A store owner in the Bronx shot a would be robber in the head this past Sunday night on Oct. 21. WABC Channel 7 in New York published a story about the incident.
It happened at around 10:30 pm at J Market on Morrison Ave. in the Soundview section of the Bronx. The 43-year-old store owner claims that the suspect entered his business and demanded cash.
When the owner refused, the suspect attempted to jump over the counter. That’s when the owner raised his firearm and shot the suspect in the head. Upon arriving, authorities discovered the suspect and transported him to Jacobi Medical Center where he expired from the gunshot wound.
Police said that the unnamed store owner legally possessed the gun. Although no weapon was discovered on the suspect’s person, the store owner claims that suspect did say he’d harm the victim.
Authorities have identified the suspect as 32-year-old Daniel Meeks. The investigation remains open.
As a Brit living and working in the USA, her views on gun ownership and the second amendment have evolved over the years, allowing her to fully understand both sides of the gun control debate and she regularly speaks on the matter to help others understand why she feels the second amendment must be protected and why she chooses to be an advocate for the shooting sports.
