Police: Waffle House Robber with AK-47 Put on Life Support by Concealed Permit Holder

On July 12, DeSoto, Texas, police said they issued a report on a robber who entered a Waffle House with an AK-47, only to be shot and critically wounded by an armed customer with a handgun.

The incident occurred about 2:30 a.m., and according to The Dallas Morning News, police reports witness accounts that a 26-year-old man entered the Waffle House with an AK-47 and “robbed numerous people as well as the business.” One of the patrons was an armed concealed carry permit holder, and out of concern for his wife, he followed the armed robber into the parking lot — the concealed permit holder’s wife was on her way to the restaurant.

The concealed permit holder said he “called out” to get the robber’s attention and the robber turned, pointing the AK-47 at him. The permit holder “then shot the robber several times.”

The alleged robber — Antione Devon Cooper — was taken to a hospital and placed on life support. No charges were filed against the concealed permit holder.
