Jewelry Salesman Shoots Alleged Robbers

A travelling jewelry salesman recently opened fire on four alleged would-be robbers in a Memphis parking lot, sending two of them to the hospital, according to a report from local station WREG.


The robbers were said to be planning to attack the salesman. However, the salesman pulled a gun and fired. Two of the robbers are now in critical condition, the reports say. Two others escaped unharmed.


Police say the salesman had a gun permit from Alabama, which carries over to Tennessee.
