Another Case For Concealed Carry

From the Orange County Register: A 33-year-old man is in critical condition Monday after being shot in the head by a jewelry store owner during a robbery attempt at the Asian Garden Mall, officials said. A second man was arrested and police seek a third man who escaped in a late-model Honda Accord, said Sgt. Cameron Knauerhaze of the Westminster Police Department. The wounded suspect, who police have identified as Harold Eugene Walker of Gardena, is in critical but stable condition at UC Irvine Medical Center in Orange.
 The second suspect, identified as Earnie Jerome Robinson, 57, of Gardena, was taken to Fountain Valley Regional Hospital because of a pre-existing medical condition, officials said.
The shooting was reported about 1:15 p.m. in the 9200 block of Bolsa Avenue near Moran Street, police said.
Walker and Robinson entered Tick Tock Watches jewelry store, one using a wheelchair that later turned out to be a ruse, Knauerhaze said. The pair ordered the customers onto the ground, as Walker wielded a gun and Robinson a sledgehammer, he said.
Hearing the noise from the back of the store, a shop owner armed himself with his own gun and confronted Walker, warning him to drop the weapon, Knauerhaze said.
When Walker did not comply, the shop owner fired once, striking him in the head, Knauerhaze said. The two men fled on foot, and officers apprehended Walker as he tried to climb a wall in the parking lot, while a witness and a security guard apprehended Robinson, police said.  http://www.ocregister.com/news/person-366211-police-suffering.html
Another concealed carry success story.  But there are some stupid people out there who say concealed carry is dangerous.  Yes it is, to criminals.
