Three men accused of trying to rob a couple Friday afternoon as they walked to their car outside a DeKalb County [Georgia] Kroger were shot in the shopping center’s parking lot, police said.
The couple were inside the store at the Wesley Chapel Square shopping center when they were followed by the three men, DeKalb police spokeswoman Shiera Campbell said.
Police said the male victim exchanged gunfire with the alleged robbers, injuring them. One of the men checked into the hospital, and the other two were found at the scene and brought to the hospital by first responders, police said.
Still, the authorities weren’t about to let this go by without some sort of rebuke:
“There was a great risk of people being killed,” Campbell told Channel 2 Action News. “People are lucky that no one else was hit.”
Blame the robbers. Three of them couldn’t hit that one guy, and he was evidently skilled enough to take them out without random shots going every which way.
