A Marine veteran recently leaped into action to thwart an attempted armed robbery at a convenience store in Yuma, Arizona.
The veteran, whose name was not revealed, happened to be standing in line at the cash register when two would-be robbers entered the premises, while one alleged accomplice waited outside the store. One of them held a handgun, which he raised and pointed at the store clerk upon entering. . .
When this Yuma, AZ veteran saw some criminals pop in guns high — he didn't wait for things to potentially go south.
“The Marine Corp taught me not to [mess] around,” he later said.
