Subway Restaurant Employee Shoots Armed Robber

posted on March 9, 2017

Monday morning, a would-be robber paid a visit to a Georgia Subway restaurant, just trying to score a little bread. What he got instead was a bullet in the chest. 

Acworth, Ga., police officer Mark Cheatham told WSB-TV 5 that 20-year-old Deandre Antonio Yates stormed into the restaurant waving a handgun and demanding cash, but when he jumped behind the counter, the situation turned. 

“An employee of Subway was able to retrieve a personal firearm and use it against the suspect, striking him once in the chest,” Cheatham said. The officer added that after he staggered away, “The suspect was next seen at the urgent care, so getting from the scene to urgent care is still under investigation.” Yates survived surgery, and has been charged with aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during a crime. The Subway employee was questioned and released, and the store was open again a few hours later.
