Gun Store Owner Shoots Through Counter, Kills Robbery Suspect

by AWR Hawkins

Breitbart News previously reported that a Mapleton, Georgia, gun store owner fatally shot one of two armed suspects who entered his store on December 26 and ordered him to the floor.

The store is Dixie Gun and Pawn and the store owner’s name is Jimmy Groover.

Action News 5 reports that Groover was wearing a handgun on his hip when the suspects entered the store. Once under threat, he drew his gun and shot, hitting one of the suspects and killing him on the spot.

Surveillance video of the incident has now been released and published by LiveLeak. In it you can clearly see one of two suspects pointing a gun at a store employee and then in Groover’s direction. The next thing you see is Groover shooting and killing one suspect, then shooting at the second as well.

The second suspect was able to escape and neither Groover nor his employee were harmed.

Groover said his store has been robbed numerous times during the three decades that his family has owned it, but this was the first time that people allegedly tried to rob it during business hours.

Groover faces no charges for killing the suspect in self-defense.
