Georgia Store Workers Shoots Robbery Suspect 8 Times

On April 28, 2023, an employee at a Shell Gas Station shot a robbery suspect eight times. 

According to Flagler County Sheriff’s Office deputies, a black man entered the gas station and demanded that the clerks give him all the money in the register. The suspect claimed to have a firearm during the robbery attempt but never drew his weapon. 

The suspect subsequently left the store with roughly $90 in cash and other items. 

The suspect’s vehicle was discovered by the St. John’s County Sheriff’s Office traveling north on I-95 in St. Johns County. The Florida Highway Patrol, the St. John’s County Sheriff’s Office, the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, and the Nassau County Sheriff’s Office pursued the vehicle on I-95 across various counties until the suspect reached the Florida/Georgia line. Once the suspect crossed into Georgia, the Camden County Sheriff’s Office began pursuing the suspect.

Once in Camden County, GA, the Kingsland Police Department deployed Stop Stick hit on the vehicle on I-95. The vehicle stopped and the suspect began fleeing on foot. The suspect then went into a convenience store close by, drew out a firearm, and demanded that the clerk give him his keys. The suspect subsequently commandeered the clerk’s vehicle and started fleeing the scene but later crashed the vehicle through the front of the convenience store. The suspect then got out of the vehicle and chased the clerk and a customer through the store and a scuffle ensued.

In the midst of this chaotic scene, the clerk was able to arm himself and shoot the suspect roughly 8 times per Georgia law enforcement. The suspect was subsequently taken into custody and transported to a hospital for treatment for his injuries. 

The clerk, who was now armed, shot the suspect approximately 8 times according to Georgia authorities. The suspect was taken into custody and transported to a hospital for his injuries. The suspect was identified as Qwinntavus Kwame Jordan who was in critical condition. 

Such scenarios of lawful citizens using firearms in self-defense against criminals are rarely covered by the corporate media. Per research by criminologists Dr. Gary Kleck and Dr. Marc Gertz, there are roughly 2.2 to 2.5 million cases of firearms used in self-defense in any given year.

While law enforcement should be commended for their role in maintaining public order, they’re limited in their ability to defend the public from criminals. At the end of the day, it’s lawful citizens who are the most effective first responders against criminals.
