    I haven't seen this before so I'm posting here.

    LiveLeak.com - Would-be robber shot and killed by security guard

    You can see the guard pull his gun out at 0:25.

    A would-be robber was shot and killed Saturday morning in New Smyrna Beach as a store owner was opening up his shop.

    The robber was shot twice in the chest by a security guard at the Medicine Shoppe pharmacy Saturday at 10:15 a.m.

    Police said the masked robber entered the store at 653 N. Dixie Freeway, put a gun to the head of the pharmacist and demanded drugs.

    That's when the man with the gun was shot and killed by the security guard.

    Neighboring store owners said the Medicine Shoppe had heard rumors lately that they were going to be held up, and as a result had hired the security guard.

    "It was kind of chaotic," said neighboring store owner Julie Mokas. "Everyone was peeking out their doors. No one knew what was going on."

    According to neighboring shop owners, the security guard is a retired sheriff's deputy who is related to an employee of the Medicine Shoppe. However, police would not confirm that.

    "They were tipped off that somebody was gonna rob them, and they had an undercover cop sitting in there," Mokas said.

    The shooting is being investigated by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the state attorney's office but police appear to support the guard's actions.

    "The security guard did what he had to do, and he protected the pharmacist," said New Smyrna Beach police Sgt. Michael Brouillette.

    The pharmacist and one clerk, who were in the store at the time of the hold-up, were not harmed.

    The store had been held up twice before. It was robbed in May 2006 and April 2007. Both were armed hold-ups with suspects looking for drugs.

    The suspect have been identified as being Keith Allen Higginbotham.

    I guess Mr. 'RottenBottom' (Higginbotham) earned his retirement package...

    Hope the guard gets a bonus for good work.

    Fascinating...

    to watch as the 'guard' appears to my eye to be 'laying', apparently concealed from the perp, awaiting the right moment to step out and execute justice. The guy earned his salary and benefits all right there in the blink of an eye!:

    This is like 6 mos. old and that security guard was actually an off-duty LEO working security as a secondary.
    He was in plain clothes walking the store floor as though he were a citizen.

    This item was discussed greatly when it was new news.

    but I read many of your posts and shake my head, make no reply even though I am puzzled by them sometimes. Is your point that for those who missed the previous post on this old news event should not be allowed to discuss it? It would seem to me that this is your position. If I miss your intent, please excuse me. But I for one, while not meaning to engage you in a quarrel here, percieve this and some other of your posts as quite arrogant, and dismissive of others. Best to you, Jang.

    The guard/LEO did NOT "execute" justice but confronted a criminal who represented a grave and immediate threat of death or grave bodily harm to the pharmacy employees.

    figure of speech! Strange how some here seem to set themselves up as arbiters of other poster's speech patterns and habits. Good day to you, Miggy.
