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.
