Tulsa Gas Station Owner Shoots Attacker

posted on April 8, 2016

A gas station owner in Tulsa, Okla., shot a man who entered the store with a makeshift weapon and began throwing trashcans and threatening the owner and store patrons.

According to local police, the man apparently had a disagreement with the owner on Saturday, then returned to the store on Sunday swinging a rope or belt with a heavy piece of metal on the end. He also threw trashcans around the station parking lot. Feeling threatened, the store owner shot the man once, ending the episode. 

“Whatever it was about, I don’t think it was worth coming back at 2 o’clock the next day to continue the argument,” Tulsa Police Sgt. Kurt Dodd told local media. The man is listed in stable condition at a local hospital.
