2 men attempted to rob a gun store in Mableton, Georgia, but the store owner had a little surprise for them.
It all happened Monday morning December 26th, 2016 at the Dixie Gun and Pawn shop. The store owner Jimmy Groover said, “two men wearing masks came in with guns drawn, demanding that he get on the floor, while shouting they were going to kill him.”
Fortunately, Groover was wearing a handgun on his hip at the time of the attempted robbery, and quickly turned the tables on the suspects.
Groover had a split second to react in that situation, and he never hesitated. He pulled out his gun and fired, fatally hitting one of the gunmen. Bullets flew through the store, shattering the glass counters and the store front window.
Police said a series of bullets were fired in both directions.
When police arrived on the scene, they found one of the suspects lying on the floor, but the other escaped in a silver Dodge Charger.
Groover was obviously a little rattled after all of this occurred, stating he “never wanted anything like this to happen, but he also wants to go home at night as well.”
