Man wrestles armed felon to ground during Spokane robbery (VIDEO)



SPOKANE, Wash. -- A bystander stepped in and tackled an armed robber late Monday at a North Spokane convenience store. It happened around 7 p.m. at G & B Grocery near Crestline and Francis. A surveillance camera shows the robber, 25-year-old James Hopkins, wearing a ski mask and all black, entering the store. Spokane Police Officers said Hopkins, armed with a handgun, demanded the clerk empty the cash register.

 As the clerk put the money on the counter, Hopkins pointed the handgun at six people inside the store including three children; two 12-year-olds and a 13-year-old. He then fired off a round into the ceiling then attempted to run from the scene. One of the customers, who happened to be the clerk’s brother, raced after Hopkins and tackled him to the ground. Hopkins dropped the gun on the floor and the two struggled on the way out of the door. The brother managed to hold onto Hopkins until officers arrived on scene just a few moments later.

Officers arrested Hopkins for 1st Degree Robbery and 6 counts of 1st Degree Assault. They determined the gun inside the store was a stolen firearm. It had been reported stolen in 2002 from Bellingham, Washington. Hopkins is also a convicted felon, thus it is illegal for him to possess a firearm. He was also booked into jail for Unlawful Possession of a Firearm and Possession of a Stolen Firearm in addition to the previous charges.

Oh my! He was not supposed to have a firearm and did anyway! But I thought that laws prohibiting gun ownership would make things all better.
