Armed robbery is becoming less and less of a lucrative deal these days as store owners begin to exercise their right to defend their stores more consciously.
For the owner of an auto parts store in Broward, Florida, I don’t think he ever expected to have to defend his own place in broad daylight, let alone that it would happen at all. In the video posted to Facebook by the Broward County Sheriff’s Office, you can clearly see the owner complying patiently, until he gets his opening. So he handled it better than just ‘well,’ managing to get ahold of the perpetrator’s gun, and shooting Conrad Bloomfield. He also pistol whipped the other! From the police’s Facebook post:
“The owner of an auto parts store fought back Monday afternoon when two gunmen showed up at his office to rob him, eventually wresting the gun from one assailant and shooting him multiple times as his accomplice ran away.”
Anyone with information about the accomplice, the second victim, the BMW or its driver is asked to report it to Det. Trevor Goodwin at (954) 321-4270 or report anonymous tips to Broward Crime Stoppers at (954) 493-TIPS (8477) or online at www.browardcrimestoppers.org. Crime Stoppers will pay up to $3,000 for information that leads to an arrest.”
