The manager of a Domino’s Pizza chain in Blytheville, Arkansas had a life-or-death decision to make when three hooded men came into her store.
The men demanded money from the chain’s counter staff. The manager, Sarah Cherry, came to the front of the store.
However, the robbers didn’t know that she was armed. One of them made the mistake of firing at her with a handgun.
According to the Courier News:
Armed, Cherry fired several shots back at the suspects as they fled the store, heading east, according to witnesses.
Police are actively investigating several people of interest, according to Criminal Investigation Division Capt. Scott Adams, who urged anyone with any information regarding the incident to come forward. A $1,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrests and conviction of the three suspects involved.
No injuries were reported with the incident, and Adams said Cherry acted bravely.
Adams said it’s not recommended to “fight with armed suspects.”
But he stressed that “we do strongly believe in personal protection of businesses and people whom are not convicted felons.”
“The store manager showed great courage in protecting herself and her employees,” Adams said.
