Tough to know what to do in a situation like this, especially with so many kids present. My only criticism, based on very few facts and perfunctory analysis, is that if possible the guy with the shotgun should have been taken out first and perhaps there should have been no engagement at all absent reasonable certainty both of them would be taken out of action before they could get any shots off. Everyone we would want to be lucky, was:
When asked for his money, the customer in Bookman’s chair told the suspect with the pistol that his money was at a chair along the wall, Bookman said.When that suspect turned his back to go search the customers sitting along the wall, Bookman’s client pulled his own gun and fired at the suspect. Bookman, too, pulled his weapon out and shot at the suspect, he said.
If attacked, do you want to be Victor or Victim?
