Crime never pays! That’s the motto after a masked man entered a 7-11 convenience store in Seattle wielding a hatched before he was shot and killed by a customer who had a concealed carry permit!
A man wielding a hatchet inside a 7-Eleven store in the Seattle area was shot and killed early Sunday morning by a customer who had a concealed carry permit, KTLA sister station KCPQ reported.
The incident began around 5:45 a.m. when the masked men entered the convenience store and — without saying a word — started swinging a hatchet toward a customer, according to the Seattle-based television station. He then attacked the store’s 58-year-old clerk before the customer took out a pistol and shot him, the King County Sheriff’s Office told the station.
The unidentified attacker, described only as a man in his 40s, was pronounced dead at the scene. The clerk suffered minor injuries to the stomach. “Fortunately, because of this customer with his weapon, this could have been a lot worse,” sheriff’s Sgt. Cindi West told the station. “The clerk could be the one laying there dead on the floor right now.”
The customer, a 60-year-old Seattle resident, visits the store daily and was drinking his morning coffee when the incident started, according to investigators. The attacker’s name would be released at a later date, pending the completion of an autopsy, the station reported.
