It was a busy Saturday morning during the morning rush that a robber walked briskly through the front door and started demanding cash. However, one of the customers had his CCW on him and decided that this robbery would be this thief’s last mistake.
It happened at a North Charleston Waffle House at 6907 Dorchester Road when one armed customer thwarted a holdup just yesterday around 5 a.m. After the customer drew and fired his weapon, the thief was taken to the Medical University Hospital for his gunshot wound where he was later pronounced dead.
The police reached out to the public to help identify the would be thief by releasing a description of the man, young male, dark hair, 5 foot 9 inches tall, and around 150 pounds. While the hero of the story has not been identified, the entire work crew along with the customers expressed a great deal of gratitude for the quick actions of the responsible individual.
“He saved us, that’s what he did.”
One of the officers-not authorized to speak for the NCPD at the scene had the following to say about the events that tool place:
“It says something about firearms … for good people with firearms being in the right hands.”
No charges have been filed against the armed customer. The morning was spent by the working crew sweeping up the broken glass and getting things in order for an afternoon reopening.
The division manager, Brandon Rogers, was glad that nothing was stolen and that this is the first attempted robbery at this store since its opening one year ago.
“No one was hurt, which is the best part,” Rogers said. “No one was injured — besides the suspect.”
This is the way that things are supposed to be. Bad guy tries and dies. The good guy takes initiative to save himself and those around them by using his right to bear arms via loaded pistol. Tell us what you think about this hero!
