Maybe armed robbery was not the right career choice?
All Detroit resident Dennis and his girlfriend Latanya wanted was to pick up dinner in west side Detroit’s E&S Carry Out Shrimp Shack on McNichols Road. Instead, what they got was an armed robbery attempt that forced Dennis to draw his lawfully-concealed weapon and shoot the robber to the ground.
As customers waited for their orders, they suddenly found themselves in danger.
“I would have given him money if he asked for money,” Dennis said.
But the attempted robber wasn’t begging, instead demanding cash at gunpoint.
“Just shocked we were getting robbed,” Latanya said.
Dennis and his girlfriend, Latanya, didn’t have much time to react. The couple and another customer started throwing their money and wallets on the floor.
“It wasn’t a plan. It was just instinct. He had the gun in my girl’s face,” Dennis said.
But little did the robber know Dennis was ready and waiting for an opportunity.
“When I saw he had the gun in her face, and I threw my wallet down and keys, he turned to look and get the money, that’s when I lit him up,” Dennis said.
Dennis pulled out his gun, striking the robber once in the stomach. He then kicked the robber’s gun away, then tended to the robber turned-victim.
Nice work! Also in Dallas, Texas, robbery is not a safe occupation
