Family Of Armed Robber, Who Was Shot And Killed, Says Clerk Shouldn’t Have Had Gun At Work

Play stupid games…. get stupid prizes!!! Family is upset that their relative was shot by clerk during an ARMED Robbery!!!

A Dollar General store was robbed by a man in his 20’s, but he didn’t make off with the cash. Instead, the clerk drew a firearm and shot the suspect, who stumbled outside the store where he collapsed.

“Witnesses at the Dollar General told investigators that a person entered the store, revealed a handgun and then demanded money from the cash register, [Lt. Jason] Hall said.

A worker, who was not working at the cash register, was armed and confronted Rappley.

Witnesses said that he pointed the gun at employees, Hall said.

In a 911 call, a man told dispatchers that a man with a gun attempted to rob him at the store.

“He pointed a gun at me,” the caller said. “I had a firearm on me. I pulled my firearm and I shot him in self defense.”

The armed employee also said that the suspect, 23-year-old Roosevelt Rappley, fired back in retaliation.

Shortly after, two members of Rappley’s family spoke with reporters outside the store where he was shot and killed. Their take on things; the store clerk shouldn’t have been armed.
