Suspect brandishes gun at LP

Police in Gwinnett County, Georgia say a minor shoplifting incident took a dangerous and unexpected turn when the suspect pulled a gun on store loss prevention associates. Police body camera video showed his arrest just moments later. Police said Anthony Robinson stole a phone case from a Walmart in Duluth.

When officers responded to a report of shots along Pleasant Hill Road, they said they had no idea what they would encounter. “We didn’t know if he was going to use it on us or what not,” said officer Ted Sadowki. “It’s a dangerous situation, especially when you bring a gun into any type of situation.” Robinson is facing charges of shoplifting and reckless conduct. He’s currently out of jail on bond.   [Source: WSB-TV2 Atlanta]
