Senior Citizen Fights Off Armed Robber

posted on February 3, 2016

When an armed robber entered a Buckhead, Ga., convenience store owned by a 71-year-old woman, he likely thought it would be an easy score. Moments later, his thinking had changed.

A man 50 years her junior entered Janet Willis’ convenience store last Thursday morning and demanded her car keys. When Willis pressed a panic button under the counter, the man saw her. “He said, ‘I have killed my mother,’ then he mumbled something and said he had stolen a van and he was going to kill me if I didn’t give him the keys,” the 5-foot, 1-inch Willis told police. 

But when the armed robber turned to look at another customer, Willis grabbed her 9 mm pistol and pointed it at the robber. “When he turned around I said ‘I’ll blow your guts all over this store,’” the feisty senior said. The man then ran out of the store as fast as he could.
