Joe Phillips just wanted to help a friend fix her car, but police
say that when he entered an auto parts store, an armed robber forced
him to change his plans. According to a police report, a 21-year-old
man brought a gas can into the store and began to fuel a small
motorcycle that was on display. When a clerk told him to stop, the
suspect pulled a gun, pointed it at the worker and announced he was
robbing the place. It was then that Phillips drew his own gun and
told the young man to drop his firearm. The two exchanged gunfire
and the would-be robber was shot. He was recovering at a hospital
and was expected to be arrested after his release. "That's exactly
like Joe," said Karl Phillips, Joes brother. "Joe's a good
Samaritan, always has been. Joe wouldn't have gotten involved if he
didn't think it was a matter of life and death." A clerk was also
injured, but is expected to recover.
