On October 28, 71-year-old concealed carry permit holder Ronnie Lummus shot and killed a man who allegedly knocked his wife to the ground in an attempt to rob her.
The attempted robbery was reported in the parking lot of the Aldi Grocery Store on Forest Lane in Dallas, Texas.
Allegedly, Lummus and his wife were walking out of the grocery store when “36-year-old Mark Angel Carmillio approached them and grabbed a necklace off [Mrs. Lummus’] neck.” Police say Carmillio then knocked the woman down and was attempting to rob her when Mr. Lummus “pulled his gun and fired several shots,” according to WFAA 8.
One or more of the shots hit Carmillio as he tried to reach a getaway vehicle and escape.
The suspect was able to make it to the vehicle, but he died shortly after starting to drive away. The getaway car then rolled into a parked vehicle in the lot.
