    Just Reported on Nashville, TN, FOX Channel 17...

    I haven't found a link yet, but as I understand the story: the owner of a Nashville discount tobacco outlet was being robbed when one of two BGs started beating him; the owner (or a clerk) struggled with the BG and the BG dropped his weapon. The good guy picked up the firearm and engaged the BGs (when the other BG engaged him)...one BG was killed and the other taken to the hospital with serious injuries. The owner had some cuts and scrapes, but nothing else reported. I'll try to find a link. Don Aarons, MNPD's spokesperson, was initially characterizing it as a justified shooting.

    If as described then a great result.

    Nothing better than dealing with BG's with their own darned gun - tho arguably the store owner could/should have had his own weapon on hand to shorten the whole proceedure quicker

    Awww, you make me look like a jerk. It could have been another murdered store owner.

    Looks to me like the BG's got thier azzes harmoniously handed to them, and for now they are both peacefull , one foreaver .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .

    It's true...I live here and read it in the locals the other day. Unfotunately, 3 days earlier another convienience store owner who fought back was killed.

    Freaking thugs........the guy was evidently a super nice community type.....knew everyone's name, etc.

    I just don't understand poor old Mr Ghorbani fighting back repeatedly with no weapon at all. I mean it appears from that story he was robbed a number of times and always fought armed gunmen without ever arming himself. And got killed in the end for it. May he rest in peace... but sheesh...
