Justice, the right way.

Customer shoots, kills armed robber

OMAHA, Neb. --
An armed robber was shot and killed in an Omaha business Monday night, police said. Investigators said a customer intervened and fired on the gunman.

The robbery took place at the Walgreen’s store at 61st Street and Northwest Radial Highway at 8:50 p.m.

Police said two masked individuals walked into the store. One of them was armed with a short shotgun. The gunman pointed the weapon at customers and at the clerk behind the counter.

A man who had a permit to carry a gun saw the robber point the weapon at the clerk and pulled out his handgun and shot the suspect multiple times, police said. The robber, identified by police as 18-year-old Marquail Thomas, stumbled out of the store and collapsed.

He was taken to Creighton University Medical Center, where he later died.

The man, Harry J. McCullough, 32, was cited because he didn't have a permit that allowed him to carry the gun concealed.

The second robbery suspect was detained until police arrived. Angelo Douglas, 17, has been arrested on suspicion of robbery and use of a weapon to commit a felony.

Investigators said McCullough was questioned and released after conferring with the Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine.

County Attorney: Shooter Justified

McCullough was in the store picking up prescriptions and buying ice cream when he decided to open fire on the suspected robber, his attorney said.

"My client acted quickly, responsibly, and certainly accurately," said attorney James Martin Davis.

The county attorney said McCullough acted quickly.

"He didn't let them get more than past the metal detectors," Kleine said. He decided he wouldn't file any charges, even adding that McCullough did the right thing.

"People shouldn't enter stores with short shotguns and try and rob people. And it's as simple as that. Fortunately, it turned out that the perpetrator was taken out, and the other perpetrator was arrested," Kleine said.

Davis said McCullough was crying in his office on Tuesday. He said McCullough was shaken up by what happened and will seek counseling.

The city prosecutor is still reviewing the citation against McCullough.

Aweeeeesome. And yes, walgreens is horrible. They sell booze here though. But I prefer CVS and Walmart for booze.

Yup, because the family will always insist he "was a good boy" and "didn't deserve to be killed."

Fuck that, one less criminal on the street. Good job McCullough.

"My professor told me that it's better statistically to let the kid rob the place and just wait for him to get bored of armed robbery. It's better for society that way. I know because I'm good and I study and get good grades, and although I've never seen anything about the world or what life is outside suburbia and academia, I know better than all of you."

Some people just need to be shot... Words of Clint Smith from Thunder Ranch. I even have the T-shirt. Weapon weilding criminals fall into the who gives-a-fuck category IMO. At least the tax payers won't have to spend hundreds of thousands on all the court costs, appeals etc.

The citizen probably saved an INNOCENT life and some money. Hats off, that would take some serious balls/adrenalin to pull the trigger.
