INSANE Surveillance Video Shows Mother, Daughter in Shootout W/ Shotgun-Wielding Thug

Under normal circumstances, surveillance video might capture a small fraction of a life-threatening self-defense situation.

This time, video shows nearly every second of the insane confrontation.

Local media outlets posted a video Saturday from Forest Acres Liquor Store in Tulsa, Oklahoma, that shows a heart-stopping, two-minute shootout between a mother, daughter, and a shotgun-wielding robber.

Tina Ring, 53, and her daughter, Ashely Lee, 30, were working behind the counter at the family-owned liquor store Thursday night when a man, who police later identified as Tyrone Lee, entered the front door and demanded the money from behind the cash register.

“I didn’t want him to hurt my daughter,” Ring told the Tulsa World on Friday. “That was my main thought.”

Ashley Lee, who is not related to Tyrone Lee, appears in the video to open the register and the man begins grabbing money. Both women stand back and allow the would-be thief to take as much cash as he could hold.

“All I was thinking was ‘Just give him the money and go,’ and next thing I know, I see him back in my face,” Ring said.

That was his mistake, for as soon as the suspect returned for more cash both women opened fire. They had each grabbed a pistol in the time it took the suspect to return, and they weren’t shy about using them.

“The clerks did an outstanding job of fighting him,” Tulsa Police Sgt. Dave Walker told KJRH.

In the video, Tyrone Lee can be seen re-entering the store while both women crouch behind the counter with their pistols at the ready. Lee checks behind the register, and Ring fires a shot at point-blank range. She fires two additional shots as he flees, and Ashley Lee pulls out her phone and calls the authorities.

After Ring’s initial three shots, Lee turns around and enters the store for the third time. Ring fires another two shots as he approaches, but he continues moving forward even though he has dropped his shotgun.

He lunges at Ring and tries to wrestle her handgun away from her. During the struggle, Ashley Lee fires another shot at the suspect’s back and appears to hit him without injuring her mother.

The suspect wrestles the gun away from Ring, hits her with it, and turns around to fire at Ashley Lee. Fortunately for the woman, Ring’s five-shot revolver is empty and Tyrone Lee fails in his two attempts to shoot her.

The confrontation ends seconds later as the suspect collapses behind the counter and the two women flee the store.

It isn’t clear from the video which shots landed and which didn’t. The suspect continues fighting throughout the tape, and even gets up and leaves the store after the women escape.

Authorities report that the suspect checked himself into a nearby hospital and is being treated for multiple gunshot wounds. He is expected to survive.

    It’s always easy to “Monday Morning Quarterback” and second guess. Bottomline, the store clerks survived which means they did what was necessary. That does not mean, however, that one cannot learn useful things from analyzing their reactions. The biggest problem was allowing the perp, when he came back, to get physically close to them – put something (a counter, a shelving unit, even a chair) between you and the perp. The best thing about a gun is the ability to engage at a distance – take advantage of that and make sure that you are protecting yourself). Putting yourself into position to be grappled with and disarmed is potentially dangerous and, had “Mom” not unloaded her gun in the perp, he could very well have killed the daughter with it once he took it from the mother. Obviously, they might consider more powerful handguns and/or more potent loads (I favor “RIP” rounds), but even big bullets with expandable tips are not a guarantee of success. This chap appeared to be tripping and it is unlikely that any number of shots, save those critically placed, would have incapacitated him. I watched a guy on PCP survive far more than this, so it’s not necessarily bad shooting on the part of the women that left him still standing and fighting.

    • Rich July 3, 2020, 2:31 pm

      Your right it is easy to Monday morning quarterback and since you thought they should use bigger guns, maybe a 50 cal is more to your liking. Internet commandos are a dime a dozen.

  • TOM February 15, 2019, 8:57 am

    Way to go ladies! Just remember “bigger” is “better”; 2 to the chest, one to the head! Then a few more for good measure.

  • Andrew Ling July 21, 2018, 12:46 pm

    The criminal was really high on dope. Appears he had no fear. Walked right past the round that opened a bleeding wound on him. 9MM and 380 never bothered him. Very, very dangerous criminal! I am happy for the ladies and at the same time, I am sad for them to be making a living that way. I would do all in my power to keep my ladies away from harm’s way.
    That said. I laud the ladies, once more. This is the reason why we have the 2nd Amendment and our God given right to defend ourselves from harm. Anyone qualified to own and bear arms should train to do so. Defend what is rightfully yours.

