Stock - Gun with bulletsIf this restaurant worker lived in New York he would probably have found himself in hot water for having a gun that holds at least 8 rounds of ammo, however it might have saved his life.

According to NBC San Diego, a worker at Uncle Tony’s Italian Cuisine called police to report an armed robbery in progress.

Two armed suspects had entered the business in an attempt to rob it. One of the workers opened fire on the suspects, firing 8 shots and forcing them to flee.

It is unclear if the worker was carrying the firearm or if it was stored somewhere in the restaurant.

The worker believed he hit both suspects, but police could find no sign of them.

A couple of hours later, two men showed up at an area hospital suffering from non life threatening gunshot wounds. The men said they were shot while walking outdoors, however their story simply didn’t check out and police ultimately linked them to the robbery attempt.

We would like to think that of course the restaurant worker won’t face any charges in the shooting, but this is California, so we’ll keep an eye on that.

This is the 51st defensive gun use we’ve documented in the state of California and the 1043rd defensive gun use we’ve documented overall.
