An alleged robber with an assault rifle was killed Tuesday by a good guy with a gun in an Apple store in Dallas, Texas.
Fox News reports the suspect allegedly walked in about 2:30 a.m., through a door that was open for construction personnel to enter and exit.
The suspect was described as being armed with an assault rifle and wearing body armor. He was shot and fatally wounded after unsuccessfully attempting to disarm the stores security guard.
A Dallas Police press release summarized the incident:
The suspect, described as an adult Black male, attempted to disarm the security officer but was unsuccessful. The security officer was able to pull his weapon and fired multiple times striking the suspect. The suspect ran for a short distance and collapsed in the rear alley. The responding officers administered aid to the suspect prior to his transport to an area hospital where he was pronounced deceased.
CBS DFW published an Apple statement on the incident: The loss of life is a tragedy and we are grateful that no one else was involved. Apple cares deeply about the safety of our customers and employees and we are committed to providing a secure environment for all who enter our stores.

What I was thinking as well. “Tactical vest” ain’t exactly body armor despite the “look”.
True. Folks think a chest rig or an Alice pack is ‘armour.’
My money’s on post #18.
more likely a plate carrier with nothing in it. A solid head shot = DRT, not running and dieing in the alley way.
“Shoot ‘em out of the saddle” meaning fire up the pelvis area. No one runs away with a shattered pelvis. The target is as wide as the body trunk and doesn’t jink and bob like the head either.
” the suspect allegedly walked in about 2:30 a.m.”
“Allegedly”? So was it 2:30 or not? There must be cameras all over the place with time stamps. This “alleged” stuff is wearing me out.
I shoot eagles, cranes, doves, hawks and sparrows that are in flight.
More challenging and more like shooting in their direction...
So far, I am 0 for 30 boxes. LOL
When she asked why I was teaching her that shot, I told her, "You're going to be under a lot of stress if you have to shoot, and you will pull your shots low. I don't know a man alive who is going to take a shot in the balls and stay on their feet."
Was there a gun free sign? Didn’t the filth see it? Maybe construction work obscured it?
“The loss of life is a tragedy...”
Not this one.
Journalism is NOT the repository of America’s intellectual firepower.
My wife was on local news this week trying to get armed security for charter schools in our district. The regular public schools already have it.
The reporter’s idea of balance was showing my wife speaking for it at the schoolboard meeting, and then uncritically showing the district superintendent say why we couldn’t have it.
Hello? Shouldn’t an “on your side” reporter have been asking “how can we get it” instead of showing “why you can’t have it?”
Did the guy use a weapon stolen from Dick’s Sporting Goods-—and it was partially melted down and malfunctioned?
The only thing he should be fired for is giving first aid to the culprit... Apple will probably (eventually) have to pay out millions for medical malpractice by an employee...
RED FLAG LAWS: INNOCENTS WILL DIE!

That makes no sense. If Apple didn't want the Security Guard to use his weapon, why did they hire an armed Security Guard? Was he supposed to just let the culprit "pick off" whomever he pleased, probably starting with him?
BTW If you've ever been to an Apple Store and watched the "Geniuses" strut around, doing nothing, pretending to be cool, ignoring you while you needed help, you too might be tempted to bring a rifle with you.
