    NC shooting deemed as a good shoot.

    Goldsboro, N.C. — A customer who witnessed an armed robbery at a Goldsboro convenience and shot the suspect will not face charges in the incident, police said Thursday.

    Christopher Jamale Vann, 27, of 110 Highland Acres in Faison, was shot in the head during the robbery, which happened about 3:15 a.m. Tuesday at the Kangaroo Express on Grantham Street. Vann was listed in serious condition Thursday at Vidant Medical Center in Greenville.

    A female clerk told Goldsboro police that a man walked into the store, displayed a handgun and tried to rob the business. The customer, identified as Maurice Thomas Lewis, 26, of Goldsboro, saw the robbery in progress and shot the suspect once, police said.

    Goldsboro police consulted with the Wayne County District Attorney’s Office and determined no criminal charges will be filed against Lewis, whom they said is fully cooperating with the investigation. Police also said there was no physical altercation between Vann and Lewis before the shooting.

    Vann was wanted by the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms on outstanding drug and weapons charges, police said.

    He has 11 previous state convictions dating to 2004, including weapons, robbery and break-in charges, according state Division of Correction records. He has served four jail terms totaling nearly two years.

    This how I like a story to be written. We get the whole street address of the convict fugitive shoot in the commission of his crime but little information on the justified shooter. Though I don't know if would have given the shooters full name.

    Wanted by BATFE even. Sounds like he got the best retirement plan available in that line of work and finally cashed in.

    What did they want him for? To ask him to stop being a bad boy?

    Its not like they want to protect society from him. The only thing the Government wants him for is to use him as an excuse to pass more laws restricting the freedom of law abiding citizens.

    Robberies, break-ins, weapons, violations, and he spends two years total in jail. That's North Carolina for you. I think he's in for a longer vacation this time, though. And if the shooter had been using one of those .40-cal's everybody hates so much they'd have put a toe tag instead of handcuffs on this thug.

    The only problem I have is that now he'll be a tax-payer supported ward of the state in his vegetative home-served lobotomy condition. Too bad the GG didn't finish him.

    Well if he was wanted by BATFE then I'm sure that there was a reason beyond all of the stuff that he's already done time for. If for some reason, what you have stated is why they wanted him, then they should also throw into the argument that it was also a gun that stopped him. So I would call your argument a wash.

    Makes your heart bleed for states that don't have a Three Strikes type sentencing structure for repeat violent felons. When will they learn.

    Sorry if I did not make my point correctly. My point was that he should have been dealt with when they had him. Instead of just letting him back out into society to terrorize the honest folks. I have no confidence that if the BATFE had caught him they would have done any better at protecting society from him.

    Eleven convictions...four jail terms = very slow learner...perhaps he has learned something this time, but I doubt it.

    How do we know he wasn't? I saw nothing in the article that said what caliber gun the shooter used. Could have been a .380, or a 9MM or a .40 or even a .45.

    Roger that. But I guess if you've made the BATFE list you've got some explaining to do for yourself. I guess he wasn't a problem that a CCer couldn't take care of.
