Store employee uses shotgun to frighten off attacker, MLive.com, Michigan, 07/18/14

An employee of Brother’s Market in Flint, Mich. ordered a man to leave the store after he spotted the man attempting to shoplift. Before the alleged shoplifter left, he threatened to come back to the store and shoot the employee. Roughly two hours later, the man returned to the store and pointed a gun at employees. However, one of the employees responded by retrieving a shotgun, which prompted the criminal to flee.
Police caught up with the criminal a short time later. Having been previously convicted of a felony, the man faces federal gun charges.
