    Guard who shot 15-year-old robbery suspect says he had no choice

    By Rosa Flores / 11 News

    HOUSTON – Security guard Archie Paige says his six years in the Marines and 25 years in law enforcement prepared him for a Dollar Store robbery that ended in gunfire.

    Security Guard shoots robbery suspect

    Rosa Flores talks with guard who shot 15-year-old robbery suspect
    Surveillance video of robbery View larger E-mail Clip More Video The Dollar Store owner hired Paige after the store was robbed at gunpoint four times by the same group of teens.

    Police say one of the teens tried again on Tuesday, but this time he didn’t get away.

    “I told him to drop his pistol and he turned his pistol toward me and I fired a shot,” said Paige.

    Surveillance video shows the suspect walking into the store, pointing his gun at the clerk and demanding money.

    Paige says he sprung into action when he heard the clerk screaming.

    “When I heard her screaming, ‘Don’t shoot me. Don’t shoot me. You can take all the money. Don’t shoot me.’ That’s when I came around the corner with my 12-guage shotgun,” said Paige.

    Paige said that he asked the 15-year-old suspect to drop his gun and lay on the floor.

    “He kept reaching for his gun. I told him, 'Don’t reach for the gun or I’m going to shoot you.' He reached for his gun and I shot him again on his shoulder and still no reaction,” said Paige.

    The teenage suspect has two bullet wounds, but he's expected to be OK.

    No one else was hurt.

    Shot twice with a shotgun and the thug still lived? How sad...

    The security guard needs some shottie training.

    Okay, what did he shoot him with #9shot? At inside ranges even #4shot will take grapefruit sized chunks out.
    I know not what this "overkill" means.

    I feel that the fact that he spent 6 years in the Marines and 25 years in law enforcement would have made him a better shot.

    Boy you guys are being a tad rough on the guard; these criminals are just a he11 of a lot tougher than they used to be.

    Don't sound like USMC shooting skills to me.
    The views expressed above are the opinion of the poster and may or may not be total bunk.

    Well as usual seems all the facts are not in


    “He kept reaching for his gun. I told him, 'Don’t reach for the gun or I’m going to shoot you.' He reached for his gun and I shot him again on his shoulder and still no reaction,” said Paige.
    The reported quote went from I'm going to shoot, to I shot him again. Facts and the media???

    My question is why would you arm a guard with a shotgun for a first choice weapon in a store where the risk of hitting others is very high. I can only imagine they chose something that they hoped would be less than lethal but risk hitting bystanders.

    Anywho, glad the punk got shot maybe he'll rethink his career choice.

    Okay I watched the video....it was a shotgun, and he did hit him COM with one shot, and another shot in the shoulder. Still Im wondering what he was using for the guy to survive that. With in 20 feet a shotgun is just nasty, and this guy took two shots.
