Barbershop Shootout: Concealed Carry Saves the Day

From WIS News:

A 35-year-old New Jersey man has been identified as the armed robbery suspect who was shot and killed in a shootout during a botched robbery attempt at a Fort Jackson Boulevard barbershop.

Richland County Coroner Gary Watts says Adeyemi Herschelle Hannibal died due to multiple gunshots wounds.

Hannbal and a second, unidentified man attempted to rob the Next Up Barber and Beauty shortly before 7 p.m. on Saturday.

Several people, including children, were inside the business when two armed men wearing masks demanded and stole money from them…

Two of the victims with valid concealed weapons permits opened fire on both men. Hannibal was wounded in the exchange, ran from the barbershop and collapsed outside. He was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead by medical staff a short time later, according to police.

CPD is investigating how the second suspect escaped from the scene, and whether he’s suffering from any injuries.

The victims were not physically injured during the incident.

This incident illustrates the value of carrying weapons concealed. Had our “good guys with guns” been carrying openly, they would likely have been disarmed. As it stood, they were able to choose when and how to begin defending themselves and others.

Kudos to our concealed carry brothers in South Carolina and to all who refuse to become victims of thugs. It’s not likely we’ll hear anything about this from the MSM.
