Roanoke store owner pulls a gun on a robber The owner, Wilford Williams, says he was trying to defend himself.
A store owner in Roanoke says his first reaction was self defense. He pulled a gun on a man trying to rob his store, Annwil Groceries, late Tuesday night.
Most customers don't know about the attempted robbery. After they heard about it on Thursday, many were supportive of the owner's decision to defend himself with a gun against an armed robber.
"I think he did the right thing cause sometimes you don't get a second chance," says customer Victoria Jean-Pierre.
