California NORCO An 80-year-old California liquor shop owner who was caught on camera firing a shotgun at a would-be burglar claims that he went hunting frequently when he was a child. After the early-morning altercation at Norco Market & Liquor in Norco, California, located east of Los Angeles, the armed suspect fled his place of business yelling, “He shot my arm off!”

An armed intruder was deterred from entering a liquor store in Southern California by Craig Cope, the store’s 80-year-old owner. I would always put my clients, employees, and myself first. Fortunately, in this instance, I was alone and only had to be concerned about that. According to “CBS LA,” the store’s owner, Craig Cope, said: “

I took care of it, and that was that.” I used to go hunting a lot when I was a kid, he continued. I would have a dinner there. As a result, I can still remember incidents that happened a long time ago. Cope told “CBS LA” that more people should vote, that they should vote wisely, and that he believed the politicians were to blame for this. I don’t think this will make me many friends because so many people don’t understand what it’s like to try to run a tiny business.”

And let’s face it, we have some terrible people when they’re letting people out. There are undesirable people. We don’t need undesirable people. “When that occurs, it’s a scary situation, so we need to get them locked up,” he continued. According to Mr. Cope, who talked to FOX11, I didn’t have much time to assess my alternatives when the man directly pointed the revolver at me. I wouldn’t give him a second chance.

I knew it was a semi-automatic weapon, and it might have been converted to an automatic version that would be more equivalent to a machine gun, but I’m not going to allow him to fire the first shot at this time. “When I glanced and saw them getting out of the car while wearing gloves, masks, and holding a weapon, I knew what was about to happen,” he continued.

The unidentified gunman, 23, who was seen holding a rifle on security tape, was later found at a nearby hospital “suffering from a gunshot wound consistent with a shotgun blast,” according to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Office. Even if he is still in critical condition, it is stable, and after his release, he will be imprisoned.

The three additional men who the police claim were in a getaway car during the attempted theft and were involved in a conspiracy and robbery investigation are still being held in custody. Media reports state that Cope returned to work on Tuesday, August 2, 2022, after having a heart attack as a result of the incident.
