"Dallas Store Manager Fends Off 5 Armed Robbers with .38 Revolver, Wounding One; Police Arrive 74 Minutes Later A Dallas store manager using his handgun to fend off an attempted robbery by five armed robbers. There's also audio of the 911 call from the Dallas store manager asking for police help because of the robbery. Reports indicate he asked for police to come because the armed men had tried to rob his store. The store manager shot at the men with a .38 Caliber revolver, sending the robbers scurrying away, and wounding one of them twice. But his call was misclassified because the operator did not understand he was saying in his frantic call that he had shot one of the robbers, and it took police an hour to arrive. In fact, it was so long, the manager went home and was called back by police when the did arrive. It takes a "good guy with a gun" to ward off five armed robbers."

I love how at the end the anchorman asks the field reporter if police had any problem with the store owners actions. She says it doesn't look like he will face any repercussions. REALLY??? Can you just report the story and not ask any stupid questions or make any stupid comments please? We would all really appreciate it.

At the end the reported should have asked why the **** it took police 74 minutes to respond to a shots fired incident. I realize the police are busy and I'm sure its only getting worse as they lose officers to budget cuts but when someone cracks off rounds at 5 guys I would think it takes priority over everything else, I can't imagine the entire police force was simultaneously out dealing with gun fights all across the city.
