2nd Amendment in Action: Greed, a Nine, and the Will to Survive; Wounded Clerk Returns Fire And Kills Robber

A convenience store owner was shot during a robbery on Nov. 11 in Bassfield, Mississippi, but then turned the tables and opened fire on the robber shooting him at least 10 times.

It was in the early morning hours when the suspect, armed with a gun, walked into the Get and Go convenience store and demanded the clerk hand over the store’s cash, WDAM reports. But before the clerk could collect all of the cash, the robber shot the clerk in the leg. store robbery

The suspect then left the store, but apparently got greedy and decided to return moments later to grab the rest of the cash that was left behind. However, the suspect’s greediness would prove to be a fatal flaw.

Within those moments that the suspect walked out of the store, the clerk was able to retrieve his 9mm handgun, and when the robber walked back inside, the clerk opened fire. When officers arrived, the suspect was pronounced dead at the scene.

According to Jefferson David County Coroner Jimmy Slater, the suspect, identified as 35-year-old LeRobert Young of Bassfield, had 11 to 13 gunshot wounds.

The store clerk was transported to a local hospital where he underwent surgery and is expected to make a full recovery.

No charges are expected to be filed against the clerk.

    We need to see more of these stories reported. There must be at least 50-100 just like it that are being covered up to prevent the 2cnd Ammendment rights from gaining ground.
    Why did he only shoot the guy 13 times? The clip was out of ammo. jwstx

    I believe that the anti-gun movement will try to use this as an example why firearms with high capacity magazines should be outlawed. Heaven forbid he shot the robber/assailant 11 to 13 times! I was in law-enforcement for 20 years and all the training I received enforced the rule that you continue to use force until the force being used against you ceases. The clerk was clearly in fear for their life having been shot (after giving the money demanded), and with the assailant returning again. I say bravo to that clerk!
