Gunman robs convenience store, owner fires back, suspect critical
One of the store’s owners said the robber put a gun to the cashier’s head and left with cash, but the owners met him at the back door.

LAPLACE, La. — One of the owners of a convenience store shot a robber who had pulled out a gun and grabbed some cash Thursday morning, according to the St. John the Baptist Parish Sheriff’s Office.

The incident occurred in the 400 block of Belle Terre Boulevard just before 9 a.m.

According to the sheriff’s office, the suspect, identified as 43-year-old Darnell Lee, robbed the store at gunpoint.

One of the owners — the one who did not shoot the robber — described the incident.

“I seen this guy with a gun,” the owner, who did not want to be identified publicly, said. “‘It’s a robbery, give it up, give it up.’ He put the gun at the cashier’s head and took the money and walked out.”

He said that as the suspect was leaving, his brother took out his gun.

“We met him at the back door, me and my brother, that’s what happened. He got shot.”

The gunshot hit Lee in the neck. Police said Lee was in critical condition.

The owner told WWL-TV the store had been robbed before.

Some of the customers outside of the store said the owner did the right thing.

“It just so happens he got shot, but it could have been the other way around,” one customer said. “An innocent storeowner could have been the one with a bullet in his neck.”

Deputies: Disgruntled customer fired shots at auto repair shop owner

LINCOLN COUNTY, N.C. – Detectives said they have spoken with the district attorney’s office about increasing charges for a man accused of opening fire at an auto repair shop owner in Lincoln County on Thursday.

Officers responded to Chemistry Lab Paint and Fab along N.C. 16 Business in Denver around 5:40 p.m after receiving reports that two people got into an argument inside the business and shots were fired.

Deputies said McQuiller, who was upset about some work that the shop did on his car, came into the business to confront the owner.

Deputies said McQuiller began firing a handgun at employees from outside the door and then went inside and fired another shot.

Channel 9’s Gaston County reporter Ken Lemon obtained 911 calls and they revealed the chaotic moments when investigators said roughly six employees were inside, caught off guard.

“He just came in and started firing,” the 911 caller said. “Shots fired. We’re getting, we’re uh. Somebody’s shooting at us right now. We’re inside the building. We need somebody here ASAP.”

The owner of the business then grabbed a shotgun from his office and fired at McQuiller, hitting with several small pellets in the face and neck.

Security guard kills man who rammed vehicle into grocery

By Matthew Reisen
A man’s apparent attempt to help a woman accused of stealing liquor at a Northeast Heights grocery by ramming a Jeep into the store did not end well.

A security guard shot and killed the man Wednesday night after he rammed the entrance to the Albertsons at Lomas and Juan Tabo with a teal Jeep, knocking down a tree and striking the guard in the process, according to the Albuquerque Police Department.

APD spokesman Tanner Tixier said officers believe the man was trying to free a woman who store employees say had been caught trying to steal liquor.

He said the security guard is cooperating with police and is not expected to face charges. Tixier did not provide the security guard’s name or identify the company he works for.

Well, Delta Whiskies and Whiskettes, today’s tally stands at one no longer among us in a remarkably stupid fashion, two inconvenienced while awaiting a court date, and again none in the wind.

I was triggered back into my college days where ordinary differential equations became a struggle after repeating Calculus twice. I had no idea there was such a place named for that bastard.

LMAO! 26Limabeans, you never cease to amaze and entertain with your pithy observations. I wonder how many Louisianans know Laplace was a French astronomer, physicist, and mathematician.

I’m guessing the Cliff Notes guide to solving differential equations wasn’t in print during your college days?

Talk about math 26Lima, I got in a 10 and 5 inch K&E & Bruning slide rules with folded CF & DF scales so I can use the above scales if the figures are off scale.


I had a beautiful K&E with leather scabbard and belt hook. Carried a bottle of talc to keep it from overheating…..

I got the 4181-3/leather scabbard and belt hook. They made them up until 1976 when hand held electronic calculators came into use. Had a couple of small plastic pocket ones in the 70’S I bought from Rexall drug store

In North Carolina, McQuiller ended up with “pheasant face”, to bad it was the owner that fired the shotgun instead of his Vice President.


Ambushed on the exfil. Dumbass Darnell. I love it that he got what he deserved and is conscious long enough to think about it.


“The owner of the business then grabbed a shotgun from his office and fired at McQuiller, hitting with several small pellets in the face and neck.”

No, no, no. Hit him in the nether regions. Whether ’tis a bullet or grapeshot, your aim should be to at least remove this wanker from the breeding population.


I may be mistaken, but that chart at the top looks like the one for lefties, not righties.

Remember when a calculator had four functions, was bigger than a thick paperback, plugged into a wall, and cost $100? That was over hours of minimum wage, and you could use it for homework but not for tests.
