On July 30, 2017, a 61-Year-Old, mild mannered musician, Darius Summers, walked down to the local gas station for a cup of coffee. He had recently obtained a concealed carry permit. Darius is not a large man.
A local miscreant made Darius, and saw that Darius was armed. He decided that he would rob Darius of his gun. It was a terrible mistake in the victim selection process. The store video shows what happened.
It did not turn out well for the large, armed, thuggish teenager. Darius lulled the suspect into a false sense of security. Then he accessed his pistol and shot the would be armed robber.
It was a nicely executed bit of misdirection. It illustrates the old saw: Old age and treachery beat youth and skill.
He said a 16-year-old boy armed with a gun saw that Summers was also armed, and the teen tried to take his weapon. He stuck his gun in Summers' back, thinking he was an older, easier target.
I said, All I want to do is leave,' Summers said. He said, You can't leave.' I said, OK. What do you want to do?'
Summers said the teen was controlling him, but then the 61-year-old man pulled out his own gun and shot the boy in the stomach. The teen picked up the gun that he dropped and limped out of the store.
The size, strength, and agility advantages were all on the side of the armed robbery suspect. He knew that Darius was armed. Darius' handgun and tactics more than evened the odds, allowing him to prevail and likely prevent untold future crimes.

Ah, “teen robber”. You know, it’s almost as if one could guess by the headline.
Almost. Or something.
Good shooting, Citizen. Civilization thanks you.
He was such a good young man. /s
I haven’t clicked the article. Boy, would I be surprised to find that the teem had some narcotic in his system of some sort.
The only thing I did when I was bangin’ with my bro’s in The Van Buren boys was to give the secret sign. Maybe the secret sign has changed since then.
Kinda reminds me of St. Mike. When is his rap album coming out?
Well then, Darius wasn't exactly carrying concealed, now was he.
Certainly a good case for having one chambered.
Looks like it got the criminal thug’s attention. His pants stayed up, though, which helped while he was staggering out the door.
He be a "musician" and stuff. LOL!
Reminds of the video in Ferguson when the thug was picking up the storekeeper by the throat.
Maybe he was workin’, ya know, some street cred for the rap album.
He be real gangsta’.
Nothing like Death Row Records.
It illustrates the old saw: Old age and treachery beat youth and skill.
The other saw being” “Don’t pick a fight with an old man.”
So...did teen goombah with things in his stomach that he did not swallow, drag his sorry @zz to the ER and insist, “I was cleaning my gun and it went off, I swear! Twice!!”
The rest of the story might help. Meanwhile, bravo to Mr. Armed Musician.
Big Mike grabbing the store owner by the front of the neck on his way out the door with the merchandise:
This incident points out the biggest drawback in open carry. Miscreants like Darius will simply shoot you in the back and take your weapon from your dead body.

It’s worth watching in slow motion.
“Maybe this should happen a little more often to the “Dindunuffin” boys.”
