    Hmmmm Ok, I believe you maybe.


    So I don't get it. They can't find the guy who shot the robber? It sure seems like they would know where the robber is.

    If it was me (the shooter), I'd do my damnedest to keep my name out of the papers as well.

    The robber was taken to Wayne Memorial Hospital and then flown to Vidant Medical Center in Greenville. Police said they have not been able to positively determine his identity.
    sounds to me like they can't ID the robber.... not the shooter

    "...The male customer shot the robber once."


    Anybody worth shooting once deserves at least a double tap...perhaps more.

    That would be an unexpected situation to walk into...only a moment to get it together and react.
    Good job on the part of the customer...

    Even skipped 2 to COM and went right for the noodle. One shot stopper. Bet his head is on a swivel next robbery. It'll happen again I'm sure.
