Ever since the Blockbuster had been robbed last January,
Robert Shockey kept watch over his son when he worked the night
shift there. One night the protective father was waiting for his son
as he closed out the cash register. Shockey had just entered the
store when suddenly two masked men burst through the front door. The
two intruders shouted obscenities and threatened to harm him and the
two employees still in the store. One man, armed with a rifle,
pointed the gun at Shockey, according to witnesses. But when the
gunman turned away for a moment, Shockey saw his chance. "I pulled
my gun and told him to freeze and drop the gun," he said later.
Instead of complying, the gunman pointed his rifle at Shockey, who
then fired two shots at the gunman, striking him in the chest and
neck. The gunman's cohort then reached for the rifle and Shockey
shot him, as well. "I felt like I didn't have a choice," he said. "I
felt they had full intentions of killing us."
