71 year-old Florida Man Foils Robbery With His Firearm
Florida – Two men tried to rob an Internet cafe when a 71-year-old customer fired a few rounds with his piece-maker, foiling the robbery and wounding the suspects.
Surveillance footage shows two masked men entering the Palms Internet Cafe around 10 p.m. Friday. One of them pointed a gun at customers while the other swung a baseball bat. Samuel Williams then pulled his handgun and took aim. He began firing while the suspects fall over each other as they run out the door.
Nineteen-year-olds Duwayne Henderson and Davis Dawkins were later arrested and face attempted armed robbery with a firearm and criminal mischief charges. Dawkins had a miner wound on his left arm, but Henderson had gunshot wounds in two places: his left buttock and his right hip.
The good Samaritan hero Williams, has a concealed weapons permit. Bill Gladson of the Marion County State Attorney’s Office says the shooting appears justified.
Both men were arrested for attempted robbery with a firearm.
Chalk one up for the good guys, and another blow for gun control advocates. It’s nice to see that some people in this country still believe in private citizen’s right to self defense.
