National Guardsman Store Clerk Scares Off Burglars With Assault Weapon
But on Sunday in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, two masked men who appeared in Shawn Schank's convenience store in Shingleton, Mich., reportedly got quite a surprise. Schank, a National Guardsman who spent a year in Afghanistan, emerged from a back room of the store carrying a loaded AR-15 assault weapon and pointed it directly at the would-be robbers, causing them to flee, according to local TV station WLUC.
On Tuesday, the suspects, Ruben Sifuentes, 18, and a 17-year-old male were charged with breaking and entering. And Schank told WLUC that he was confident that he'd handled the situation well. "I don't care if people try to rob. I will respond the same way," he said.