  • Chick July 6, 2018, 3:47 am

    Well, this was stupid. Why did the women stop shooting?

  • Dusty Ayers March 17, 2018, 12:06 am

    Wow. Great job ladies. Crazy video.

  • Luis March 5, 2018, 4:02 pm

    Well done ladies, I was expecting the subject be neutralized but you girls did a well done fight in this world Is full of evil and we cannot let criminals won the battle always on your six and god blessed the two of you

    • Luis March 5, 2018, 4:04 pm

      The suspect got the message

  • Robert Hubbs March 5, 2018, 12:44 pm

    To bad that at least one shot was not fatal. The system will eventually release the dirtbag to repeat the offence on other good citizens. Hope for a fatal shot next time. There will most likely be a next time.
    .

  • Jim March 4, 2018, 6:15 pm

    The only part that bothered me was the sad ending. (The part where the perp was expected to survive.)

  • Jim March 3, 2018, 11:14 pm

    I would say these women put up one helluva fight. If I ever decided to go bad, I would skip their place. Congrats ladies!

  • Gman March 3, 2018, 10:34 pm

    I cringed watching the one shot when the turd was between the girls and the one girl fired at his back. Thankfully she didn’t miss and shoot the other girl as the turd was struggling trying to wrestle the gun away.

  • e March 3, 2018, 2:56 pm

    The video can’t be found on my screen. Imagine that, YouTube stopped a video showing the proper use of a gun. To protect a life and not a political agenda. Media being manipulated, again again and again.
    Only thing I would say to this mother daughter duo is to use a larger caliber. I’m glad they weren’t hurt and he was!

  • Honest Glenn March 3, 2018, 1:00 pm

    Don’t wound the Jerks! SHOOT TO KILL! Now the taxpayers have to pay for his medical bills, lawyers to sue these women for shooting him & the list will grow! These scumbags need to be put to sleep & fed to starving hogs!

  • Ricky Price March 3, 2018, 12:00 pm

    When you get the drop on a thug. Shoot as many times you can, for the upper part of the body.

  • J-DAWG March 2, 2018, 11:04 pm

    My only complaint is that the young girl grabbed the phone before it was half over and kept talking to 911 operater. Throw the phone down after dialing and take care of business!

    • Rattlerjake March 3, 2018, 10:32 am

      This shows one major difference between women and men in a gunfight; if it had been a man “victim”, he would have had a semi-auto handgun with higher capacity AND he would have engaged the perp until DEAD! Two women running a liquor store is a NO-GO!

  • Jason March 2, 2018, 7:33 pm

    Damn, he will live to rob another day.

    • Gregory Huhn March 3, 2018, 9:07 am

      I’ll bet he doe’s this again. Maybe next time his time will end. Badly for him GOD Willing.

    • Honest Glenn March 3, 2018, 1:04 pm

      Exactly Jason! Do it right & shoot to kill!! His mama doesn’t even want him just axe her!!

    • Khay August 17, 2018, 9:34 am

      Can’t know for sure, but this dirtbag seemed to be shouting at the women – angry that he got shot. Typical in our society … perpetrators – and those that defend them – somehow believe THEY are the victims and are being treated unfairly.

  • Peter March 2, 2018, 7:31 pm

    Thank God nothing serious happen to the mother and daughter. The lesson for the mother to learn was do not stay close to the criminal so they can grab your gun. It could have been a tragedy for the women. You must stay behind something to protect yourself.

    Need to build a cage for protection. This will greatly minimized personal injury and tragedy. Boo do not worth your life and limb. Hoo!

  • Bob Smith March 2, 2018, 5:07 pm

    Lots of good lessons learned from this video. Mom and daughter must have had the angels watching over them I counted about 10 times they both should have died. Small caliber pistols are great at the shooting range, but not when you have a pissed of criminal trying to kill you.

  • skipNclair March 2, 2018, 3:57 pm

    Great joh ladies, the only thing that would have been better, is if he had died on the spot. He will recover, get a light sentence and be doing it again when he is released. But still a great job, wonder what things would have been like in the world of Diane feinstein, and bloombug, and Paloosie?

    • Robert March 2, 2018, 4:40 pm

      Bigger rounds more capacity
      A perfect example for pushback on magazine capacity reduction. They should have had different weapons too. An 8 round 357 revolver or at least a 15 round striker striker fire pistol.

