Store Clerk Shoots Suspect, Foils Robbery

Breitbart – by AWR Hawkins

An armed clerk shot a suspect and foiled a robbery at the Cowboy Store in Fort Worth, Texas, on Wednesday morning.

The Star-Telegram reports that the incident occurred around 4:00 a.m.  

The Dallas Morning News reports that the suspect, 27-year-old Kenneth Darnell Bridgewater, was armed when he entered the store; he attempted to rob the business but was thwarted by an armed clerk who shot him in the leg.

Bridgewater was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries and charged with aggravated assault.

He has a criminal record that includes “aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, robbery, burglary and drug possession.”

  1. That’s the way to STOP a person from violating your property! Precisely the purpose of instituting the 2nd article to our Bill of Rights which does not give us our rights nor enumerate ALL of them, simply names some of the unalienable rights every man is born with.

    Good job!
