    Gates Co NC BREAKING: Beaten store clerk 2 for 2; 1st shot over the shoulder

    Sheriff: Clerk shoots, kills two men attempting to rob store | WTKR.com

    Watching multiple news reports now.

    Kicked and beaten, on the floor, grabs shelf gun and hits the first blindly, the second fires from the door, clerk returns fire.

    First found inside, second in the woods, both deceased.

    Wow! Scary time for the clerk... he'll be dealing with the adrenaline dump for a couple of days, but at least he's alive.

    I wonder if our hero had any training, or if he was just seriously motivated to survive and was extraordinarily lucky.

    Meanwhile, I bet within 24 hours some friends or family of the deceased will be quoted in print or in electronic media decrying the "brutal violence" meted out to the BGs, with bonus points added for "he/they were just turning their lives around" or "they had to rob to feed their babies."

    North Carolina is a dangerous state and has loads of criminals looking for the advantage to get over on someone...judges, lawyers and the NC parole system has continued to play soft to these repeaters...
    The police are not there to protect you from crime, they are there to arrest the guy after the crime has been committed, assuming they find him. It is your responsibility to protect yourself and your family.

    Well, not THESE offenders. Good on the clerk for retiring these guys from their chosen career.

    "Two men are dead after they allegedly beat up and tried to rob the clerk at a general store on Acorn Hill Road in Hobbsville."

    Congrats to the clerk for 'allegedly' putting two repeat offenders into the dead offenders category.

    Eddie and Quinten Felton. Tracked this down from the comments section on one of the stories about the robbery gone good.

    It's good to see a news report that accurately identifies the real victim. I can't count the number of times I've read the BG was the victim.

    Something sometimes happens in these cases that does not meet the eye: Police friends say some of the teenagers who commit these violent crimes have adult mentors who transport them to the scene. In this case no car was found: An adult accomplice may have taken those guys to the crime scene and left when the shooting started. Case in point: The OK City pharmacy shooting where the teenage perps involved had two adult mentors.

    The clerk saved our state a fortune in lawyer fees and prison expenses to house these thugs. He deserves an award.

    Amen to that. The country is going bankrupt and prisons are a revolving door. Two in the ground saves a boat load of money for the taxpayers!

    At least on the 2nd profile, she seems to be asking for compassion for the families and is bewildered by the BGs' actions, not the clerk's. Nothing wrong with that.

    Lucky shot Or Israeli training? And I quote “after he was kick and beaten he grabbed a gun and made a no look shot, basically behind his back and hit the robber in the stomach then shot the other robber”

    I am not sure what he had for breakfast but I want some….WOW!