  • Eric Ryan Mello March 2, 2018, 2:34 pm

    My 8 1/2 inch barrel 44 magnum would have been in his face like a shark out of the water the second he came back behind the counter. I use high powered loads I’ve taken out 2 400-500 lb black bears with and would not hesitate one bit to use it against a twerp like this.

  • Adam Jeppson March 2, 2018, 2:01 pm

    Good reactions and will to live. Excellent job ladies!

  • Adrian Shell March 2, 2018, 1:56 pm

    Well ,so much for 9mm and .38 rounds, when they are obviously high on drugs. Why the military still uses them wonders me.

    • Bob Smith March 2, 2018, 5:13 pm

      NATO BS with the 9mm. A 147 grain hydroshock would do if you had about 10 extra rounds. You can’t beat a 12 gauge shotgun at close range. I carry either a 357 magnum or a 45 ACP. I really don’t have any desire to harm another person ever, but in a life or death situation I want kenetic energy on my side. I knife with a fixed blade of no less than 4 inches is also a good CQB weapon——No reloading!!!

  • frank March 2, 2018, 1:48 pm

    And please if you think this wasn’t real….watch again, this is as real as it gets…

  • frank March 2, 2018, 1:47 pm

    Some of the comments are from people that have seen too many movies. Even large caliber rounds don’t always drop a guy fast. I have seen 9mm rounds mean little difference in actually slowing down a suspect. With adrenaline flowing, they are lucky they even hit him. I think they did an excellent job. If those young women would have had a .45, they probably wouldn’t have even hit him, then he would have wrestled the gun from them and unloaded it on them. Great result, only better one would been a dead robber, IMHO.

  • Mike Watkins March 2, 2018, 12:45 pm

    This Mom and Daughter have a lot of guts, for sure. Now they need a little larger caliber for the next A-hole that tries to rob them. Too bad the bastage lived. It’s us paying for his medical care, his lawyers, his eventual incarceration, and no doubt he will be out in just a couple years.

  • Irondoor March 2, 2018, 12:41 pm

    That appears to be a large store. After the initial confrontation where the perpetrator cleans out the cash register and leaves, with a shotgun, no less, there is zero reason to hang around behind the counter where you are trapped. Put distance between you and the bad guy. Have your guns ready. Don’t let him get within arms reach if possible. Get a larger caliber gun with more capacity. Keep shooting (both of you) until he is on the ground. If he comes in to attack physically, get out of the way. Separate if possible. The mother actually went out and confronted him with a virtually empty gun. But, by all means, KEEP SHOOTING UNTIL YOU ARE OUT OF BULLETS AND THEN RELOAD IF YOU CAN.
    With a decent semi-auto in 9 mm or 45, they could have had a combined capacity of around 20-30 rounds of JHP, rather than the small pea shooters they had. Even if they only hit him with 25%, that’s 5-8 bullets in the body or head somewhere. Keep moving and keep shooting. Have a second or even a third mag on you. What if there had been two or three robbers rather than just the one? On second thought, get a shotgun too.

  • mtman2 March 2, 2018, 12:40 pm

    Yeah it was a fortunate outcome.
    Imagine had there been 2 or 3 armed perps-!!!
    Better to have s licked cubical wuth bulletproof glass and a control abke money transfer door that goes down to go under thereby not allowing a shot into the cubical.
    Tho a back cubical entrance into a locked office with see thru mirrors that see the entire store would be nice.
    The girlslives are worth whatever it cost’s.
    Yes with surveilance cameras at door and counter as well as a view of the wholestore with double remote lockable doors with wire mesh thru-out so perp can be locked in til LEO’s show up= would be nice as the creeps couldn’t even shoot their way out between the locked doors.

  • Frank Romo March 2, 2018, 12:00 pm

    Now, for those who want to witness a heavy firefight, look at the shootout in San Francisco, SFPD found a suspect hiding in a parked motor home. They surrounded the vehicle, then the firing ensued, no one states who fired the first round, 69 rounds later (quick fire) it’s over. No one wounded or injured or deceased, WTF? And these are a professional police unit, so, for those of you disparaging those two brave women, who held their ground and stayed in the fight, for their lives, go pound salt! I’m sure they fired with what they trained with at the range, it worked, they stayed in the fight, a larger caliber might’ve had too much recoil to recover, possibly hollow points might be in order for their reload. This proves that without any weapons, we’d be viewing a video of two dead store owners, great job ladies, stay in the fight and train to live!

