    Outstanding! Good for the CHP holder. Guess if he ever caught any slack from his wife for carrying. He won't anymore. Wonder if the store management gave him a hassle about being there while his wife was working. Good job taking care of business.

    Good ending to bad story. I was hoping to see the security cam video of the incident but good report nonetheless.

    the guy pointed the gun at the wife and pulled the trigger and the husband let him walk out of there with only 3 holes in him?...that must have taken some restraint....

    must have been a bit of a surprise for the kid...

    BG is shot by customer legally carrying a handgun.

    I knew our Sheriff was a good one! I love his comments at the end of this article.

    http://www.mtairynews.com/view/full_...home_news_lead

    A man who pointed a gun at a store clerk Tuesday night was arrested later after officers found him at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center.

    Anthony Eric Hill, 26, of 1319 Hauser Road, Pinnacle, was arrested at the hospital Tuesday night and charged with felony armed robbery and felony assault by pointing a gun. His bond is $150,000 secured.

    Hill showed up at the hospital shortly after he fled the scene of Neighbors Fuel Center on U.S. 52, where he allegedly attempted to shoot a clerk but was stopped by a customer who shot him three times. When Hill arrived at the hospital, staff contacted the Winston-Salem Police Department. Surry County Sheriff Graham Atkinson said his office already had been in contact with Forsyth County officers to be on the lookout for someone with gunshot wounds. Winston-Salem officers stayed at the hospital with Hill until Surry County deputies arrived and took him into custody.

    The incident that led to Hill’s arrest took place at the Neighbors store south of Mount Airy close to 9 p.m. on Tuesday when Hill entered the convenience store wearing a bandana or cloth over his face. The sheriff said that according to witnesses, Hill pointed a handgun at the clerk and attempted to fire it. When the gun didn’t fire, Hill attempted to cock it again.

    The clerk’s husband was sitting at the end of the counter on a stool when it happened, and he shot Hill three times with his handgun. Hill ran out of the store and then drove or was driven to the hospital. He did not get away with any stolen property.

    Atkinson said Hill showed up at the medical center shortly after the incident with three gunshot wounds: one to his arm, leg and hip. The wounds were not critical. After being treated and released by the hospital, officers arrested Hill.

    No charges will be issued against the husband, Atkinson said. It is not illegal to carry a handgun in a convenience store. After talking to witnesses and viewing footage of the incident filmed by the store camera, Atkinson said he feels certain that Hill intended to shoot the clerk.

    “(The husband) was in a bad situation. He did the right thing. He probably saved her life,” said Atkinson.

    The sheriff said the man who shot Hill did not wish to receive any attention for the incident. He was a deputy for the sheriff’s office many years ago. Atkinson said the man often can be seen chatting with people and sipping a cup of coffee at the convenience store where his wife works.

    Of the man’s response, Atkinson said, “I hope that it sends a really strong message to anyone that’s thinking about going out and doing something stupid that there are people out there who are legally carrying firearms and that they have the right to protect themselves or another person.”

    The investigation still is ongoing. Atkinson said Hill is a suspect in other crimes in the region. Hill is a convicted felon with previous charges, most of them related to property crimes.

    Can't watch the video, but found a related news story here:

    http://www.wxii12.com/r/25113136/detail.html

    It sounds like the guy fully intended to kill someone. Not just incidental to the robbery, but it sounds like he fully intended to take someone's life that day. Lucky the husband was there, and very lucky the gun misfired.

    Or the guy developed rocket packs on his sneakers as soon as he was shot the first time.

    What, he didn't call 911 and tell them "He's holding a gun to the clerk, he pulled the trigger, it went "click." He's trying to re cock the gun now... He's wearing a bandanna or cloth around his face. Please hurry, my wife is the clerk. how soon will you be here? Oh gosh, he's shot her now. Now he's aiming the gun at me... <BANG> Oh, I think I've been shot, too... Are you coming? He's about 6 feet tall, he stepped in my wife's blood, you should be able to track him... Unhhhh Hurry, please."

    Being a good witness is key, notice how he gave a description of the BG and how he related important information enabling the police to track the suspect when they arrived...

    Nope, he just shot the guy.. what about the civil liability? What about the lost income for the BG? sheesh, didn't he think things thru before he pulled the trigger?


    Good for him... Next time go for the head shot... save us all a lot of time... and clean one more "good son, never hurt nobody, his babies won't have a dad now..." Scum off the streets.
    Rats!
    It could be worse!
    I suppose

    Not so much fault as the frequently heard, "We don't recommend this sort of action.", crap.
