In all of my years in law enforcement, this is the most intense gunfight I’ve seen.
Tulsa, OK – Video captured the intense gunfight between a robber and a liquor store owner with her daughter (video below.)
The incident happened Thursday, just after 6 p.m., at the liquor store at near 12th and Memorial, according to KTUL.
Armed robber, Tyrone Lee, entered the liquor store with a shotgun and held the owner and her daughter at gunpoint. The robber then stepped away for a moment and the two ladies armed themselves.
When the robber returned, the owner opened fire on Lee and he fled. Lee initially appeared to be gone, and the owner’s daughter called 911.
Then, out of nowhere, Lee smashed his way back through the door and the owner opened fire again.
There was a brief exchange between the two, then rather than leave, the robber attacked and went for the owner’s gun.
Lee got the gun away from the owner and the owner’s daughter pointed her pistol at Lee just as the man pointed his newly-acquired revolver back at her.
The owner’s daughter fired, and appeared to hit the robber. Lee then chased her and appeared to be trying to shoot her.
The gun was possibly out of bullets and didn’t fire.
The robber then collapsed in a bloody heap as the two ladies fled the store.
The owner suffered a gash to her head, which required staples, according to KTUL.
Tyrone Lee has been hospitalized in critical condition.
The two ladies declined media interviews but the owner’s son told KTUL, that the guns saved their lives.
“We’re not going to be victims,” he told KTUL.
