Robbers Escape Plans Thwarted Twice by Concealed Carry People
Suspected Walmart robber tries to carjack two different cars, both drivers pull out guns!
I love finding “Good Guy With A Gun” stories, but even more so is this one. Where the criminal was not stopped by just one person with a CCW, but by two people with CCW’s in two different encounters.
According to Fox 30, Jacksonville police officers arrested 36-year-old Christopher Raymond Hill, charging him with strong-arm robbery, carjacking with firearm or deadly weapon, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and trespassing according to WHDH.com.
Detectives said the incident began when Hill robbed a Walmart liquor store and attempted to flee in a silver Ford SUV. However, witnesses said the vehicle would not start, so he first tried to carjack Scott Reardean at knifepoint, cutting him on his arms and legs.
“I reached in between my glove box and my console, between my seats, reached down and got my weapon and brandished it for him,” Reardean told WJXT. “He was like, ‘Don’t shoot me.’ I was like, ‘Then get out of here.’”
Hill then jumped into the passenger seat of a woman’s car in a Starbucks drive-thru. Police said the woman got out of her car and grabbed a pistol from her trunk, pointing it at Hill until he ran off.
Why the ladies firearm was inside her trunk and not more readily accessible is beyond me, but at least the alleged criminal was stopped. This is a prime example of why we carry firearms as responsible Legal firearm owners.
Ultimately, police found Hill inside the bathroom of a Supercuts, where he surrendered.
