Armed Citizen Toting Six-Pack Takes Down Robber

An eyewitness filmed when a thief was shot by a guy carrying a six-pack of beer at a convenience shop.

Footage of a botched robbery at a petrol station convenience store in Cassopolis, Michigan, has gone viral.

On July 27, surveillance footage shows a guy in all black and a mask entering the Stone Lake Marathon Mini Mart.

The police report that the guy told the cashier, “You know why I’m here.”

The man allegedly walked behind the counter to intimidate the shop clerk as a customer approached the checkout with a six-pack of Miller Lite. The suspect is said to have threatened the convenience store worker, prompting him to raise his hands.

Simultaneously, the customer clutching the six-pack of Miller Lite shot the would-be thief. Three rounds were fired by the customer, who had a valid concealed carry permit. He stepped around the counter and fired three more shots. Then, he gave a barrage of seven shots at the alleged thief.

The client allegedly shot the criminal in the face, back, and arm many times. As the supposed robber collapsed, the customer sprinted to his vehicle to get a fresh clip for his weapon. The armed customer kept the suspect at gunpoint until the police arrived.

Police said the robbery suspect did not have a gun but threatened the store clerk with a box cutter. The armed customer informed police that he did not see the robber’s weapon but saw the panic on the cashier’s face.

According to official documents, the accused is 35-year-old Cornelius Anthony Martin.

On Wednesday, he was discharged from the hospital.

He was arrested on three counts, one for armed robbery. According to the reports, Martin is a three-time criminal, which means that the attempted robbery might land him in jail for the rest of his life.

His bail has been set at $100,000.
