So much for the false anti-gun argument of someone being ‘outgunned’ by a rifle when you only have a handgun.
Customers told police that the man had come into the restaurant, armed with an AK-47, and robbed numerous people as well as the business.
One customer, who was legally carrying a concealed handgun, followed the robber into the parking lot because he was afraid for the safety of his wife, who was on her way to the Waffle House.
The customer called out to the robber, who turned and pointed the rifle at him, police said. The customer then shot the robber several times.
The robbery suspect, who police later identified as 26-year-old Antione Devon Cooper of Dallas, was taken to a hospital, where he is on life support.
Police said the customer was not arrested.
