Some people a really stupid.
Robbing a gun store is a sure way to get shot and that is what happened in Cobb County, Georgia. Dixie Gun and Pawn had just opened when two men with ski masks and guns came in. Police say the owner pulled out his gun and fired, hitting one of the gunmen.
The would be robber that the owner shot died at the scene. The other made his escape in a Dodge Magnum. The Police are hoping the surveillance tape will help identify the man who escaped.
I figure it was going to happen sooner or later. So much crime around here,” the owner’s friend, Bill Bloedow, said. “It could have been him shot, you know. He was just protecting his merchandise and those around him. I hope it puts the fear in people going around trying to do this stuff, there is too much crime in this area.”
The store owner had to rebuild the place after a 2015 fire left it in ruins. Since then, store regulars say the gun and pawn shop has been burglarized several times. “He’s just trying to make a living. That’s all he’s doing, and these guys come in and try to rob you and take your money and your guns. You can’t have a business these days without people trying to take what you’ve got,” the owner’s friend, Victor Harris, said.
