(YouTube) – 2 men tried to outgun the owner of a gun store in Mableton, but it did not work out as planned.
It happened on Monday morning December 26th 2016 at the Dixie Gun and Pawn on Veterans Memorial Highway in Cobb County.
The store owner Jimmy Groover said that “two men wearing masks came in with guns drawn, demanding that he get on the floor, while shouting they were going to kill him.” But Groover was wearing a handgun on his hip “Police said (Groover) pulled out his gun and fired, hitting one of the gunmen.”
The suspects opened fire as well, later police arrived to find shattered glass and one of the two suspects lying on the floor. The second suspect fled the scene and escaped in a silver Dodge Charger.
We wrote about this back when it happened, (see here) but this is the first footage of what actually went down that day inside Dixie Gun and Pawn in Cobb County.
The store owner is clearly shook up about the ordeal, but thanks to his quick thinking, he and the other people in the store that day got to go home to their families.
Despite the loss of a lie, this situation could have been a lot worse.
One thing is for sure, criminals will think twice before trying to rob this gun store again.
