio Dairy Mart Employee Ends Armed Robbery With Personal Firearm

posted on November 19, 2016

An employee of an ice cream store in Garfield Heights, Ohio, this week used his firearm to stop an attempted robbery—cold.

Late Wednesday evening a robber burst into the store, pointed a gun at the employee and demanded money. The employee kept his cool, drew his own firearm and fired once, sending the intruder out the front door without any cash. 

A short time later detectives spotted a man matching the robber’s description, but he slipped away before officers could make an arrest. Another employee of the Dairy Mart was in a back room of the store at the time, though he was wearing headphones and never heard the skirmish. Both employees were unharmed during the encounter. Investigators were hoping surveillance cameras could provide a lead, but the store was unable to provide any video.
