A citizen with a concealed carry permit prevented a tragedy at a convenience store when a man waving a hatchet entered the store and tried to attack the occupants.
According to Q13Fox, the incident occurred at around 5:45 AM at a White Center, Washington 7-Eleven. King County Sheriff’s units were dispatched to the scene.
The store clerk said the suspect entered the store wearing a mask and attempting to attack a customer with a hatchet before focusing his attack on the clerk.
The clerk suffered minor stomach injuries before a 60-year old Seattle man pulled his pistol, killing the suspect.
Witnesses say the man who was waving the hatchet never said a word during the incident.
King County Sheriff’s Department says the customer who shot the man did so lawfully and stopped a bad situation from escalating into more bloodshed.
“Fortunately, because of this customer with his weapon, this could have been a lot worse,” said King County Sheriff’s Sergeant Cindi West. “The clerk could be the one laying there dead on the floor right now.”
According to the clerk, the shooter is a well-liked regular who comes into the store daily who buys scratch tickets and coffee.
The axeman has been described only as a man in his 40s. King County’s medical examiner will determine cause of death and release identity at a later date.
