A convenience store employee in Ohio is glad he was carrying his concealed weapon last Wednesday morning when two robbers entered the store and began firing a gun at him.
The clerk was working at Sami Quick Stop in Youngstown just after midnight when 17-year-old Ja’Braelyn Bunn, armed with a rifle, and 17-year-old Kimani Hodges came into the store and demanded money from the register.
Bunn revealed his rifle and shot at the clerk who is believed to be in his 20’s. But his shot missed and the clerk who was a CCW permit holder pulled out his own gun and fired at the suspect. The teen was hit in the side and dropped his gun.
According to WKBN in Youngstown,
“He demanded the clerk to give him some money. The clerk felt threatened and had a lawful CCW permit, and shot at the suspect,” said Struthers Police Chief Tim Roddy.
Both teens ran from the store, but were caught a short time later.
Bunn was treated at St. Elizabeth Health Center. Hodges is being held at the Mahoning County Juvenile Justice Center. Both are facing charges.
As for the clerk, police are calling the shooting justified.
“In the right situation, someone who is responsible and very knowledgeable with a weapon, they have the right to protect themselves,” said Roddy.
It wasn’t gun control that saved the clerk’s life and stopped this crime from being carried out. It was his gun. But don’t look for this story to be plastered all over any of the major news outlets.
