This thing of walking into a store and stealing because you can and won’t be prosecuted, does not work everywhere. And that goes double if you become aggressive.
GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas — An armed robbery suspect was shot and killed by a customer inside a Grand Prairie business Thursday night, police say.
Around 9:10 p.m., Grand Prairie police officers responded to a reported robbery in progress at a business in the 1600 block of West Polo Road. When officers arrived, they located the alleged robbery suspect suffering from an apparent gunshot wound.
Police said the suspect was transported to a local hospital and was later pronounced dead.
During the investigation, detectives determined the armed suspect was in the act of robbing the business and an employee, when they were confronted by a customer.
The customer, who police say is a concealed handgun license holder, told detectives that he feared for his life and the life of the employee, so he intervened and shot the suspect.
For fun’s sake, I checked the address and the only thing in the area with possible available cash for a quick fix is a Dollar General. How embarrassing has to be for the family to admit the dumb asshole got popped robbing a cheap store? Well, not so cheap if you consider the price he paid for his stupidity.
