Feel good story of the day.
Via Bearing Arms:
At 5:45 a.m., the 7-11 on 8th Avenue South in White Center, Washington was open for business much like any other day. The clerk, a 58-year-old Seattle man, was drinking his morning coffee as one of his daily regular customers perused the shop.
Much like any other day…. until a masked man entered the store wielding a hatchet and starting swinging it toward a customer before turning his attention toward the clerk.
Thankfully, the clerk’s regular customer, a 60-year-old Seattle man, was in possession of a handgun and a concealed carry permit. He drew his gun and shot the man, immediately stopping the attack.
“Fortunately, because of this customer with his weapon, this could have been a lot worse,” said King County Sheriff’s Sergeant Cindi West.
The attacker is described as a man in his 40’s and medics pronounced him dead at the scene.
Witnesses say the hatchet-wielding man didn’t say a word during his grizzly attack, and although the clerk suffered minor injuries to his stomach, it could have ended much, much worse.
