The Armed Citizen® August 2, 2019

In Baton Rouge, La., an employee at a grocery store was working when a masked man entered early in the morning. The robber had a gun and demanded the employees hand over money or they would be shot. One employee grabbed a gun and fired as the armed robber tried to jump over the counter where the employee was. The employee shot the robber, who collapsed on the floor after being struck in the side. Paramedics arrived on scene to transport the injured man to a hospital, where he later died. The clerk was not charged by police, who considered it a self-defense case. (wbrz.com, Baton Rouge, La., 5/20/19)
