Family Of Adric White ‘Outraged’ After Good Samaritan Shoots Armed Robbery Suspect

The family of Adric White, an armed robbery suspect who allegedly held up a Mobile, Alabama, Family Dollar store in November, is speaking out against their son’s shooter.

White was not killed in the attack. Rather he was shot five times, then transported to USA Medical Center, where he remained in police custody.

Adric was out on bond for robbing The Original Oyster House at gunpoint before the Family Dollar attempt.

According to the Good Samaritan who had a legal permit for concealed carry, he had a clerk on their knees and was pointing the gun at their head.

“He had the gun to his head. He had him on his knees,” said the Good Samaritan. “I drew my gun on him and I said ‘Hey don’t move.’ At that point he swung around and before he had a chance to aim the gun at me I fired. I didn’t want to shoot him.”

The man fired five times with each shot reportedly striking Adric White in undisclosed locations.

Just because it didn’t kill Adric and just because there was a reluctance to shoot, however, the suspect’s family is not satisfied with the decision.

“If [the customer’s] life was not in danger, if no one had a gun up to him, if no one pointed a gun at him — what gives him the right to think that it’s okay to just shoot someone?” said an anonymous relative in comments to FOX10. “You should have just left the store and went wherever you had to go in your car or whatever.”

The Good Samaritan had a different take.

“[Criminals] tend to think that they are the only ones with guns. I’ve been legally carrying my firearm for a little over four years now, and thank God I’ve never had to use it until, of course, last night. It just goes to show it’s good to have a concealed carry. You never know when you’re going to need it.”

The Good Samaritan will not be charged with breaking any laws in the intervention, but the conflict does bring up an interesting question.

Should concealed carry give good samaritans the right to insert themselves into situations that do not directly involve them?

If the man had pulled a gun on the Samaritan, there would be no question, but if the altercation was between him and someone else and there was no intent on the part of Adric White to shoot, does the family have a point? Share your thoughts in our comments section.
