A concealed carrying pharmacist in West Virginia took control of a dangerous situation that resulted when an armed robber pulled out a gun with several staff members and customers in the immediate vicinity.
According to WCHSTV:
The robbery occurred about 9:45 a.m. Wednesday at the Good Pharmacy on North Pinch Road, according to a news release from the sheriff’s department. Deputies said a masked male suspect entered the pharmacy and pointed a firearm at the staff. The pharmacist on duty pulled his own firearm that he was carrying concealed and fired the weapon at the suspect. The suspect was struck and fell onto the pharmacy floor. Staff at the pharmacy then began to perform lifesaving measures on the suspect.
The suspect was transported to Charleston Area Medical Center General Hospital where he was taken into surgery. The suspect did succumb to his injuries and was pronounced dead at the hospital.
The shooting was clearly self defense so the pharmacist will not face any charges.
Police have not yet released the identity of the suspect.
