In a bizarre change of event, these Crook’s Family is demanding justice after the store clerk defended himself from a robbery attempt.

Is this what we call a villain turns superhero? Nope, not this time.

A shocking incident was reported to 911 where a Dollar General store is being robbed and gunshots were fired.

“He pointed a gun at me. I had a firearm on me. I pulled my firearm, and I shot him in self-defense, and he shot back.” the caller said to the 911 operator.

Roosevelt Rappley, 23-year-old was the suspect who died in action while he was reportedly robbing a Dollar General store in Dayton, Ohio. After suffering gunshot wounds, the suspect fled the store only to collapse on the pavement outside. This all happened around 6:20 pm where Rappley died.

The police have released a statement via Lt. Jason Hall where he said, “The deceased did have a pending weapons charge that was waiting to move forward. Right now, we are looking into the possibility that this individual may have been involved in several other commercial robberies.”

Rappley’s family does not want to admit their relative was committing a crime at the time he was shot by the Dollar General clerk. Instead, they are portraying Roosevelt as an innocent man who fell victim to “a senseless act of violence” and is now a “victim of the system.”

But an eyewitness has debunked the family’s claim saying, “the suspect entered the dollar store with a gun and demanded money from the register and the armed employee confronted the suspect and that Rappley was pointing the gun at people.”

Dollar General released a statement about the attempted robbery in one of their stores:

“To protect the integrity of these measures, we do not comment on them specifically,” the company said in a statement. “We are continuing to review the circumstance surrounding this evening’s events in Dayton, Ohio, and are cooperating with local authorities in their investigation.”

And after few months of legal battle, a Montgomery County grand jury determined that a Dollar General worker who shot and killed a man during an armed robbery in October acted lawfully.

The grand jury declined to indict the store manager and found “that the store manager acted lawfully under the circumstances,” according to the Montgomery County Prosecutor’s Office.
