Oconee video store robbed || OnlineAthens.com
No one got hurt, and the thief got away.
The reason this stands out to me is... I almost went to get my haircut in that shopping center the morning of this incident. My girlfriend probably would have tagged along, and usually swings into blockbuster to browse around while she is waiting. She could have easily been a potential victim - held at gunpoint - in this whole scenario. I'm glad that I ended up, NOT going and getting my hair cut that morning.
Also, I had to take a step back and think about what I would have done if I was in the store when something like that happened. Would I shoot? Hide and call 911? Hard to know these things without actually being there. Who knows if a BG is going to pull the trigger...
