A suspected robber walked into a Family Dollar store in Georgia and pointed a gun at two employees.

“While one employee was handing over money to the robber, a customer walked from the back of the store to the front, and witnessed the robber pointing his gun at the employee’s head,” The Blaze reports. “He then pulled his own gun out and shot the robber several times. The suspect was pronounced dead at the scene.”

According to The Blaze:

“Police say the customer who killed the would-be robber will not be charged with any crime. They are hailing him as a ‘good Samaritan’ for stopping the robbery and possibly saving the lives of many people.”
