It seems local PD was aware of the guys, they started after him, he got away, got in the coffee shop, attacked the woman, got shot by the civilian, ran away and it was finally tased down by the cops.
However, this is troubling:
As for the “Good Samaritan”, Hansen said he did have a concealed weapons permit, but investigators will need time to determine if deadly force was required in this situation.
“Once we look at it to see if that helped stop the attack on the clerk, those kinds of things will make the determination on how that all plays out,” Hansen said.
When they use quotation marks, you know they are really putting down the gentleman. Maybe the local PD is pissed because a 70 year old managed to do what they could not or simply they have a hard on for CWPs.
