West Palm Beach police say 23-year-old Tyrone Roy Pinkney fatally shot 55-year-old Mohammad Rahman, a Dixie Food and Beverage store clerk, and 50-year-old Felipe Rixtun-Escobar, a customer at the store, just after 9 p.m. Saturday.How many more people would he have killed?
Around 10 p.m., Pinkney attempted a second robbery at the Community Food Market in Delray Beach. He reportedly shot at the clerk, who ducked behind a counter, grabbed a gun and returned fire. Pinkney left the store, but his body was found nearby outside, still holding his gun.
Self-defense is a human right. And when law-abiding folks are armed, society is better off.
