    Shootout at the jewelry store

    This almost looks like a TV script.

    Wild video shows Las Vegas jewelry store shootout with armed robbers

    Wild video footage shows the moment a man being hailed as a hero shot and killed an armed suspect after two gunmen stormed into a Las Vegas jewelry store.

    The shootout happened in December at John Fish Jewelers, but the owners withheld releasing surveillance video of the incident until this week when they learned police had arrested the second suspect.

    In the video, two armed robbers dressed in black and wearing masks storm inside the store just before closing time.

    "I'm not a hero. I do what I have to do."
    How many times have I heard that exact statement? I honestly believe that is the definition of a Hero.

    Glad to hear the Good Guys survived and the BG's now both face justice.

    Pedro obviously exercised great courage in the situation. However, I think he endangered the hostages by an assault while hostages were totally controlled on the ground by the perps. Had I been Pedro I would have taken a position where I could engage the perps once they moved away from the hostages and toward the display counters. Meanwhile, guts is guts, and Pedro has guts.

    It seemed to me that Pedro had them by surprise but didn’t fire the first shots. Hesitation or time to process what he was seeing?

    A few weeks ago I was out and about with my wife and we parked in front of a jewelry store, one of the few places that posts a 30.06 sign on their door. I was telling her how that should be the last place they wouldnt want their customers carrying since they are a prime target for robbers. Glad Pedro was carrying and saved the day!

    He's probably one of those who've decided they'll only need what's in the gun because he doesn't plan to need more.
