The owner of a used car lot in Marlin, Texas was cool and calm when an armed criminal stormed into his business and demanded money. But because this business owner was a gun owner the crook didn’t get a dime.
According to KXXV
The owner of the used car dealership, Jimmy Mitchell, says the suspect walked into his business and demanded a specific bag of money. Mitchell says this isn’t first time the suspect tried to steal from him, so he tried to calm the thief down.
“I called him by name, who I recognized him to be. And told him ‘This was b.s., don’t be doing this. I tried to talk him down,'” Mitchell said.
He then fired two shots at the owner, but missed with both shots. Mitchell yelled back at the suspect before agreeing to his demands.
“[He] walks up to my desk, holds up a gun right between my eyes and says ‘gimme the money bag.’ I said ‘No I changed my mind. Just go ahead and kill me. Just kill me. I am not going to give you the money bag,'” Mitchell said.
The suspect got angry and called for one of Mitchell’s friends to help him out. That’s when Mitchell decided to make his move.
“He made a grave mistake…he turned his back on me. That ole’ 45 come out,” Mitchell said.
Mitchell chased the would-be-thief out of the store, firing 4 shots with his .45. He is confident that local law enforcement will catch the suspect and throw him behind bars.
“I think he was a whole lot more nervous than I was…but he didn’t hit me,” Mitchell said.
No one was injured in the incident but the crook didn’t get away with anything but a heart attack and possibly some soiled pants. Yet another defensive gun use that stopped a crime and saved a law abiding citizen.
