Crooks sometimes don't consider the weight of numbers when
they attempt a robbery. Three would-be robbers, one of them armed
with a pistol, attempted to hold up McCary's Bar and Grille in St.
Andrew's South Carolina, but didn't bank on the crowd resisting so
heavily. A cook slipped out the back door and alerted a customer
outside of the robbery in progress. The man grabbed a pistol from
his car and spotted one of the robbers leaving the building. The
man tackled the first suspect who was held for police by other
patrons. The armed customer then entered the establishment, saw the
robber holding a gun to the owner's head and opened fire. The thug
stumbled out the door and collapsed across the street. The third
crook got away, but was later captured when he returned to the scene
to check on his accomplices.