  • mtman2 March 2, 2018, 11:48 am

    Am Proud of the girls- tho the dsughter needed to step up and just execute the perp. while was struggling for the gun. He could’ve got her gun and killed them both= it was close but mom showed tough.
    Of course it’s a hard thing to kill someone-!!!
    However the perp returned and made it a kill or be killed situation+ WOW – mom never let go(glad to see).

  • Mike22-250 March 2, 2018, 11:39 am

    I hope this POS rots in prison! To bad he is not 6 feet under right now!

  • Norm Fishler March 2, 2018, 11:25 am

    Did you notice that when the perp stuck the revolver he had just taken away from the mother over the counter and yanked the trigger, hoping to hit the daughter, there was no flash or report. Mom had already emptied the gun . . . Good show ladies.

  • Yeah right March 2, 2018, 11:20 am

    So many expert comments from people protected by a screen.

    • mtman2 March 2, 2018, 11:59 am

      Yeah – and you say what-?
      What if it was your store, wife and daughter- this thing could’ve been tragic because of a criminal puke.
      And I for one wouldn’t want to see it- so we replay such an event so as to pick out errors should we or others reading won’t repeat them should it hapen to us or them.
      *If the daughter had a round left should have walked right over. and executed that creep fighting for her mothers gun.
      Or if empty used it as a club with a round house th this sick pukes head..
      He could have got that gun and killed them both had it still had rounds-!
      It was a close call and that creep was determined and probably high on a few drugs.

  • Mr mr March 2, 2018, 10:02 am

    Great this scum bag comes into store does 1,000 or more in damage, has no health insurance. Emergency medical 100,000-200,000 $. Court fees total 100,000-500,000. And then he goes in jail for the rest of his pathetic life! At the cost of 75,000 a year. You think this LIFE matters when he doesn’t give a rats ass about else’s , then YOU pay for it. And that’s why you double tap the head, cost 1.00 for two rounds.

    • Tim Smith March 2, 2018, 10:39 am

      Right on! That said the Women did one hell of a job! I do think they will be getting a larger caliber weapon and doing more range time. Looks like they were shooting .380s or at the most .38s. Never the less their one pair of brave Women!

    • Leonard March 2, 2018, 11:22 am

      I bet he cops a plea, and doesn’t do more than 18 months.

      • mtman2 March 2, 2018, 2:09 pm

        Riiight – the poor perp has already suffered enough at the hands of two girls while he was trying to kill them(tongue in cheek)
        Turns out they’re all lucky to survive.
        Redemption is possible in prison he may find Christ to do good instead, thru a prison ministry and use his stupidity to help turn the tide for other young men who are heading for disasterous lives and causing heartache.

    • Marcy March 2, 2018, 11:46 am

      Right on sister. A few more shots to the head and heart and those worries are gone!

  • Sean March 2, 2018, 9:39 am

    And the worst part is that toad lived

    • mtman2 March 2, 2018, 12:08 pm

      Hey what a minute here- toads are very useful critters that eat fly’s and mosquitoes, ants, spiders and such. There great to have around your house and farm.
      That creep criminal as Dirty Harry decscribed as “dogs-hit that the dog hasn’t s-hit yet” .
      They used to just hang such at the 1st opportunity back when Clint was Rowdy Yates on Rawhide= no more problem nor expense.

  • Seaweed March 2, 2018, 9:14 am

    What where the girls shooting, B-B guns? I also believe this was staged.

    • Tim Smith March 2, 2018, 10:42 am

      Grow up! I’d bet you think 9/11 was staged also.

    • Jackson March 2, 2018, 11:17 am

      A drug crazed POS high on meth, bath salts, and whatever else can run dead from the hardest of hitting rounds. The guns that the girls had were, more than likely appeared to be, a 38 special, and a 380 acp, and these usually take several well placed hits to take down an assailant. Let alone an assailant high on whatever drugs

    • Leonard March 2, 2018, 11:23 am

      Looks too chaotic to be staged…

      • rudy March 2, 2018, 5:25 pm

        staged my ass you can see blood on the floor just past the counter where the robber hit the floor. Nice job ladies next time finish him off. End of story!!!!!

