The family of a suspected armed robber who was shot while holding up a Family Dollar store in Mobile, Ala., is upset with the customer who pulled the trigger.

The unidentified customer told the local FOX affiliate he was shopping at the store when he noticed a masked gunman leading an employee to the front of the store.

“He had the gun to his head,” the customer told FOX10 News. “He had him on his knees. 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.”

The masked gunman was said to be Adric White, 18, who was out on bond for a robbery that occurred about a month earlier, according to Fox10 News.

Incredibly, a family member who did not want to be identified said White should have never been shot to begin with because the good Samaritan “should have just left the store.”

“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?” the relative told Fox10 News. “You should have just left the store and went wherever you had to go in your car or whatever.”

Guns.com reported that White was shot five times, but survived. He is in police custody as he recovers in a local hospital.

As the report indicated, police say the customer who opened fire was justified and broke no laws.

    May need more accuracy training & or better gun !!

    • Wendy Estes

      Actually, it sounds like he was pretty accurate. He had the presence of mind to disable the gunman without putting the responsibility of taking a life onto his own soul.

    I’ll bet a 50 dollar bill, White is black? Customer 1 gangbanger wannbe 0.

    • Ronald Jackson

      Sounds like white is black and customer #1 is a real law abiding citizen the complete opposite of your self.

  • Linda Cox Bireley

    Bravo for the shooter, should have killed the guy to save the taxpayers money in supporting his sorry ass in prison. Dumb ass family is the reason that kid is the way he is.

    In Florida Blacks are trying to do away with Stand Your Ground just for this reason..They don’t want us to be able to fight back..They just think we should just lay down and take it…But guess what..There are more of us armed and ready to fight back..Like Clint Eastwood would say, “Go ahead thug make my day”…

    • DARPatriot

      And this is interesting because blacks have used the Stand Your Ground defense more than whites. It won’t get changed…the Legislatures knows better.

    • Randy Miller

      He never said thug , he said PUNK !!!! Go ahead punk , make my day. !!!!

      • Steve Wolfe

        point goes to Randy for accuracy.

        • Aaron Barnes

          keeping score

      • joe cartwright

        Like I didn’t know that…I made it fit today times…

    Family was probably driving the get-a-way car. They should count themselves luck he did not shoot them to as acomplices!

  • m.valinski

    He got what he deserved & is lucky 2 b alive. And his wackadoo family is no help either.

  • Mindmech

    Now you know where dumbasses come from. Dumbass “parents”. Be thankful the five rounds were not all in the head region. I wished the customer had better aim.

    • francoamerian

      Even if the bad guy had been shot in the head, there would not have been any problem. There obviously were not any vital organs within that head that might have been damaged by the bullets going through that coconut skull. I make this assumption based upon the remarks of the family members which show an obvious lack of intelligence.

      • Steve Wolfe

        point to Franco!!

  • Alively

    that store needs to look into the ‘family member’ that works their. sounds like an inside job to me that went wrong for them.

    • Traci Pribyl

      No where in this story does it say that a family member works there, unless you know something that the rest of don’t.

      • Anita C Lively

        you are correct.. i read it wrong. What I should have said was “Good for the Shooter, We need more like him”!

  • Ronald R. Johnson

    Anyone who robs someone else needs to be shot until they are dead! And the family member of this guy who is flapping his jaws is full of it and will probably be shot later doing the same thing! Good shooting buddy!

  • Holli

    So, just so I’m clear – The good guy should’ve left the store employee alone with a masked gunman – who could’ve shot the employee?? Right. Then, when the idiot robber turned his gun on the patron, the gun was AIMED at him. You want to be mad there family – Be mad your loved one was robbing people. Maybe if his butt was at home or I don’t know, NOT RIBBING SOMEONE, he wouldn’t have been shot – DUH! How about YOUR loved one shouldn’t have had a gun…you can be mad all you want, raise the next generation of your family better and this is less likely to occur. ;)
