Several would-be robbers got an impromptu lesson in the Second Amendment outside a supermarket in suburban Atlanta, all thanks to the fact that they messed with the wrong couple.
According to WSB-TV, the men were shot after approaching a couple outside of a Kroger in Decatur, Georgia, on Friday.
Details are still sketchy, but police say the men followed the pair out of the store just after 4 p.m. and tried a robbery of some sort. Thats when one of the targets pulled out a gun and shot the men.
It was chaos, one witness said.
I saw the guy was shot. I saw him on the floor, shot.
Of the three individuals who were hit, it was unclear whether all of them were suspects. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and WXIA-TV were reporting, as of early Sunday morning, that all three wounded individuals were suspects. WSB, meanwhile, reports that two of those shot were suspects and one was a bystander.
Either way, police say the three men were involved in some sort of criminal activity.
We believe that there may have been some sort of crime that was intended to happen at that time, whether it was a robbery or a carjacking, we really dont know right now, Shiera Campbell, DeKalb County police spokeswoman, told WSB.
The police have identified two of the suspects: Andrew Banks, 23, and Austin Harris, 18. The third individual has not been identified. One of them sought treatment at a hospital while two were transported from the scene.
(The suspect) was conscious, but there was a lot of blood. There was a trail of blood. He must have dragged himself into Kroger, one of the witnesses said.

They were having a 2 for 1 sale on gauze and bandages.
Gotta get those Kroger points for savings on gasoline too.
Gasoline points help if the car you are jacking is low on fuel.
The only downside is an employee had to mop the floor.
True. But smart carjackers grab cars at the gas pumps after the drivers fill them up. Why waste your Kroger points when you can use someone elses points.
No one ever said carjackers were smart, but you do have a valid point there.
Best news I’ve read all day.
Georgia seems to have a helluva lot of armed robberies recently, and a lot of perps perforated and/or killed.
No complaint about that. Less Democrat voters, less criminals, safer environment. I count that as a WIN, WIN, and WIN.
When in doubt fire warning shots into the torso.
No, the downside is these folks were either uninsured/on Medicaid and their healthcare is on us.
As one of those despised nra instructors, every conceal carry person should take the NRA defensive pistol or personal protection outside the home course. Learn when, and how to draw from conceal and accurately dispatch one or more attackers. Most people never practice...be prepared.
From the numbers Ive found, about 5% of GAs adult population has a concealed carry license. Apparently many take personal safely seriously.
There is a new-ish DA in DeKalb County. This would be a good one to watch closely. Shes generally a huge improvement over the preview guy, who was like a local version of Eric Holder, but this will be a good litmus test.
Now this is winning. Culling the leftist, demo_rat, psychopaths from our society is a good thing. Seems these demo_rats survived, though.
“Andrew Banks, 23, and Austin Harris, 18.”
While we have their names, we don’t have any photos of them. So I suppose we should conclude they are “Holder’s People,” since they are both adults?
Bears repeating. BTW I took my conceal/carry course from an NRA certified instructor. Very thorough, made sure I understood the law and what constituted a good shoot vs. bad shoot. Well worth the time and effort to take the course, IMO and I highly recommend it.
Given the location Im guessing trops at play
I can only find two, count ‘em two, stories on this attempted robbery. You’d think a daylight, afternoon robbery at a supermarket would rate more interest, especially from the “if it bleeds, it leads” bunch. Hmmm, could it be the self-defense angle...?
