JEFFERSON DAVIS COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

A man in Bassfield is dead, shot at least 10 times by a store owner he was allegedly trying to rob.

Investigators say the owner, who was shot during the incident, was taken to Forrest General Hospital for surgery and is expected to recover.

LeRobert Young of Bassfield, born in 1978, was pronounced dead at the scene.

According to investigators, the gunman entered a Get and Go convenience story early Monday morning outside Bassfield in Jefferson Davis County on Highway 42 and demanded money.

Well....over ten times means something. Just what the hell number is it? You reporters can do better than that! I give the store owner at least a hundred freedom points for every shot over the first 10.....

Everybody knows that just 10 rounds can save your state 100% of the dollars it would have otherwise spent on incarcerating just one dirt-bag.

Isn’t a happy ending until the owner makes a full recovery and the DA decides not to press charges or the Grand Jury “no bill”s him.

If you have to protect yourself by pulling the trigger, pull it until the clip is empty. Sounds like he did.

“Allegedly” comes into play usually only when criminal charges apply. Good news for the owner.

No matter how hard the “progressive”, liberal DemocRATS work to make crime a safer and more rewarding profession, Americans continue to throw obstacles in their way. LOL! They’re throwing a lot of lead too!
