Vietnam Vet Steps In To Prevent Armed Robbery

posted on July 21, 2015

A Vietnam veteran continued to defend American citizens, this time preventing an armed robbery. It happened in Sycamore, Ga., where Don Rogers was inside a convenience store getting change for a $20 when he heard someone say, “Put the money in the bag.” 

Rogers looked up to spot a young male pointing a gun at the clerk. Rogers pulled out his concealed-carry firearm and, when the robber turned his way, he fired before the robber could. He got in two more shots before 18-year-old Devin Burton fled into a car driven by 17-year-old Marleigh Agner.

Both suspects were eventually captured—Burton is in critical condition in a Macon hospital and Agner is in jail charged with party to armed robbery. Rogers is just grateful it all ended well. “I was hoping nothing like this would ever happen, but I was glad I had my weapon with me,” said Rogers.
