Store Employee Handles Armed Robber With One Finger

Recommended Posts



His trigger finger, that is, when he shot a would-be robber Friday as he held a weapon to a second employee’s head.


Police said the armed robber, identified as Franklin McLaurin, entered the A&B Mini Mart in Lumberton, NC around 11 p.m. Friday night in an attempted armed robbery.


McLaurin approached one store employee and pointed his gun at his head, demanding money from the other employee.


Instead of producing money from the register, the employee produced a gun and shot the armed robber, saving his fellow employee who was being held at gunpoint.


The suspect was able to flee on foot and was found by Lumberton’s K-9 unit in the bushes just a few blocks from the Mini Mart.


McLaurin was taken to a local hospital but was later transferred to New Hanover Regional Medical Center for treatment of his gunshot wounds. Police say he is expected to survive.


The same convenience store was hit by another armed robber on June 16. In that incident, a man showed a handgun to a store clerk and walked away with an undisclosed amount of cash. Police continue to look for that man described as a black male with long dreadlocks, about 30 years old, 5 feet 10 inches tall and about 180 pounds.


Anyone with information on the June 16th robbery is encouraged to contact either Detective Lee Hinson or Blake Harrell at 910-671-3845.


Anyone else saying ‘guns rarely save others’ should talk to the store employee who is alive today thanks to his armed co-worker. (I’m talking to you, Chris Murphy)
