The confrontation was captured by surveillance footage from a nearby security camera. According to WWL.com, the victim-turned-vigilante wasn't done yet.
An NOPD spokesman says the intended victim declined to return the shotgun back to the robber, but instead used the weapon to strike and knock out the rear windshied (sic) of the vehicle. Police say the two suspects fled on Frenchmen to St. Claude and then to parts unknown.
It's easy to sit in-front of a computer, & say what you would do in a situation. Though I've never had a gun in my face, I once had a knife pulled on me.
I'm curious what situations others on Dream In Code have found themselves in, & how they played it out.
