    Would-Be Restaurant Robber Shot By Intended Victim

    http://www.charlotte.com/lohttp://ww...ry/502952.html

    A would-be robber had life-threatening injuries after being shot by his intended victim at a northern Charlotte restaurant late Wednesday, police said.

    The suspect was taken to Carolinas Medical Center after the 9:20 p.m. shooting at Floyd's Homestyle Cooking restaurant on Graham Street. Some of his bloodied clothes were strewn in the parking lot of the restaurant. Nearby, two guns lay on a sidewalk.

    Police haven't released an account of what happened during the shooting, but Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Spokesman Officer Hassan Peterson said the restaurant was closed when the first officers arrived.

    Police interviewed the man working at the restaurant and homicide investigators planned to interview him again late Wednesday.

    It was the second time in less than three months that someone working at a business shot a potential robber.

    In December, a man shot a teenager who was trying to rob his west Charlotte convenience store.

    On that day, two teens walked into the Bradford Food Mart demanding money and at least one of them was armed.

    So was the store's owner.

    The owner and one of the suspects fired their weapons, and one of the suspects was hit in the stomach. The owner wasn't hurt and the injured teen survived.
    Good for the intended victim.

    I think I took my CCW class with the owner of that place.

    The robber took two bullets.
    One to the leg and one to the head.

    Don't you just love it? Good honest citizens taking care of business as they should! Maybe the message will get out to the BG and they will get a job.
    We need to vilify these bad guys as often as we can to the public, in public, and start the pendulum swinging back the other way.
    If you live in an area where something like this has happened, go by and frequent that business and let the owner know you support him/her and the action they were forced to take.
    They are heroes and should be praised for being heroes. Also, find out if the D.A. is supporting them and get a number and give that D.A. a call expressing your support for the D.A. and thanking the D.A. for supporting the good people of our country.
    Let people know in public. There are lots of people out there who feel the same way as you and are just needing someone to say something and they will jump right in there.

    Another good ending to a bad situation. Glad the worker is safe.
