3 Thugs Picked The Wrong Smoke Shop To Rob In “Lost” Angeles (Video)

Video from a surveillance camera shows the security guard standing behind the counter when four men enter the store. One pulls a gun from his waistband and points it at the guard’s face.

The guard starts to pull a handgun from a holster and the robber fires. The guard ducks and falls to the floor behind the counter as glass shatters while the robber backs up and trips over one of his accomplices. A second suspect also fires at the guard, video shows.

All four men then scramble to the front of the store and cower behind shelves, with at least three shooting at the guard before they manage to escape.

Video below:

The guard, who wore a protective vest, was treated at a hospital for gunshot wounds to his face and neck and was released, the Sheriff’s Department said.

A short time later, Justin Culberson, 18, turned up at a hospital with a gunshot wound to his abdomen and died later that night.

Kamren Nettles, 18, was arrested the next day and has pleaded not guilty to attempted murder and to murder for the death of Culberson during the holdup.

Authorities said they’re still searching for suspects identified as Kahlel Malik Lundy, 23, and Keith Terrion Rachel, 21.

The security guard issued a statement where he confirms that he proudly supports the second amendment and he encourages others to buy a legal gun for situations like this!
