Video of a West Virginia pharmacist fatally shooting an armed robber last Wednesday has gone viral.
Pharmacist and concealed carry permit holder Don Radcliff shot and killed 25-year-old Terry Gillenwater at the Good Family Pharmacy in Pinch, West Virginia, Wednesday morning.
Gillenwater entered the store wearing a bandana and carrying a firearm. When Gillenwater went to draw his gun, Radcliff pulled out his own handgun and opened fire.
Radcliff’s first shot hit Gillenwater in the chest. The second shot hit the suspect’s gun and knocked it to the floor. The third shot, fired when Gillenwater had moved out of the view of the camera, hit the robber in the abdomen and brought him to the floor.
Gillenwater died on the way to the hospital, according to local media.
Meanwhile, Radcliff expressed appreciation for being in the right place at the right time to protect himself, coworkers and patrons.
“I’m glad that God put me in a situation that I was able to do what I did,” said Radcliff.
No charges will be filed against Radcliff, said authorities.