  • Jerry Herndon March 2, 2018, 9:11 am

    Kudos to both of these ladies. A bad guy comes in and sticks a gun in their face. If the robber had not come back after first getting cash all would have been ok. But by now these ladies have armed themselves and it wasn’t textbook shooting and reaction for sure but who knows how you would have reacted. These gals had the will to NOT be a victim and that’s half the battle. I owned and operated C stores for 15 years and I can tell you, when you work 12-14 hours, six and seven days a week, there is not a whole lot of time for the “range”.

  • Roderick J Gilbert March 2, 2018, 8:33 am

    I dont think we watched the same video…what i saw was two women who were lucky they survived using guns they clearly werent trained for…more ammo would NOT have made a difference as much as shot placement, cover, better ammunition. People like you need 2 mags of 9mm to accomplish what many of us can with 2-3 bullets…and give the rest of us a bad name because you train poorly and lack discipline…get to the range and get better and plan then it wont matter if she has a revolver or a mag fed pistol.

    • Dennis V. Nix March 2, 2018, 9:07 am

      Easily said Robert IF you have never been there. As a police and corrections Firearms Training Officer I can tell you it is pretty easy when nobody is shooting at you, when you are not under stress, when you are not the mother worrying about the daughter and vice versa. THEN you will find accuracy dropping. Look at the rounds fired even by highly trained police officers. I agree with you regarding tactics used by these ladies. When the thug came back in and approached the one woman she should have fired and never allowed him to get that close. When the thug was wrestling the woman for the gun, that is the time the other woman should have run in to shoot him again. They were fortunate to survive. But if everyone put up a fight like these ladies did crime would go down.

    • Marvin March 2, 2018, 9:15 am

      Any gun fight you walk away from is a win. Been in gun fights, frightening. Seen guys shot ten times with 45 cal, walking around. Even talked to a guy who was shot in his head who died later, acted like it was nothing. They did a good job.

      • Tim Smith March 2, 2018, 10:40 am

        Right on!

    • R. Louis March 2, 2018, 10:55 am

      Roderick – It is easy to armchair quarterback. Give credit where credit is due. The ladies survived and walked away w/o serious physical injury. It’s seriously different when the target shoots back. I do agree that a higher capacity handgun would have been better, however. Also, it just goes to show just how ineffective handguns are at stopping a threat.

    • Adam Jeppson March 2, 2018, 2:02 pm

      Tough talk from a keyboard.

  • Ty W March 2, 2018, 8:17 am

    Not meaning any disrespect to any of the other commenters at all, since I don’t presume to know anyone’s background, but unless you’ve been in the situation these ladies were in you really don’t know how you would perform. The bad guy was violently fighting back, and I’m sure they didn’t start their day out thinking they would be in a life-or-death encounter. Firearms training is extremely important, but not more so than the will to fight which both of these ladies obviously had. I commend both of them for staying in the fight for as long as they did. A larger caliber weapon may or may not have made a difference. In many documented gunfights a participant has taken hits from a .45 or whatever and continued their aggression. There are no guaranteed one shot stops from a hand-held weapon. You do the best you can with what you have at hand.

    • mtman2 March 2, 2018, 12:15 pm

      Yeah – they were girls who run a store protecting their lives from a rabid animal who came back= that would unnerve anyone.
      Clearly he was on some out there drugs- who else does that?

    • Mark Timblin March 2, 2018, 1:33 pm

      You got that right! Been shot at and missed, been shot at and hit….no fun believe. True more range time & training would make some difference. However when you are in a life & death fight all thought goes out the window other than the fight to live through the next few minutes. As retired military police, civilian police & corrections officer, I have seen shit that would curl your hair! I saw one guy while an MP this guy had been shot 6 times with a 9 mm by local civilian police. This POS had shot his GF between the eyes in front of her kinds then thought he could get away. He was remanded to the authorities on Ft. Hood, Tx. as he was active duty….note the “was” active duty. Doesn’t matter weather you are a trained police officer, or a store owner when the shit hits the fan you do what is necessary to control the situation. Too bad this pos in the video lived, I have seen it though hopped up on pcp, or meth, or whatever it is he was obviously high on. Shoot till the target is no longer moving, if that means both of these girls pumping every bullet they have into the perp then so be it.

  • SJ Darlan March 2, 2018, 8:17 am

    Good job ladies looks like they had a plan of action.Lessons learned here,I will bet this team has already been to the local gun store to upgrade.Next time there will be a funeral!Did you see the look on the daughters face from the get go,she was ready to go to battle!

