Repost, been on here a few times before....
Yes, I think it was a good shoot, although poorly planned. His firing lane was too close to the bystanders (woman with child), and he continued firing after the BG was fleeing. But as I recall it was called justified, and I agree.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.

Justified but not very smart. That kid was damn close to the firing lane
Looks like he had a pocket pistol. No holster. Good cover behind the other clerk as he drew. The BG never knew what hit him.
Did he hit him? (I have missed close shots. Kind of embarrassing.)
And as to continue shooting as he is fleeing, what if the BG turned around and fired back a few rounds. As long as he is in the room, I would consider him a threat.
Preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse or Rapture....whichever comes first.
They said the BG was hit 3 times and lived.
I saw this video quite awhile ago, and seem to have read somewhere that the shooter was a NRA instructor.
I am still amazing that the woman holding the kid didn't dive for the floor.

Seen before...no different perception...the guy was out the door running like crazy...I personally don't think it was a good shoot from a defensive view.
Good Shoot (period)

The gun shot was a GLOCK 23 filled with Gold Dots.
As for the woman and child being to close, it only appears that way b/c of the camera and the angle in which it's placed.
My view...carrying a weapon is a tremendous responsibility. When carrying...in many ways you are held to a higher standard. The same can be said of LEOs. If this was a LEO and the guy was running, well past the door, would a LEO continue to shoot? I know, I know...I am bound to hear the..."but he could come back crowd" or "he could turn and fire back crowd"...but to me, there is a fine line between "defensive" and "offensive"...he clearly was on the offensive.

Good shoot!! From camera angle looks like the kid was a bit close... I just can't believe that mother just stood there, never even flinched at the gunshots. Anyone else would have backed away as soon as the robber walked in.
