Armed bystander stops attempted robbery at fast-food joint

Police in Georgia say a bystander stepped in and shot a would-be robber at a fast-food restaurant.

A 57-year-old man tried to rob the manager of a Zaxby’s in Alpharetta, but a man who had just pulled in to order some food also had a gun, police told FOX 5 Atlanta. 

“I’m glad somebody was there to help the people who could have been a victim,” customer Shameerah Bates told the TV station.

The attempted armed robbery happened at closing time Sunday night. Police said that as the manager was leaving, an armed man approached him in the parking lot and tried to rob him.

The manager was shaken up and went to the hospital with some superficial injuries, and he is expected to be OK.
