First to Georgia via Bearing Arms
A convenience store clerk in Cartersville (GA) retreated to the back of the store when he saw a pair of armed robbers enter the store. He retreated into a back area of the store with five customers and tried to shut the door, only to come eye-to-eye with one the the armed thugs.
It then became a contest of who was going to be faster and more accurate.
The clerk, James, said there were 5 people in the back of the store playing video games before the shooting happened. He said he saw two men walk in wearing masks and they were armed. According to James, he jumped in the back room and tried to shut the door, but one of the men was trying to push it open from the other side.
“We were about a foot apart looking one another in the eyes. I knew he was fixing to start shooting, or I thought he was, so I reached around the door and shot him,” James told FOX 5.
