    GOOD - Robbers shot: one dead one wounded

    Would-be robbers shot overnight near Anniston - NewsFlash - al.com

    This happened right down the road from me. Kudos to the store owner, although I wish he had gotten a better shot on the wounded guy.

    ANNISTON, Ala. (AP) — A would-be robber was shot dead overnight and his alleged accomplice was wounded after they attempted to rob the owner of a gas station near Anniston.

    Calhoun County Sheriff Larry Amerson said the gun-toting suspects and the owner got into a shootout around 6:30 p.m. Tuesday.

    It happened at Fuller's Oil Company on U.S. 431.

    Amerson said 21-year-old Takeem Pope of Anniston appeared to have died of a single gunshot wound. The other man, 19-year-old Blake Jackson, also of Anniston, was shot in the arm.

    Amerson declined to name the owner, but said he acted in self-defense. He was not injured.

    Authorities said charges are pending against Jackson. He was taken to UAB Hospital for treatment.

    Takeem and Blake...Mmmmmm...guess they won't be home for Christmas.
    While I do feel sorry for the families of those two dirtbags...those two young thugs should have been home shoveling snow instead of being out robbing gas stations.

    Let's send out a special congrats to the owner of the gas station...

    Stay armed...you never know...stay safe!
