    Good for him, but what does this mean?

    "
    McCullough has a valid permit to carry a gun, however, he was cited for carrying a concealed weapon.
    "

    Not sure the reporters understood exactly what happened or the laws involved.

    I'm gonna go out on a limb here and ask: Was the Walgreen's store "posted"?

    Lets see if nbc nightly news covers this story...another thug off the streets.
    You may not like guns. You may choose not to own one. That is your right.
    You might not believe in God. That is your choice.
    However, if someone breaks into your home at 3AM the first two things you are going to do are:
    1) Call someone with a gun.
    2)Pray they get there in time." - A wise man

    I don't understand the part about having a valid permit to carry a gun and then being arrested for concealed carry. Sounds like a bit of reporter confusion.

    I called Walgrens Corporate Offices a few months prior to this post due to an inquiry from a different forum. The answer was somewhat like Starbucks stance, if it is legal in your state Walgrens does not have a problem with it.

    The story:

    Omaha police have made one arrest in connection with a robbery Monday night at a Benson Walgreens in which one person was killed.

    Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine tells Channel Six News the dead person has been identified as 18-year-old Marquail Thomas of Omaha.

    The second suspect is identified as 17 year old Angelo Douglas of 3716 N. 24th. Police records indicate he was arrested for robbery and use of a weapon to commit a felony.

    Officers have also cited the person who shot and killed one alleged robber, and subdued the second.

    The shooting happened just before 9pm at the Walgreen's at 61st and NW Radial Highway.

    Investigators say that two masked suspects entered the Walgreen’s, one armed with a shotgun. The armed suspect had leveled the gun at customers.

    One of the customers at the register saw the suspect point the shotgun in the direction of the register where there were several others standing.

    That customer has been identified as Harry McCullough, III of Omaha.

    Investigators say he drew a handgun from the waistband of his pants and discharged it at Thomas, who was hit multiple times.

    Thomas was able to flee from the store but collapsed on the north side of the business. He was transported to the Creighton University Medical Center where he died.

    McCullough has a valid permit to carry a gun, however, he was cited for carrying a concealed weapon.

    Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine says McCullough was justified in the shooting based on the actions of the suspects and will not face charges in Thomas' death.

    Good video report as well... To everyone on the video he was a hero.

    Why gig the poor guy for a misdemeanor? He has a valid permit to carry a gun, but they are gonna gig him because it was concealed?

    That should be a discretionary call for the prosecutor, and as far as I'm concerned the prosecutor failed miserably!

    Acording to the coments on the site:

    Omaha Citizen- It appears he did not have a CCW permit, but instead had a permit which allowed him to open carry, meaning he could carry the gun on him legally as long as it was open and visible. Once he concealled it he was in violation of the CCW law. I wonder why he had not gone the extra step to get his CCW permit.
    Being from an OC State I'm amazed. Anyone here on DC know the State Law on this issue?
