Would-be robber shot by victim

The victim of a robbery outside a Myrtle Beach church last week had a stroke of luck when the suspect’s gun jammed during an exchange of gunfire, according to reports.

The suspect approached the victim — a security guard — at the Grand Strand Baptist Church around 11 pm on Thursday as people inside prepared for a weekend event. The suspect asked the guard if he had change for a $20 bill, but as the guard reached for his wallet, the suspect trained a gun on his stomach and then took the wallet.

The guard pulled his own gun as the suspect began walking away. In response, the suspect fired a shot, which struck the guard’s car door. Then as the guard returned fire, the suspect attempted to fire a second shot, but his gun apparently jammed. The guard then seized the opportunity and emptied his weapon, striking the suspect multiple times.

The suspect ran to a nearby restaurant and told employees that he was attacked and needed medical attention. When police arrived, witnesses pointed them to the injured man and the area they saw him ditch his gun. They also spoke to the security guard, who identified himself as the shooter.

    The Revolutionary War soldiers had the most modern rifles known & if they were writing the 2nd amendment today they would NOT have any limitations on weapons you could buy as they knew that is the only defense against a tyrannical government equipped w/latest weaponry !
