An alleged robber apparently felt very lucky on Sunday. You see, after robbing a store, he reportedly came back for more.
According to KRQE, an armed man allegedly robbed the Oasis Smoke Shop in Albuquerque. The owner, Kane Queis, said employees followed all directions and the robber fled with cash.
But he apparently decided to return to the scene.
“His intentions were not just to take the money. I am not sure why he came back, we are not sure why he came back, he came back, from the looks of it, extremely, extremely angry just looking to hurt people. He came in to hurt whoever was in that store at that moment,” Queis told KRQE.
But he probably didn’t count on one of the employees being armed.
“We did not have a gun in there, one of our employees did and it wasn’t on him at the moment. It was actually hidden in his backpack. He actually had to reach out for that to protect himself,” Queis said.
During the second incident, the employee reportedly shot and killed the alleged robber.
“I’m really proud of my team, I’m proud of my guys, I’m proud of how they handled the situation. They listened to this individual, they did everything he wanted them to do and even then, it wasn’t enough,” Queis told KRQE.
Meanwhile, this is just the latest incident in which an armed employee has fired upon an alleged robber. A gas station clerk recently shot a suspect who was ultimately arrested at a hospital.
