Customer with gun kills 1, wounds another during robbery at Plantation shop By Andrew Tran Sun-Sentinel.com

PLANTATION -- One gunman is dead and another is in critical condition after they tried to rob a sandwich store and were shot by an armed customer Wednesday night, authorities said.

Donicio Arrindell, 22, of North Lauderdale, and Fredrick Gadson, 21, of Fort Lauderdale, entered a Subway restaurant at 1949 N. Pine Island Rd. and demanded money at gunpoint about 11:17 p.m., said Detective Robert Rettig, a police spokesman.

They then attempted to rob the lone customer, John Lovell, 71, of Plantation, by forcing him into the restroom, but Lovell, who was legally armed, pulled his gun and fired, police said.

"Ft. Lauderdale police were perplexed to find the deceased gunman missing from the scene, until witnesses said they saw him being dragged into the kitchen. Equally perplexing was the sudden and mysterious change in the restaurant's sandwich menu."

< vpc > Oh, the humanity! Another cruel episode of Gun Violence! When will it end? < /vpc >

That's only partly a joke. This episode absolutely will be counted as "gun violence" just as a drive-by shooting by the criminal-enabling gun controllers.

Now everyone needs to start sending good thoughts to his family, pending the civil suit that’s undoubtedly coming from the living perp (and the dead one’s family).

This is exactly what all armed punk robbers should face. The profession of armed robber should become a very dangerous profession.

Everyone should have the right to defend themselves inside or outside the home. If we dont’ have the right then the politicians shouldn’t have the right to have body guards or secret service...all who carry guns to protect their charges. They AINT no better than us and are families!!!
