Mid-South Convenience Store Owner Shoots Accused Robber

After two previous hold-ups 67 year-old Boonie Crawford decided enough is enough. Crawford went out and got a permit and bought a gun. On Sunday, July 15, 2007, that weapon came in handy. His store is KC’s Market and Deli in the 4900 block of Austin Peay Highway just outside Raleigh.

The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office says Crawford used his new gun to shoot an armed robber. Police identified the guy as 24-year-old Aaron Thomas. Thomas was rushed to a local hospital with a gun wound

This is the third time this store has been robbed since last December 2006. The last time the store was robbed was on May 25, 2007.

Right now police are investigating if Aaron Thomas was involved in those robberies.
