Criminal just HATE it when the good guys are also armed

Pizza Hut employee shoots would-be robber

A police report said Spencer Simmons, 44, attempted to rob the Pizza Hut on Broadway Street at about 11 p.m. Wednesday.

The report said Simmons pointed a .25 Raven Arms semi-automatic handgun at the store’s cashier and demanded money. The cashier loaded about $720 into a small bag.

Simmons wasn’t aware that a delivery man, Michael Shaker, had heard the commotion and snuck to the back as well, the report said.

Shaker shot the robber in the back of the head. I’m a little fuzzy about how he managed that if the criminal tried to point his gun at Shaker after a verbal warning, but all’s well that ends well.

Last I heard, Pizza Hut policy forbids weapons. Will Shaker lose his job over this?

    There are 3 people in this story, the criminal, the cashier, and Shaker the delivery driver. Did you not read your own post?

    Frank: As a matter of fact, I did read it. The criminal “lifted and swung his gun up towards” Shaker, and Shaker shot him in the back of the head. What I’m fuzzy on is how he got the rear-of-the-head shot if the criminal was turning towards him to raise his gun. I’m assuming that the criminal didn’t raise his gun towards Shaker without turning towards him.

    I’m not trying to imply something is fishy. It just wasn’t written up very clearly and I wouldn’t expect a back-of-the-head hit against against a guy turning toward you after a verbal warning.

    If there had been no verbal warning, it wouldn’t sound unusual. *I* probably wouldn’t have given a verbal warning, myself.

    The Robber turned and when Shaker shot he grazed across the back of a head that was turned sideways coming around to shoot Shaker. The shot put the Robber down without doing alot of damage to his head. I don’t like the wording but after talking to Shaker it makes sense how it happened.

    That makes perfect sense. I wondered about the angle of the hit to the “back of the head” because the perp survived.

    Thanks for the info.
