INDIANAPOLIS -- A customer standing in line at an east side Indianapolis auto parts store shot a suspected armed robber demanding cash, police said.The would-be robber is, of course, a choir boy:
Investigators said John Perry fired his handgun and struck Carlos Ortiz, 21, in the leg at the Auto Zone in the 1100 block of North Arlington Avenue Saturday.
Saturday’s incident wasn’t Ortiz’s first run-in with the law. He was charged with robbery before in 2008, police said.But what really has me doing a face palm is the reaction of the customers:
Customer Sharon Mabeeward was in the store just prior to the robbery and had a hard time believing how Perry reacted.Sharon Mabeeward is as dumb as a rock. Good grief. What is it with yankees?
"(Perry) should have called the police. I don't think it’s right for people to carry all these guns. It's a crazy world," Mabreeward said.
It seems that no charges are being filed against our hero. For now.
