Robbery Foiled By Armed Citizen

posted on September 1, 2015

A 19-year-old woman and another individual walked into a liquor store in Baltimore, Md., on Saturday night. She waved a handgun and announced that the store was being robbed. Perhaps tired of the ongoing violence in Charm City—perhaps fearful for the lives of those in the store—one of the Starlight Liquor Store’s employees was having none of it. This individual refused to be a victim.

The employee immediately fired at the woman and shot her several times. She was taken to an area hospital and is in critical condition. The other suspect fled the scene and remains at large. But thanks to the quick reaction of this armed citizen, there was one less violent crime to add to Baltimore’s tally over the weekend.
