Armed robber overtaken by 7-11 customers

By Taxpayers Association of Oregon

Many Oregonians have had enough.

An armed robber entered a 7-11 store in Portland and was besieged by angry customers.

The gun, it turns out, was stolen.  This only verifies that many of numerous Oregon’s gun laws will not effect many criminals.

Police Report, “Two customers and a convenience store clerk collaborated to capture an armed robber in the Sumner Neighborhood. On Sunday, July 2, 2023, at 12:53 a.m., North Precinct Officers responded to an armed robbery of a convenience store located in the 8200 Block of Northeast Sandy Boulevard. The initial call said that the clerk and customers were fighting with the suspect inside the store and a shot had been fired. Officers arrived and entered the store to find the suspect bleeding from the face and two customers also injured from a physical confrontation. The firearm had already been secured by the clerk. An initial investigation at the scene found that the suspect entered the store, presented the firearm, and made statements regarding his intent to rob the store and the customers. The customers then turned on the suspect and fought for the firearm, pinning the suspect to the ground. During the fight, one round from the revolver was discharged, but no one was struck…The suspect, Daniel Israel Jones, 40, of Portland, was transported to a local hospital for injuries sustained in the struggle…The gun Jones was using (photo) was reported stolen out of Washington in 1996. “
