At 9:30 a.m. on Monday morning, police in Durham, NC, responded to a shooting and attempted robbery at a local Mini Mart. The clerk, Zaid Omar, reported that a man had approached the counter and pulled a gun. Instantly, Mr. Omar found himself in a fight for his life.
“It was scary. He wanted to shoot me. It was so scary,” he said to reporters. “I took the gun from his hand, and we fight before I take the gun. And then I took the gun from him and shot him two times.”
Thats’ right, Omar took the gun away from the stick-up man and shot him. Multiple times.
That was the first time Omar had ever fired a gun. According to reports, he’s now considering buying one.
The attacker, later identified as 38-year-old Kevin White, was already a convicted felon. He was found around 10:00 p.m. that night in another part of town with a gunshot wounds to his legs.
After being treated, he was charged with attempted robbery with a deadly weapon and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
