Armed Robber Thwarted by Good Guy with Gun at Georgia Fast Food Joint

An armed robber held up the Zaxby’s fast food joint in Alpharetta but was quickly neutralized after a bystander with a gun stepped in.

According to police, the bystander stepped in and shot a would-be robber.

“I’m glad somebody was there to help the people who could have been a victim,” customer Shameerah Bates told the TV station.

The attempted armed robbery took place late Sunday.

Police said an armed robber approached the manager in the parking lot and tried to rob him at gun point.

“An independent witness observed the robbery in process, and intervened in the robbery, and shot the suspect after the suspect pointed his firearm at the witness and the victim,” Alpharetta Police Lt. Andrew Splawn told FOX 5.

When police arrived on the scene, the suspect had fled into the nearby woods.

However, when the suspect was eventually located, police found he had two bullet wounds to his leg.

The suspect was rushed to the hospital and will face a number of charges, including armed robbery, aggravated assault, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, The New York Post reports.

Police confirmed the bystander with the gun will not be charged.

Police said the bystander with the gun will not be charged.

“Georgia law allows a person to use reasonable force to protect themselves or a third party when they believe an individual or themselves is going to suffer serious bodily harm or death,” Splawn said.

“We do believe this is going to be a defensive third-party incident, so at this time, we don’t anticipate any charges for the witness.”

“I’m glad he was here and was able to stop him. People do stupid stuff, and there’s consequences,” said Angie Trapino, another Zaxby’s customer.

The manager was taken to hospital with some superficial injuries, and he is expected to be OK.
