Customer shoots robber dead

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -

Instead of saving money at a Northside dollar store, a 57-year-old grandfather ends up saving the day.

The man was doing some late-night shopping at the Dollar General store on Dunn Avenue when all of the sudden, two men stormed in and tried robbing it.

Unfortunately for one of them, the man happens to have a concealed weapons permit, and Lt. Rob Schoonover with the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office says the man wasted no time springing into action.

"There was a citizen who had a concealed firearms permit that was inside the store as a customer," says Lt. Schoonover. "He fired at the suspect, striking him and killing him."

The other robber ended up getting away -- he is described by police as a black male about 6 feet tall and wearing a blue bandana. He drove off in a small SUV.

There are no charges pending against the customer.

Great to see this as news!
Sad to see some of the comments.
Really gives us a bad name when someone is trying to give us a good one.

I think we should ban all Dollar General stores for attracting poor innocent boys to a life of crime. :sarcasm

Dumba$$ move:
1) being a thief
2) robbing a dollar store. Everything there is worth a dollar.... How much can the store possibly have on hand for you to take.

Lets also remember when they find the other perp he will be charged with felony murder.
Florida law. Remember the retired Marine who shot the guys robbing the Subway restaurant?
The one who lived was charged with the murder of his buddy.

Sometimes the law is actually against the criminals

If this happened in New York the guy who shot the perp and saved everyones life would be sued for wrongful death by the dirtballs family. We live in a Liberal sinkhole........
