From the November 2009 issue of the NRA's "Americas 1st Freedom" Magazine, under armed citizen:
"The robber who burst inside a food market waving a gun seemed surprised to find eight shoppers inside. He ordered everyone to the floor, firing shots in the customer's direction and twice shooting store owner Mustapha Kassou. Police say that's when a man with a concealed-carry permit leapt to his feet and drew his .45-cal. Colt revolver. He told the robber to drop the gun. When the robber didn't comply, the armed citizen shot him, took his gun and held him for police. Onlookers encouraged the armed citizen to shoot the robber again, but he kept his cool and exercised better judgment. Kassou is recovering from his injuries. "[The armed citizen] saved a lot of lives," he said. "He was like an angel who came to save everybody." (Richmond Times-Dispatch, Richmond VA., 07/15/09)"
Anyone else find it interesting that they didn't mention that fact that he was open carrying? They just described him as a concealed carry permit holder, leading one to believe he was carrying concealed.
I don't think he is Jim.mpg9999 wrote: By describing him as a concealed carry permit holder (which I assume that he is),
Both the Good Samaritan and the store owner have been provided with exactly that as well as the complete process to acquire a CHP in Va.Grapeshot wrote:

... Thorne-Begland said it appeared that the shooting of the suspect was justified, although he emphasized that the investigation was in the early stages. ...
