Here’s another one of those incidents that Shannon Watts of Moms Demand Action claims never happens.

A concealed carrier in Phoenix, Arizona allegedly opened fire on two bank robbers. This led to one of the suspects being shot and killed while the second was captured by police nearby.

According to ABC15,

The owner of the salon next door to the bank said it was another business owner who opened fire.

“He took the keys out of the car because they left the car running. And so he took the keys out of the car and kind of, I guess, he stood behind it waiting for them (the suspects) to come out,” said Therea Sessler, owner of Fix Salon.

“What scares me the most is I’m just a couple doors down,” said Eduardo Lopez, who works at the nearby Jersey Mikes. “It could’ve been me.”

The concealed carrier reportedly opened fire on the pair of suspects once he realized they had guns. The suspect who survived the encounter carjacked a person at gunpoint and crashed into several other vehicles on his way out of the shopping plaza. He was captured by police nearby.

Arizona is a constitutional carry state. No permit is needed to carry a firearm.

This is the 25th defensive gun use we’ve documented in the state of Arizona and the 1,321st defensive gun use we’ve documented overall.
