…..it isn’t supposed to be possible for someone to defend themselves after the bad guys pull out their handguns; right?
Don’t tell it to this lady!
Going to be a little mean and put the criminals names out there; they aren’t killers and given how they were caught, I think their friends and future cell mates might want to know they got punked by an old lady.
The Springdale Police Department made two arrests on Saturday (Dec. 6th) in connection to an armed robbery in Springdale.
Marcus Gould, 25, and Leon Roberson, 20, face charges of Attempted Capital Murder and Aggravated Robbery, according to police. Roberson was booked into the Washington County Detention Center at 1:55 a.m. and is set to appear in court for an 8.1 Hearing on Monday (Dec. 7th), according to the detention center’s website.
Police said the incident happened around 9 a.m. Saturday at the C & S Gun and Pawn Shop at 1208 South Thompson in Springdale.
Employees reported two men walked into the store, one wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and the other wearing an orange hooded sweatshirt, police said.
“They split up, they both pulled out hand guns that looked like black semi-automatic pistols and began to rob the store,” according to Lt. Derek Hudson with the Springdale Police Department. “One of the employees also pulled out a weapon and there were shots exchanged.”
The suspects then fled the store on foot, leaving several shell casings and blood on the floor, according to police.
For those use you who didn’t watch the video — that’s right. Guns drawn, ready to throw down and one was shot by the owner. Guess that meme about once you are under the gun it is impossible to fight back is busted.
In an email, Sergeant Daniel Grubbs with the Fort Smith Police Department, said Gould arrived at Sparks Hospital with a gun shot wound to the forearm.
No word on how serious of a wound it was but I’m betting if Gould ever tries his hand again, he’ll tell his partner “Bring me my Brown Pants” before the robbery. Great job Ms. Shirley, If I am ever in your city, I would like to buy you and your husband dinner. Keep fighting back.
