Differently abled store owner captures robbers, WATE, Knoxville, Tenn. October 23, 2013

The wheelchair bound owner of Malone’s Jewelers in Alcoa, Tenn. was working at his shop when a man entered and began to occupy his attention. Soon after, another man, who was in league with the first, entered the store and attempted a robbery. The owner responded to the threat by retrieving a gun, shooting one of the criminals in the abdomen, then holding the pair of thieves until police could arrive.
When interviewed by a local media outlet, Det. Kris Sanders of the Alcoa Police Department said of the owner, “He did a really good job detaining both individuals until we got there.” The owner has not been charged.
