On February 22, 36-year-old Tyrone Lee, armed with a shotgun, tried to rob an alcoholic beverage store in Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA. The man demanded money from the cashiers, but they resisted him.
30-year-old Ashley and her mother Tina Ring could easily reach the gun hidden under the counter and shot several times at the assailant. In addition, they tried to block the doors so that Li could not escape.
All I could think about was: “Do not shoot at Ashley. Do not shoot Ashley. ” As soon as he removed the shotgun and walked away, I just started to press the trigger of the pistol.
After the first unsuccessful attempt at robbery, Lee returned to the store and tried to dislodge the gun from Ring’s hands. A brawl began, during which the robber managed to disarm the woman, but her daughter managed to discourage her. She picked up a pistol, fired the attacker in the back, and then, along with her mother, fled to the next house.
As local media reported , the attacker managed to escape before the police arrived, but his injuries forced him to go to the hospital, where he was detained. Currently, he is in intensive care, his condition is assessed as critical. The police stressed that Lee is probably responsible for nine other robberies that have occurred since the beginning of the year.
