Customer Shoots Armed Robber in Family Dollar

Customer Shoots Armed Robber in Family Dollar

On November 13, an armed customer in a Mobile, AL Family Dollar store foiled a robbery by shooting “the suspect multiple times.” 

According to WPMI, “two employees…[at the store] were unloading a truck, when a pair of armed robbers approached them. One of the criminals forced one of the employees to the front of the store, past terrified customers, and demanded that the employee open the safe.” 

At that point, a customer drew his own gun, shooting the robber “and causing his accomplice to flee.” According to Local15TV, the customer shot “the suspect multiple times.”

A customer who was inside the store when the robbery was foiled thanked the armed citizen for intervening: “I want to say thank you, thank you, thank you, from the bottom of my heart and God bless you.”
