Armed Citizen Stops Bank Robbery in Spokane, WA

As reported, a Spokane, Washington armed robbery of a credit union was stopped by an armed citizen who was lawfully exercising his right to concealed carry.

Police say that an armed robber entered the Spokane Teacher Credit Union, and climbed on the counter as part of a robbery attempt.  A customer in the bank reportedly grew his lawfully carried handgun and fired a shot, striking the robber in the upper chest or shoulder, causing the robber to flee.  No injuries to any employees or customers were reported, and police are searching for the robber.

This is not the first time that I’ve written about a bank robbery being stopped by an armed citizen.  As just a few examples from this website in years past, this bank robbery was stopped by an armed citizen, as was this ATM robbery.  So was this bank robbery.  Concealed carry works.
