    GOOD: Store Clerks Takes Gun From Robber - Savannah, GA

    Would-be robber shot with his own gun after struggle | Jacksonville.com

    SAVANNAH, Ga. - A gunman was shot with his own weapon Thursday afternoon during an attempted holdup that turned into a wrestling match at a midtown Savannah store.

    At about 2:30 p.m., the 19-year-old suspect walked into the Crossroads Convenience store on Staley Avenue, brandishing two handguns, according to Savannah-Chatham police.

    The store clerk, however, refused to hand over cash without a fight.

    A struggle between the two ensued. The clerk managed to grab one of the firearms, metro police said.

    The clerk then shot at the suspect, hitting him in the leg, investigating officers said, motivating the would-be robber to run away.

    The suspect dropped the second gun, which was not loaded, as he took off, according to metro police.

    Officers and K-9 units attempted to track down the suspect, but he succeeded in fleeing the area, metro police said.

    About an hour after the attempted robbery, metro police were alerted by Memorial University Medical Center officials that a man had come to the hospital with a gunshot wound to the leg.

    Metro police detectives went to the hospital and took the suspect into custody. Charges were pending late Thursday.

    At 6 p.m., the suspect's identity was still not disclosed because metro police were questioning witnesses in the case, department spokeswoman Judy Pal said.

    Workers at Crossroads Convenience declined to be interviewed for comment.
    At least this hospital knows and complies with the law to notify PD of gunshot wounds, unlike the one in NYC where Plaxico went.

    Anyhow, props to the store clerk, takes some big brass ones to take on someone wielding to handguns.

    Cool

    Crossroads Convenience Store?
    Let's see. If it's part of a large chain he's probably out of a job by now.
    If it's a small locally owned store, they're probably thanking him.
    Glad he's ok. He's got guts.

    If I was unarmed and facing someone with 2 guns, not sure I would resist if other options were available. Good job on the CS clerks part though.

    Good thing the clerk chose the loaded gun to grab.

    Would have been better to have one of his own, but at least he's okay.

    Another one of those, 'had to be there' scenarios...

    He could have given the dirtbag everything he demanded and then got shot.
    Nothing is fair about today's world.
    I'm glad he had the 'big ones' to take this BG on...but he needs to practice his 'close-up' head shots. Now this dirtbag will live to rob again.
