    Good: Pharmacy owners survive shooting, kills gang member

    Chalk one up for the good guys.

    The pharmacy owner Bryan Lee said he left the back door of his store unlocked for a customer stopping by after business hours. Shortly after the customer left, Lee said two men in ski-masks barged in through the back door and started shooting.

    The mother and son said they ducked behind the counter as bullets kept flying. One of them hit the mother in the leg. "It was not a robbery so much as an execution," Lee said. "It was an attempted assassination, they didn't make any demands, they simply came in, reached over, and it was basically shooting us almost in the back of the head.They shot my mother and almost shot me, I was just surrounded by holes."

    Lee grabbed a gun and started shooting at one of the two suspects.

    Sounds like the "Friend" set him up,just too coincidental that the thugs knew to be in that place at that time to go in and try to kill them after the store was closed

    Good shooting. Too bad he didn't get the other one... Hopefully mom makes a speedy recovery and can return to work without too much mental/physical trauma.

    Good for him!

    Another example of how the only thing standing between the BG's bullets and their heads was a GG with a gun. They'd almost certainly all have been murdered had he not been capable of mounting an effective defense.

    And yet state after "might-never issue" state seeks to ask what "valid" need a citizen has for having a firearm or carrying one. As if saving innocent lives isn't sufficient cause.

    Kudos to the family for surviving their execution.

    Rot in Hades you murderous perps (who committed these crimes). May you insult the wrong (right) thug in prison, and that right quick.

    Good shooting. Hope mom recovers with no lasting effects. Minus one scumbag. Too bad the other one will be put into the system. If he's not dealt with harshly (and the odds are he won't) you can be sure he'll visit the pharmacy again. Welcome to America.

    Lee set himself up for this by leaving the rear entry open/unlocked.

    This was my first reaction, too. I hope the 'friend' gets an interview from the investigators.

    Good. That's exactly what should happen, every single time.

    Sad, that in many states no such mechanism exists (for "felony" [associate dies] murder charges) or is reliably leveraged by the DA.
