Roseville police said a 26-year-old man who was stopped on suspicion of shoplifting at Home Depot store stabbed a loss prevention worker with a dirty syringe.
The incident happened Monday evening at the store on 13 Mile Road near Little Mack Avenue.
Police said the suspect became violent when two workers stopped him and "pulled a concealed syringe from his jacket and using the syringe as a weapon began to swing it about in a slashing motion."
One of the workers was stabbed several times with the "contaminated needle," police said.
A customer, who had a concealed pistol license, was in the store saw what was happening.
Police said the customer pulled his weapon on the suspect and ordered him to drop the syringe.
"Ideals are peaceful. History is violent."

What with all the different deadly bugs out there that can be transmitted through the use of dirty needles the perp is lucky he didn't get a one way ticket to boot hill.
Man you just wouldn't know what that was contaminated with. The fact that he CARRIES a old syringe gives you a pretty good idea.
Justifiable reason to shoot if I'm on your jury.
I have a very strict gun control policy: if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it.
Oddly enough, the thought of contracting some kind of life altering disease in this way scares me more than a BG with a gun.

Good on the CPL holder. That's a good result to an intervention.

In case any dont know, that could have been a perfectly sterile syringe and needle...and it would have still killed you, if he injected air into you.
Im ready for our tax dollars to fund some mental hospitals again, and start filling them up with these headline making nuts.
With IV drug users then HIV and Hep-C are huge concerns. Hep-C can live a long time on the outside of a dirty needle.
Certainly a situation that justified a draw. The CCer appears to have played it well - he broke off the attack, held the assailant at bay until police arrived and had the presence of mind not to shoot the assailant as he tried to run away. Well done IMHO.
What I found particularly interesting is the feedback in the comments section of the website. There aren't too may comments, but what is there strongly favors the CCer. I find this particularly refreshing. Of course it could change over time, but I am happy to see that the general population supports the CCer in this one and sees the benefit of carrying.
