The family of a man who was shot after attempting to rob a local store in Mobile, ALA. is lashing out at the good Samaritan who shot him.

Relatives of 18-year-old Adric White say the man should have “just left the store” instead of trying to protect the people inside.

From FOX 10:

The Good Samaritan, who we are not identifying, 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.”

White was transported to a nearby hospital and remains in police custody. His family is sticking by him, and says that he should have never been shot in the first place. “If his (the customer) life was not in danger, if no one had a gun up to him, if no one pointed a gun at him – what gives him the right to think that it’s okay to just shoot someone?” said the relative. “You should have just left the store and went wherever you had to go in your car or whatever.”

19-year-old Tavoris Moss was also arrested in connection with the robbery.

Talk about misappropriation of energy. Seems like his family should focus more on him not robbing people in the first place than the good Samaritan who protected people.
