Armed Robber’s Family Angry That Good Samaritan Shot Him, Hero “Should Have Just Left” [Video]
The family of an armed robber is angry and lashing out after a Good Samaritan shot him. They believe the hero “should have just left the store”.
Adric White, 18, held an employee of a Family Dollar in Mobile, Alabama at gunpoint when a concealed carry permit holder, who remains anonymous, took action.
The unnamed defender told FOX10 News that he was shopping at the Family Dollar on Stanton road when he saw the masked gunman leading an employee to the front of the store.
“He had the gun to his head. He had him on his knees,” said the man. “I drew my gun on him and I said ‘Hey don’t move.’ At that point he swung around and before he had a chance to aim the gun at me I fired. I didn’t want to shoot him.”
In a FOX10 interview, a family member, who wished to remain unidentified, was angry that White was shot under the circumstances.
“If his (the customer) life was not in danger, if no one had a gun up to him, if no one pointed a gun at him – what gives him the right to think that it’s okay to just shoot someone?” said the relative. “You should have just left the store and went wherever you had to go in your car or whatever.”
Court records show that White was out on bond for robbing The Original Oyster House at gunpoint a little more than a month before the Family Dollar robbery.
Mobile police have also arrested Tavoris Moss, 19, as an accomplice to the Family Dollar robbery. The police said that the Good Samaritan who shot White had broken no laws.
White remains in police custody after being treated at USA Medical Center.
