Hair-raising CCTV footage shows an intruder charging into the empty store in Oklahoma on Thursday evening, brandishing a 12-gauge and cleaning out the cash till.
CRAZY SHOOTOUT BETWEEN MOTHER DAUGHTER AND SHOTGUN ARMED ROBBER
TULSA, Oklahoma — The mother-daughter duo who took on a dangerous armed robbery suspect are now speaking about their terrifying encounter.
Tina Ring and her daughter Ashley Lee were working in their Tulsa family-owned liquor store when they said a man armed with a shotgun entered.
When the gunman turned away, the women said they grabbed guns of their own and opened fire.
They said all they could think about was saving the other’s life.
“The next thing I know that I have my gun and I’m shooting him. And I get up and I shoot him again, and he just keeps coming back to me,” said Ring.
The alleged robber was shot in the leg but he didn’t give up.
He grabbed Ring, pistol whipped her and then tried to go after her daughter.
“Until you have a gun waving at you, you don’t know what you’re gonna be thinking. It happened so fast, but it seemed like it lasted for so long,” said Lee.
Lee was able to squeeze off another round at point-blank range, shooting the man.
The mother and daughter were finally able to run out of the store to safety.
The man is in critical condition.
Ring and Lee say they’re still here to talk about their encounter.
Lee does not plan to go back to work at the family’s store.
volaray: Wow. Looks like the younger woman almost shot the older woman at one point (or maybe she did?). Is there an article on this anywhere? And what kind of logic does the robber use to continue after being shot? Isn’t that the universal sign you’ve fucked up the robbery and it’s time to run home?
DjChuckey: I don’t understand why he went back in after leaving successfully.
guytoronto: It’s scary how unqualified the cashiers are in handling their weapons. If you have a clean shot at the target, you empty the gun into it. Both their guns were just beneath the counter. The thug could have seen them and grabbed them as he emptied the cash drawer. One cashier shoots at the thug as he wrestles with the other. She could have killed her coworker.
craylash: Almost shot her mom
benoxxxx: Glad to see the guy get what he deserved but the two cashiers were both really stupid about this. Both put themselves and the other at way more risk than necessary, and escalated a simple robbery into a life or death situation. If you want to risk your own life for a register of cash, be my guest, but when you put your colleagues at risk because you want to be a hero you lose my respect. On the other hand both women were equally guilty of this so whatever, and it seems as if the outcome was okay (even if it very easily could not have been).
pilot_error: Man oh man, weapon retention ain’t no joke. Those women are lucky to be alive. Mom should have never gotten close enough for him to grab the gun.
RAAM_n_Noodles: Must’ve been a .22LR lol
tylerjo1: And this is why we practice shooting.
Bigdx: Lookes like a 380. And a .38 380s have been k owm to bounce off the dome. Looks like they never shot there guns before.
