Let's Hope It's Not His Last Hurrah

An 80 year old liquor store owner, in Norco, CA, defended himself with a shotgun against an alleged rifle wielding assailant who allegedly was attempting to rob the store according to reports. The rifle wielding suspect was heard to shout out "Aaaahhhh, he shot my arm off, he shot my arm off..."! The guy and two alleged accomplices sped off in an allegedly stolen vehicle and all were later arrested at the hospital where he sought treatment for a gunshot wound. Sadly the store owner had a heart attack shortly afterward and has been hospitalized. More at this source and this source. There is video, of the armed encounter, in the video below as well as in each of the source articles.
I wish I had an address to which to send the store owner a get well card that also would express - 'job well done'. Hopefully this will not have been his last hurrah and he will make a speedy and full recovery. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers folks. Once he is well again, I think he should be awarded something nice for his meritorious service to the community as far as vermin control goes and for possibly helping to keep the future crime and/or recidivism rates down. My guess is that at least the guy he shot will not be stupid enough to rob anyone in the future.
Way to shoot, pops!

All the best,
