There’s video at the site.
Great second amendment story. She didn’t fire a shot, either.:
Ernestine Aldana owns a grocery store near the corner of Muskego Avenue and Becher Street in Milwaukee. On Dec. 14, Aldana was working in the store when a man entered the store and pulled a knife on her.
“I was really scared,” she said.
But as the man reached for cash from the drawer, Aldana pulled a gun from underneath the counter.
“I didn’t think,” she said. “I didn’t remember what was being said. I just took a step back, grabbed the gun and that was that.”
As the gun came out, the man ran away.
“I probably shouldn’t say this, but I think I was going to shoot the gun,” she said. “But he was already running away. Once his back was turned, I couldn’t do it.”
Milwaukee police said Thursday that an arrest had been made in the case after they released the surveillance video.”
