Robbery Suspect with Knife Taken Down by Armed Missouri Citizen
A robbery suspect had a Missouri convenience store clerk at knifepoint. He was taken down by a quick-thinking armed Missouri citizen who entered the store.
Fox News reported that 26-year-old Lance Bush allegedly had a clerk at knifepoint at a Quik Trip in St. Charles, Missouri last Saturday morning. The suspect was not aware of the fact that there was a citizen in the parking lot who was concealed carry who was noticing that something was wrong inside the store. After asking if everything was OK, he understood it wasn't and took action. WLTX with video from KSDK in St. Louis shared the story of what happened next.
The customer who requested to remain anonymous shot and killed the suspect who police are now crediting with potentially saving even more lives along with that of the clerk. They report that the anonymous citizen told News 19 "Taking somebody's life is not an everyday thing, neither is saving someone's life,".
Fox News reported that Lance Bush was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead later that day. The anonymous citizen is reported to have remained at the scene until police arrived.
