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.
