A customer at a Santa Ana, California restaurant, waiting in his car for his burger and fries, looked through the drive-thru window and saw a masked man with a gun walk in and demand cash. The driver then pulled a gun and opened fire on the armed robber inside.
At least one shot hits the drink machine. Next you see the man turns and he is wounded and falls to the floor.
“Tres balazos,” said witness and restaurant cook Daniel Acevedo. That translates into three bullets.
Detectives marked at least two bullet holes.
Acevedo said the shots came from the drive-thru window.
The cook said a man and two women had pulled up to order food at the same time the robber was inside. He does not believe they were together.
“Al mejor el carro quizo ayudar,” Acevedo said, believing the people in the car were trying to help, at best.
The shooter then sped off into the night. The stick-up man was hit once in the back and cops found him bleeding not far away. He was hospitalized and is expected to recover.
You make the call…did the man in the drive thru make a good decision? Was this a good defensive gun use or was he the irresponsible gun owner of the day?
