The family of a suspected thief is lashing out after their son was shot during an armed robbery.
Relatives of Adric White, 18, believe the Good Samaritan who opened fire should have “just left the store.”
The Good Samaritan told FOX10 News he was shopping at the Family Dollar on Stanton road when he noticed a masked gunman leading one of the employees to the front of the store.
“He had the gun to his head. He had him on his knees,” said the man.
“I drew my gun on him and I said ‘Hey don’t move.’ At that point he swung around and before he had a chance to aim the gun at me I fired. I didn’t want to shoot him.”
The family of Adric White, an armed robbery suspect who allegedly held up a Mobile, Alabama, Family Dollar store in November, is speaking out against their son’s shooter.
White was not killed in the attack. Rather he was shot five times, then transported to USA Medical Center, where he remained in police custody.
Adric was out on bond for robbing The Original Oyster House at gunpoint before the Family Dollar attempt.
