I believe, in over 1,000 defensive gun use stories that we’ve documented, this one has the highest number of rounds on target. An alleged armed robber entered the Get and Go Convenience Store in Jefferson Davis County, Mississippi. The armed suspect attempted to rob the store, and during the process of taking money, the suspect shot the store owner in the leg and then fled according to the WDAM. The Clarion Ledger puts the number of hits at 11. However, the incident wasn’t over yet. The suspect, came back into the store after apparently realizing that he didn’t get all of the cash. This ended up being a fatal mistake for the suspect. The store owner had armed himself with a 9mm handgun. The owner fired 10-13 shots at the suspect, hitting him at least 10 times. The suspect was declared dead on the scene. The store owner was treated for his wounds at an area hospital and is expected to make a full recovery. This is the 11th defensive gun use we’ve documented in the state of Mississippi and the 1013th overall.
