Wisconsin's First Concealed Carry Self-Defense Case


A customer who shot a suspect during an armed robbery at a grocery store Monday night will discuss his actions with prosecutors Wednesday.

Milwaukee police weren't saying much Tuesday about the incident, which took place about 7 p.m. at the Aldi store at N. 76th St. and W. Villard Ave. They said two suspects were arrested, and one had been shot and suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

The customer who intervened was not arrested but was told to report to the district attorney on Wednesday, police spokeswoman Anne E. Schwartz said.

The unidentified gun user – being hailed as a hero by some online commentators and gun rights advocates – may wind up becoming the first lawful carrier of a concealed weapon to foil a violent crime, the exact kind of scenario supporters of Wisconsin's new concealed carry law said will deter criminals.

Nik Clark, president of Wisconsin Carry Inc., a gun rights advocacy organization, said he wasn't surprised by the incident.

“I don't advocate for violating a store's no-weapons policy, but I do advocate that people avoid stores posted ‘no weapons,' as criminals will target them over the ones that allow carry,” Clark said. Read more