  • joefoam March 2, 2018, 8:16 am

    Makes a good case for those who oppose higher capacity magazines. We all don’t get one shot one kill as promoted by the folks who want to reduce capacity of magazines. What if that was your mom or sister and she was killed because she ran out of ammo.

    • Raymond P March 2, 2018, 11:41 am

      I hate to say it but was a good thing for the ladies they did not have a high cap. magazine,they would both be dead since the bad guy got her gun from her and tried to shoot them with a empty gun.

  • karl bausha March 2, 2018, 7:57 am

    Looks staged!!

    • Dennis V. Nix March 2, 2018, 9:21 am

      Yeah sure it looks staged Karl just like the D Day landing was staged. We ALL know too that Nagasaki and Hiroshima were not real. Both were extreme close ups of a wooden match igniting. Sure.

    • Johnny Raygun March 2, 2018, 9:54 am

      Really? Think not, that bullet to the back was real. You can see the coat move with the bullet entry

      Karl, your bong is kicking out too much smoke there, buddy.
      Come back and look at the film when you sober up.

      • mtman2 March 2, 2018, 12:19 pm

        Aaaaahahahahahah – just glad their OK- but they’ll probly hit the indoor range after that to make sure if there’s a next time, as this was close…

    • David A Welsh March 2, 2018, 11:32 am

      Are you sure you’re not staged?

    • Canoeal March 2, 2018, 2:13 pm

      Grow up.

  • Lloyd Dumas March 2, 2018, 7:54 am

    The bad guy had to be on something and stone out of his mind, who would come back for seconds and even thirds. Good to see this had a somewhat good, we all can say what coulda woulda shoulda been done differently but under pressure and at the spur of the moment they did very well.

  • Infidel762X51 March 2, 2018, 7:35 am

  • Kurt T Hollyday March 2, 2018, 7:35 am

    Put the phone down and shoot until no longer a threat! Still excellent work. Try a little +P+P for penetration.

  • Bob March 2, 2018, 7:26 am

    Why did they lock him in? Once he had the cash he was headed out. Keeping him in the store escalated the situation and increased the chance that one or both of them could’ve been hurt or killed.

    • beeza March 2, 2018, 8:12 am

      THEY WON! Yes they should get better training, how many of you critic’s would have had the balls to defend yourselves.
      Its easy to arm chair quarterback unless you have ever been in that situation, or even unarmed attack you never know how it
      will turnout. But to do nothing to protect a family member. I think you should shut up. Well done Ladies!

      Did you even watch the video? They didn’t lock him in. He exited the store, then came back in. He also exited the second time when the mother was firing at him and came back in again. I wouldn’t want you as the only eye witness to an event. I recommend sharpening your observation skills.

      • David A Welsh March 2, 2018, 11:33 am

        Yep.

  • mka March 2, 2018, 7:09 am

    Good shooting for untrained people. They held their cool and did the best they could.A little target practice would have helped.

  • Sqm March 2, 2018, 7:08 am

    Great job armed American citizens. Needed a Taurus Judge for real justice to the intruder

  • Jesse Scott March 2, 2018, 7:01 am

    Guess we gotta pay for obammy son doctor bill. Love her ZZ Top t shirt!

    • Johnny Raygun March 2, 2018, 9:56 am

      No need for a racist comment. …. You give us firearms owners a bad rap

      • David A Welsh March 2, 2018, 11:37 am

        Not racist to point out that that punk was the same sort of hands-up don’t shoot thug that the Obammunist supports.

      • David March 2, 2018, 12:06 pm

        It’s not a racist comment, it’s a politically satiristic one. He’s referencing the Zimmerman shooting, when then President Obama decided to inject himself into the situation saying “if [he] had a son, he would look like Treyvon.” A completely stupid and pointless comment to make that, quite frankly, deserves to be ridiculed.

        Stop being so overly sensitive to perceived racism/sexism/etc… You make us firearm owners look like pussies.

      • mtman2 March 2, 2018, 12:23 pm

        Oh well – Obozo was the big mouth with the –
        “If I had a son he would look like him” dumb unneeded comment about gangsta wannabe Trayvon the criminal.

