Shoats Grocery & Package is a small store where neighbors often stop
for breakfast or lunch, but owners Bobby and Gloria Doster said two
strangers who entered their business had more nefarious intentions.
Gloria Doster was rearranging boxes by the front door when a wigged
man came through it; behind him, another masked man announced they
were robbing the store. One intruder grabbed her and pushed her
toward the register, while the other kept his gun on her 62-year-old
husband. As Gloria tried to open the register, the assailant told
her she wasn't moving fast enough and shot at her husband. Not only
did he miss, but his gun jammed. Bobby Doster then retrieved a
.380-caliber handgun and shot one of the men while his wife drew a
9mm pistol she keeps near the register. They both opened fire on the
other robber. "I was trying to shoot and dial 911 at the same time,"
Gloria Doster said. Police arrived about five minutes after her call
and took the men to the hospital, where both died soon after.
On December 5th, the Alliance for Gun Responsibility, a group backed by out-of-state elites, announced it will pursue its most extreme anti-gun legislative agenda to date during the upcoming 2019 Washington Legislative Session.
