A gunman is in the hospital today, labeled “not expected to survive,” and other is on the run, after they attempted to rob an auto parts store — but didn’t count on a pissed-off owner who was determined to foil their plans.
From Western Journalism:
The owner of an auto parts shop in Oakland Park, Fla., shifted into “no-way” gear earlier this week when he bravely turned the tables on would-be armed robbers, wrestling a gun away from one of the hold-up men and shooting him with his own weapon.
Police say that both the shop owner and the man who tried to rob the business suffered gunshot wounds in the scuffle. But while the man who owns the shop is expected to survive his wound, the accused gunman — who has been charged with attempted murder — remains hospitalized with life-threatening injuries.
An accomplice escaped the scene and is now the focus of a manhunt.
As described by the Sun-Sentinel, the gunman is 36-year-old Conrad Bloomfield, while the owner of the business is named Andrew Hepburn.
The video shows the would-be robber stomping on Hepburn in an effort to hold him down and grabbing Hepburn’s arms behind
his back. Meanwhile, his fellow assailant appeared to become distracted by a witness.
As Bloomfield rummaged through Hepburn’s pockets, the business owner struggled with Bloomfield in an attempt to get the gun, the report said.
Bloomfield screamed for his accomplice’s help as Hepburn managed to take the gun from him. Authorities say Hepburn shot at Bloomfield five times in the chest. Bloomfield’s accomplice shot Hepburn once on the right side of his chest, the report said.
Good for Hepburn for taking a stand, and dealing with a pair of thugs the best way he knew how.
Still calling for gun control, liberals?
Still don’t want to be able to protect yourself when a Bloomfield enters your home?
Still don’t understand the way the world works?
Yeah. Thought so.