    • Pro2A March 2, 2018, 11:40 am

      Enough with the racist comments! I am so tired of the redneck population in this Country constantly making racist, bigoted statements. Stop seeing skin color and start seeing fellow Americans. There are good and bad people in every ethnicity. By making such an obtuse statement, I would have to put you in the “bad people” group until you grow up and mature and stop throwing around these idiotic comments that only aid in dividing our Nation.

      Trying living by this: Before you categorize a group of people, look at each person as an individual and give them an initial credit of respect without any prejudice regarding skin color, economic situation, clothing or other appearance criteria. Talk to them and about them and treat them with respect until they do something that loses your respect for reasons other than your personal bias.

      In the case presented above, the thug was Black and is very lucky to still be breathing, but, his actions do not represent all Blacks just like the last 3 mass-shooters, who were White, do not represent all Whites.

  • Kenneth Berry March 2, 2018, 6:19 am

    Get your sorry ass off welfare and get a job..then you won’t have to rob liquor stores. Too bad the girls didn’t get a head shot in there. Good work, ladies.

  • Roger F. Garner March 2, 2018, 6:17 am

    You ladies were very lucky. I wonder what kind of ammo you had? Seems it wasn’t powerful enough.

  • John Seppanen March 2, 2018, 6:14 am

    Get a Glock 32 and load it up with Underwood 115 grain Extreme Penetrator’s, ladies.

    • John Seppanen March 2, 2018, 6:15 am

      +P+, btw.

    • Jim March 2, 2018, 10:10 am

      Glock 27 with 10 rounds of .40 cal HP, fired on full semi-automatic (as the General in the CNN video said), would have stopped him. Never leave home without it.

      • Adam Jeppson March 2, 2018, 2:07 pm

        Perhaps in the future they add some short barreled shotguns to their armory.

  • George March 2, 2018, 6:10 am

    Tyrone….. Shoot him in his head. That will stop him.

  • Sam March 2, 2018, 5:56 am

    The best defense weapon for such confrontation is Taurus Judge with 3.5inch shell, fires 5- 38 caliber shots followed by 16 pallets, all going at 900 F/sec with a Crimson laser site. Need one to the intruders face and one to torso. He won’t be walking out of the store in one piece. Admiration to the mom and daughter team for their performance. Smith and Wesson also make similar gun that shoots 3inch shell with nearly similar performance. These burglars are high on drugs and don’t feel the pain therefore need heavier punishment.

    • Canoeal March 2, 2018, 2:31 pm

      You make a whole bunch of assumptions most of which you have no knowledge. First off you assume these women didn’t correctly choose the right gun for themselves. You assume they could actually fire and hold on to a Taurus Judge, I can’t, it hurts. And if they could you assume a judge with a 410 shell would not have hit both the BG and the mother if shot in that direction…The last is the stupid Idea the a different gun might have made a difference if the perp was high on drugs or adrenaline.
      The girls fought back, and survived the attack. Kudos to them, Maybe you ought to stop playing armchair quarterback in a game you have never played.

  • Barkus Rudis March 2, 2018, 5:36 am

    Good Job! I will bet these ladies now purchased guns with larger calibers! Even a shotgun shell pistol.

  • BoBo March 2, 2018, 4:54 am

    What a shocker. The robber was black. The ladies are lucky to be alive. You cannot show any compassion for the robber. You shoot to kill. If the robber had rounds left in the gun he got from the one victim The story would have been ” Two women killed by robber in liquor store holdup”. If you point a gun at a bad guy you better be able to put him down all the way. Ladies, Get more training. Your lucky.

    • william rogers March 2, 2018, 7:07 am

      I am happy they are alive. Proud they at least defended their ground. god forbid it happens again to them. I ” Garontee” they are better prepared now.

    • Roderick J Gilbert March 2, 2018, 8:24 am

      You should be shocked…fbi stats show majority armed robbers or larcenists in general are white males…just like most cop killers are white males…in fact 70% of all crimes are committed by white males…stop fake newsing…be glad these ladies were ok…and pray they get training (she almost shot her mom) and heavier caliber pistols.

      • Trip 3 March 2, 2018, 9:46 am

        Fake newsing?? I don’t know what part of the country you’re in, but where I live, white criminals are not the majority. True, most of the nut jobs that commit mass murder are white males. But for every day stick ups, rapes and murder, I find it hard to believe that white males are mostly responsible. Where can I find those FBI stats?

