A store owner, whose business had been the victim of several burglaries, ended up behind bars after opening fire on the man robbing his store. Gurminder Parmar obtained a firearm after being robbed at gunpoint, and when 21-year-old Christopher Driggers attempted to steal a case of beer, Parmar put a bullet in his shoulder.
The bullet didn't stop Driggers who sprinted out of the store with the beer. Police found him several blocks later, and though he admitted his crime, he isn't the one who got arrested. Police say there is no evidence to suggest that Driggers was armed, and the district attorney's office would have to decide whether or not to file charges against him.
Parmar was charged with assault with a deadly weapon.
