Armed Citizen® Today The owner of a shooting range and gun store in Stettin, Wis., was forced to defend himself and his business when two armed robbers attempted to burglarize the store on Nov. 15, 2020.
The incident started that Sunday evening when two armed men forced their way into the business by breaking through the windows. The business owner was in his back office and heard the noise of the forced entry. The owner then grabbed a rifle and went toward the entryway to investigate.
There, he was confronted by the two armed robbers. When confronted by the two armed trespassers, the owner of the business opened fire, prompting the two would-be robbers to flee. The police were called shortly after at 10:53 p.m. One of the robbers and a getaway driver were later arrested. One of the robbers remains at large. (wausaudailyherald.com, Wausau, Wis., 11/16/2020)
