Two men attempting to steal tools at the Coastal Farm & Ranch store Saturday in Marysville, Washington were met with what can only be described at a “group of armed citizens” that were determined to stop the thieves from finishing their robbery.
As the robbers jumped into their get away vehicle, they were suddenly surrounded by six (6!) grown men with handguns drawn and pointed at them. The driver of the Honda Civic attempted to flee and as he took off, shots were fired. As a result, two tires were shot out. The vehicle was found about 2 blocks away, and the suspects were later apprehended elsewhere.
But back to the armed citizens – let’s discuss this further! Some questions that need to be asked and answered include:
- Who coordinated the armed standoff or was it a natural occurrence?
- Did the men ever discuss being in public and having to draw their weapons together?
- What was the background during the actual shooting?
- Would you get involved with trying to stop a thief that was robbing a store you had nothing to do with?
Let’s get to the bottom of these and more questions in the comments section and on our Facebook page now!
