We’ve been seeing this video making the rounds all day but we weren’t sure where it took place and when. Now Fox 5 Atlanta has filled us in on the details, so it’s even more satisfying to see a would-be robber getting shot with a shotgun by an 80-year-old man.
The 80-year-old owner of Norco Market & Liquor didn’t hesitate to open fire on a male suspect who walked into the store armed with a rifle. https://t.co/R4saqDuHEL

Fox 5 Atlanta reports:
Surveillance video obtained by FOX 11 shows a male suspect wearing a red and black sweatshirt and a ski mask entering the store before he points a rifle at the store owner who was behind the counter. Noticing that the man entering the store was armed and wearing a mask, the 80-year-old store owner swiftly grabbed a shotgun from underneath the counter and opened fire on the suspect. The suspect is then seen fleeing the store.
As the suspect ran out of the store, surveillance video from outside the establishment showed a second suspect inside the black SUV exiting the vehicle, also armed. On their way back to the getaway car, the suspect is heard shouting, “He shot my arm off.”
After noticing the first suspect running from the scene, both suspects got back into the vehicle and drove away.
Nice. The bad news: The store owner suffered a heart attack soon after the incident.

In NYC, the DA would charge the store owner with attempted murder.

I like the part where they had it coming.

The reaction of this criminal says it. “He shot my arm off.” The man defended himself and his property. That shocked the thug who thought he could just walk into this man’s store and take his property without consequences. Guess he found out differently.

Brave 80 year-old man. America needs more like him. He saved himself and his business. God bless him.
