Two Rappley siblings are furious that their armed robber brother was shot dead by a Dollar General clerk when he tried to rob the clerk while pointing a gun at him.
The 23-year-old Roosevelt Rappley brandished the gun, pointed it at the employees, and demanded cash on Wednesday. Witnesses confirmed the events.
One sibling said, “…it was wrong for that clerk to shoot my brother… yes he’s robbing, ‘Oh well,’…”
His siblings said the clerk shouldn’t have had a gun. Apparently, they thought it was a gun-free zone.
Equity… Family members of the armed robber killed by a store clerk are angry the clerk was armed. Their brother counted on the store’s policy as a ‘gun-free’ zone to ensure his safety. h/t @RealJamesWoods pic.twitter.com/qHEfXMV5Yr
