Charlotte Subway Employee Shoots Would Be Robbers Kills One Only Wounds Other
There is nothing more satisfying than the taste of a five dollar foot long sub, except maybe giving couple of bad guys a big ole' taste of instant justice.
According to several media sources, an employee at an east Charlotte Subway restaurant shot two men who were trying to rob the store, killing one of them.
The attempted robbery took place in a strip shopping center in the 600 block of Sugar Creek Road around 7 PM Monday night.
According to witnesses two black males entered the restaurant waving handguns.
"An altercation ensued when the employee did not comply with the suspects' demands; the employee fired his weapon, striking both suspects," read a police statement.
UPDATE: According to the police report, "the employee gave the suspects an undisclosed amount of cash. As they were leaving, the employee fired his own weapon striking McKenith and Thomas".
Both men ran from the store, but one didn't get far collapsing in the parking lot, the other later showed up at CMC Main.
Additionally two other suspects were being questioned by CMPD late Monday night.
UPDATE: CMPD has identified Jamal Steven McKenith, 20, as the dead gunman and Demetrius Nathaniel Thomas, 19, as the gunman wounded. Police also charged Deonna Brown, 19.
For those who feel bad for the punk who took two in the chest or maybe the back and died, I submit the following video of a Subway robber in action. Warning not for the timid.
