View Full Version : Gun Store Owner Responding to Alarm Encounters Thieves – 1 Dead, 1 Wounded

19-year-old Latorious Walker and 17-year-old Lamar Brooks struck a Louisiana gun store twice in the same day. The armed store owner put an end to their criminal careers.


The store owner filed a report with police after responding to a tripped alarm at his store and discovering several guns missing. Two hours later, the same alarm was tripped.


Police say the teen robbers and the owner had a confrontation at the store as he responded to the alarm.


“The two suspects were in a vehicle and they actually drove the vehicle at him, attempting to hit him. They hit the building and also struck him.” said Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s office PIO Capt. Craig Stansbury.

The owner told police he saw the driver pointing a gun at him. He pulled his gun and fired multiple rounds into the car – striking both assailants.


“We ended up finding the vehicle, I believe, on Linden-Louis road which is not far from the scene. Upon our arrival there we found the driver in the vehicle. He was deceased and had several gunshot wounds. The passenger was also there with one gunshot wound.” said Stansbury.


Police recovered all of the firearms stolen between the two robberies and took Brooks, the surviving suspect, into custody on multiples charges.


Earlier this month, a pair of criminals tried to rob a gun store in Arkansas with similar results (http://controversialtimes.com/issues/constitutional-rights/gunfight-as-dumb-criminals-assume-gun-store-owner-is-unarmed-video/).

Nah. The gun fancy love stories of store clerks and little old ladies slaying bad guys because single incidents outweigh, for them, the mass of US gun deaths.

Vigilante justice at work. Judge, Jury, and Executioner all wrapped up into one. I guess it saves taxpayers money.

Seriously? I believe that the race of the victims was mentioned twice so far, and by members that are not known as left leaning, you being one of them. I guess you are assuming the killer was not also a person of color.

I am amazed that an act that would be considered second degree murder plus a count of attempted murder for the survivor where I live is considered heroic and normal in a place not that far away. For what, a couple of thousand bucks worth of guns?

Kill (shoot at car) or be killed (run over, with car as a weapon). No doubt one can over think this, inject racial issues (if any of the three were of another race), or just whine about guns. This is cut and dried and a case where a weapon was properly used in circumstances that required it.

'nuff said.

The Bigfella

The proper use of a weapon would be the police responding to the alarm

Well, sure, Bigfella, but since they didn't, from the bare facts of the story it seems the store owner acted in self defense.

Steve McMahon

We are a bit backwards thinking up here. Store owners aren't typically alerted by their alarms so they can respond with guns blazing. Most store owners shell out a few bucks a month for an alarm monitoring service. When the alarm is tripped the alarm service rings up the police and they check it out. That being said, most thieves up here are not armed because hunting rifles are too cumbersome to stick in their back pockets, and the penalties for being armed in the commission of a crime are exponentially higher than for a simple B&E.

Self defense ? No way. The redneck responded to an alarm with a gun, not a fire extinguisher. If the redneck had blasted and killed the intruder with a fire extinguisher, then it would be self defense.

He was hunting for trouble. His fantasy came true....he scored a kill.

Steve McMahon

There's another one!

Do you have an opinion on the subject Donn, or do you just want want to sit on the side lines shouting cat calls to those of us who enjoy having a rational discussion on the issue ?

No, I'll stand with the guy. We had a winner of a local who, following his garage getting burgled, left his garage open with motion detectors and "bait" (pot and a purse). When two teenagers "cruising" went in the garage, he went out and without warning or opportunity of surrender, shot four shotgun rounds into the dark, killing a German foreign exchange student.

Guy claimed Castle Doctrine, but nobody bought it, including the jury--he's awaiting sentencing for deliberate homicide.

I don't consider your discussion "rational." Sorry.

No need to apologize. I respect your right to not express your opinion. A smart strategy, no threat of having to eat your words later.

I take a different tact myself - I wash my feet often because I know every once in a while I'm going to end up putting one of them in my mouth. :D

You're a newbie, but you've been here long enough to know my opinion on matters like this. I will let you know if it changes. Until that happens, I feel no need to restate it.

Just curious - how many thousands of posts one needs to stop being a newbie? ;)

There's a kind of inevitability about this affair, gun store, robbed twice in quick succession, car as weapon, many guns at hand. The thieves got away with it once but couldn't leave it at that. Stupid. The gun store owner did what he'd been prepared for.

No. We don't celebrate gun violence, and we don't celebrate robbery. I once came outside on my way to work and caught a guy in the process of stealing my car. When I caught him, he simply walked away. I had to go back in and call the police. They wouldn't believe he was a white guy. If I'd had a gun, I'm not sure whether I'd have used it or not. It would certainly have been tempting; maybe shoot at his legs so he'd still be there when the cops arrived.

I caught someone trying to steal mine once. I had just dropped in to see a friend on the way to an extended bushwalk and had my steel capped hiking boots on. His coccyx will never be the same. I just left him lying on the road and drove off. Probably about 1970.

trouble is that just shooting at legs and (as exampled by the radicals right here) you would become their definition of the perp, Just yesterday one of our Canadians thought that the robbery suspect who was being attempted to be killed should be jailed for defending himself. the only thing that explains that to me is that he was protecting his (imagined) collective turf against someone who would not bow to authority

you'll have less trouble if you either beat he double hockey sticks out of him or kill him outright... everything one does to protect himself is dangerous... you might get your house bulldozed, for instance

all of that takes presents of mind... we mostly are taken by surprise in those circumstances... it also assumes that the justice system cares to spend the money to catch the thief

I would hope you would not do that. Shooting someone needs to be in defense only, not property protection.
