    Suspect Shot During Robbery Attempt at Hampton Food Lion

    ExSoldier762's note: Rent-A-Cops are still citizen's.....right?

    Hampton police say a man attempting to hold up a grocery store was shot by a store security guard Monday night.

    The 19-year old suspect, identified as Caleb Joshua Carr of the 3500 block of Kecoughtan Road, is in intensive care with a gunshot wound to the head. He is listed in stable condition.

    According to authorities, it was around 10:42pm when the guard inside the Food Lion in the 3800 block of Kecoughtan Road saw a masked man jump over a counter and demand money from a cashier.

    Police say the guard identified himself as security personnel and demanded that the suspect surrender. When the suspect pointed the gun toward the guard, officials say the guard fired one shot striking the suspect in the head.

    None of the customers or employees in the business at the time were injured.

    This is the second time in less than two months that police were called to a late night robbery at a Hampton Food Lion.

    In January, police were called to a store in the 2700 block of Nickerson Boulevard when two masked men pointed weapons at cashiers and demanded money. When a cashier couldn't get her register to open fast enough, the suspects opened fire. The cashier was hit by a ricochet bullet. Another worker was shot in the shoulder.

    Both employees recovered from their injuries.

    So, as we all are aware, even a headshot is no guarantee that the BG will die. Tho in a perfect world he would.
    This just shows how rampant Hollywood is with their myths about guns.

    I used to be both a security guard and a security guard supervisor, as well as working as a consultant and bodyguard. IIRC: Most guards (at least in the states where I worked: Alabama & Florida) are mandated by state law to use only certain calibers and loads in duty weapons. Typically it was a .38sp revolver and 158gr RN lead aka "The Widow Maker."
    You're correct, Hollywood is totally FUBAR but let's give a little leeway to the caliber and load used. I'll bet that had the guard been using a Federal Hydra-Shok 230gr load, it would've been a bit more serious.
