postheadericon Two Teens Attempt Armed Robbery, But Their Target Was An Off-Duty Police Officer

WEST VALLEY CITY, UTAH – Two teenagers tried to rob a man last tuesday, but they didn’t know who they were messing with at the time. However, they quickly found out.

The two teenagers accused of shooting a man during an attempted theft last week, didn’t know that their intended victim was an off-duty West Valley City officer, said police.

Local media reports;

The officer had been checking his mail at a communal mailbox at home near 3300 South and 1250 West just after 7 p.m. last Tuesday, according to a news release from West Valley police.

As he walked back home, two suspects with a handgun stopped him and allegedly attempted to rob him.

“During the course of this robbery, multiple rounds were fired both at the officer and by the officer,” the release stated. The suspects fled.

Moments after the officer had reported the shooting, two teens arrived in the local hospital with gunshot injuries. They had shown up at the hospital with the same vehicle described by the officer. The 17-year-old had been shot once and the 15-year-old had been shot twice.

The police officer was shot once in the foot and is recovering after leaving the hospital. The officer was not in uniform during the attempted robbery which indicates that the suspects didn’t know who they were getting involved with.

Concealed handguns protect people who cannot always rely on the police for protection, but when a victim is a concealed carrying police officer, there are usually one of the two outcomes: jail, or death.

postheadericon [VIDEO] Employee And Thug Exchange Gunfire In Smoke Shop Robbery Attempt

DURHAM, NORTH CAROLINA — A store clerk was shot in the arm during a gunfire exchange with a masked robber, and the clerk’s being armed likely saved his life.

In a world where some people will do anything to get some money, it’s only fair –and right– to arm ourselves against them.

The story goes as follows;

Authorities said a man wearing a mask entered the Smoke 4 Less shop on Avondale Drive at about 8 p.m. on Sept. 28 and fired a shot at an employee, who returned fire.

The employee sustained a gunshot wound to his arm, and the man fled without taking anything.

About 30 minutes later, police officers responded to an armed robbery at a Hardees at 4607 South Alston Avenue in which a man with a gun entered the restaurant and demanded money, authorities said.

It isn’t known whether the same person was responsible for both incidents, but I don’t believe in coincidence. It’s very likely that the same person is to blame, and lends more credit to the fact that he was desperate to get money from someone… somewhere.

After being in one gun battle, he had some pretty fearless actions as far as going to another location. It’s this determination that warrants the need for more armed citizens.

There was no mention on the clerk’s condition, but we hope that he makes a full recovery from his injuries.

As a side note, it appears in the video that the clerk needed to rack the slide to chamber a round. Whether it was a malfunction or not may never be known, but it’s a good exercise to see if you’d be ready to rack the slide in a stressful situation. Some will fumble, some will fail, and others will make the action happen as smooth as butter.

It’s part luck, but mostly training.

It also appears that the clerk saw the danger coming and had the firearm in-hand before the thug entered the shop door. That’s important right there, as he seems to have been aware of what was about to happen.
