Gun-toting mom and daughter shoot armed liquor store robber
This is the shocking moment an armed robber got more than he bargained for when he attempted to rob a liquor store in Oklahoma.
The incident happened at Forest Acres Liquor store in Tulsa while Tina Ring, 53, and her daughter Ashley Lee, 30, were working.
Surveillance video shows the moment the hooded suspect walks into the store and immediately points a weapon at Lee who was behind the counter.
After a brief exchange, Lee backs away from the intruder with her arms raised as he rummages around in the cash register.
Ring then appears and Lee grabs a weapon from under the counter, handing it to her mother.
The video then shows the two women hiding behind the counter.
But as the suspect reappears, Ring fires the weapon a number of times, even as the suspect retreats from the store.
Quickly, the suspect reappears and begins to grabble with Ring as he tries to get the weapon out of her hands.
The scene descends into a shoot out, with all three brandishing weapons as the two brave women defend their store.
Ring told Tulsa World that her biggest concern was her daughter’s safety. She said: ‘I didn’t want him to hurt my daughter. That was my main thought.’
She added: ‘All I was thinking was ‘Just give him the money and go,’ and next thing I know, I see him back in my face.’
As Ring is grabbling with the intruder, Lee fires a shot at his back and the two women flee the store.
The intruder can be seen collapsing behind the counter with what appears to be blood on his hands.
The suspected robber was identified as Tyrone Lee by the Tulsa Police Department.
They said a man matching his description arrived at a local hospital with several gunshot wounds.
