A law abiding citizen in Anchorage, Alaska used a gun to end a violent robbery on Sunday.
Yan Bangout robbed a clothing store, and was confronted by mall security after leaving the store. However, Bangout didn’t quietly allow security to apprehend him, and instead pulled out a gun during a struggle with mall security.
