Concealed Carry Stops Robbery

Police: Armed customer stops KFC robbery | IndyStar.com These stories I just love. Good Guys win, bad guys lose, no shots fired, no one hurt.
McMiller, police said, ordered a bucket of chicken then told cashier Deanne Slaughter: “Give me the money before I shoot you.”

The suspect held his hand in his back pocket as if reaching for a gun, police said, then lifted his foot to jump over the counter.

Paul Sherlock, a customer sitting in the dining room, approached and pointed a Taurus 9-mm handgun towards the suspect’s back.

The suspect raised his hands over his head, police said. Sherlock ordered him to lean against a window with his hands up until police arrived.
The hero of this story said he was nervous but not scared once he got the drop on the bad guy. And of course a valid concealed carry permit was involved on the part of Sherlock. [via KABA]
