In a small shop in Norco, California, about 50 miles southeast of Los Angeles, one man decided he had had enough, and took the law into his own hands. When four robbers pulled up to his store, and began to enter with rifles pointed at him, the 80-year-old man fired a single blast from his shotgun, hitting the first burglar in the door. As the criminals fled back to their vehicle, between screams of agony, the wounded intruder repeatedly shouted “He shot my arm off!” Peter Sblendorio reports in the New York Daily News:
An 80-year-old liquor store owner thwarted a robbery attempt Sunday by shooting an armed mugger who entered his Southern California shop, jaw-dropping footage shows.
The owner of the Norco Market & Liquor store in Riverside County fired his weapon once, almost immediately after the rifle-wielding robber entered the store, according to Los Angeles news station KABC, which published the surveillance video.
The suspect can be heard in the video screaming, “He shot my arm off!” The footage shows him get into a car that fled the scene.
The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department confirmed that four suspects with long guns were linked to a robbery at the store shortly before 3 a.m. local time Sunday, and said all four of them were found at a hospital, KABC reported.
One of the suspects had a suffered wound that could have been from a gunshot from a shotgun, officials said.
The wounded suspect, who is 23, has not been identified, and is reportedly in critical condition but is said to be stable.