      • mtman2 March 2, 2018, 12:28 pm

        Yeah well not with nearby black neighborhoods or IN. black “zones” are the perps white for armed robberies and mugging.
        Just go try walking tbru one soon as you can(unarned) – right you won’t…

  • Blue Dog February 27, 2018, 10:05 am

    And nobody is going to address the fact that the accused robber was shown to wrench the victim’s own gun from her hands and turned it on her daughter and TRIED TO FIRE TWICE only to discover that all the rounds had been expended? Were that one of those super-duper hi-cap tupperware guns that can hold eleventy hundred rounds, her daughter would be in the hospital right alongside this thief or worse. This is exactly what critics of concealed carry are worried about happening to women all across the country! Luckily – LUCKILY – this woman had fired all the rounds in the gun. Just imagine having your gun taken from you and used to kill your daughter in front of your eyes and that potentially being the last thing you see before you yourself are killed. Heartwrenching.

    • joe dirt February 27, 2018, 5:05 pm

      I will address it to say that the guns were not used properly. You fire until the threat is stopped. These two women had compassion for the life of this criminal that the criminal did not share. They fired half-heartedly trying to make the threat flee. That is not what a firearm is to be used for and that is why he was able to get up, wounded, and wrestle the gun from her. The daughter’s inadequate training in this same principle allowed her mother to be nearly beaten as well due to the fact that the gun was obviously empty and the mother could no longer defend herself with it. Now, weigh this against the attacker coming back into the store, and with no way to defend themselves, having the mother watch as her daughter is raped or murdered in front of her eyes just before he then shoots her as well. There is no scenario that doesn’t end in psychological damage for these two women and they will have to live with this – as will the criminal. The fact is – they are both alive now because of their use of firearms to defend themselves against a much stronger threat. They would have been totally unscathed physically had they possessed the conviction necessary to use them properly.

      • Jim March 2, 2018, 10:14 am

        Reporter: Sheriff, why did your deputies shoot the suspect 66 times?
        Sheriff: Because that’s all the ammo they had.

    • Mike V February 28, 2018, 9:35 am

      How often does that happen?
      Millions carry.
      This story is noteworthy because of how it went down, not because it happens like that every time or even half the time.
      Would the gun been successfully taken from her if she knew it still had live rounds in it?
      If it had been a “super-duper hi-cap tupperware guns that can hold eleventy hundred rounds” would she instead of firing her two last shots, emptied her mag on him?

      • Canoeal March 2, 2018, 2:18 pm

        They were not in the real sense carrying. The guns were, like my grandfather’s was Under the counter. Meant to be there when it was needed.

        • Mike V March 3, 2018, 9:46 am

          You’re correct. I was referencing Blue dogs concern for carrying.

    • rifflicks March 2, 2018, 6:09 am

      Blue Dog wrote……”And nobody is going to address the fact that the accused robber was shown to wrench the victim’s own gun from her hands and turned it on her daughter and TRIED TO FIRE TWICE”
      The ONLY reason he was able to wrestle the gun away was because it was EMPTY……IF it wasn’t empty she would have been able to shoot him as he approached her to get the gun…..Period….But you Leftist Loons decry anybody that needs a gun that holds more than 10 rounds.

      • Roderick J Gilbert March 2, 2018, 8:30 am

        I dont think we watched the same video…what i saw was two women who were lucky they survived using guns they clearly werent trained for…more ammo would NOT have made a difference as much as shot placement, cover, better ammunition. People like you need 2 mags of 9mm to accomplish what many of us can with 2-3 bullets…and give the rest of us a bad name because you train poorly and lack discipline…get to the range and get better and plan then it wont matter if she has a revolver or a mag fed pistol.

        • Mike V March 2, 2018, 10:05 am

          There was an eternity of time that went by from the last round fired from her gun to him wrestling it from her. If that had been a Glock 19, she would have likely had another 10 rounds on board. Sure she lacked proficiency, but not guts, she would have continued to shoot. I think it turning out the way it did is less likely if she had a different gun.

  • Mark N. February 27, 2018, 1:41 am

    Nice shooting, bigger bullets needed. I suspect that revolver is a .38, and it didn’t have the needed juice (which really isn’t news).

  • Andy February 26, 2018, 8:35 pm

    Well done ladies! When he came back after already getting the cash you don’t know where it can go from there. You fought a hard battle and survived. Most importantly you had the courage to take fight back. You ladies should start the #NotmeIwasarmed movement!
