65-Year-Old Sacramento Coin Store Owner Shoots and Kills Robber
Of note is the fact that the coin store had previously been broken into less than a month ago. Something tells me, once word gets out on the street, the store owner isn’t going to have any more break-ins for quite some time…
Of course, the local Libtard journalist from the Sacramento Bee sounds surprised to learn that a clear case of self-defense might not result in the arrest of the 69-year-old store owner. Just check out the apparent disappointment in the following headline:
No arrest in shooting of alleged burglar by Marconi Avenue shop owner
From Bill Lindelof – The Sacramento Bee
Sacramento County sheriff’s detectives continue to investigate the fatal shooting [Monday] morning of a man they say was breaking into a coin and jewelry.
The suspect was killed by the owner of the store on the 4900 block of Marconi Avenue. The 65-year-old owner has not been arrested, a sheriff’s spokesman said.
The district attorney will determine if any charges are filed against the owner, based on results of the sheriff’s investigation.
The shop owner was inside the store when the incident began at about 4:15 a.m. Investigators are gathering evidence that will help determine if the shooting was justified.
[Yeah, I left that last sentence in there just to show you that the reporter has now told us three times already—if you count the headline—that the store owner might, just might face charges if this was not clearly a justifiable homicide. Yup, it certainly sounds as if the reporter is hoping upon hope that the cops will find something, anything to lock up this maniacal 69-year-old hoodlum! Nope, we can’t have American citizens protecting their lives and property, now can we? (Sarcasm, of course). ]
Sheriff’s Sgt. Tim Curran said two men approached the store, which had been the target of another break-in on April 29. This time, the owner was inside and called the sheriff’s department to report two men in their mid-20s and wearing black ski masks trying to enter.
Curran said that as the owner spoke on the phone with department personnel, the person taking the call heard several gunshots.
Deputies arrived to find a body in the parking lot. Fire department emergency personnel pronounced the man dead at the scene.
Just a quick note: The other suspect is still at-large, but since his buddy is dead, I’m pretty sure it won’t be long before the law catches up with him.Explore posts in the same categories: Crime, criminal activity, Right to Bear Arms
