Omaha, NE – The Walgreens customer who killed a would-be-robber Monday night has been cited for carrying a concealed weapon but won’t face a charge in the shooting.
Harry J. McCullough III, 32, had a permit to carry a loaded handgun in plain view — typically in a holster — but did not have a concealed weapons permit, said Omaha Police Officer Jacob Bettin.
McCullough pulled his handgun from the waistband of his pants when he shot and killed Marquail Thomas, a shotgun-wielding 18-year-old and would-be-robber at the Walgreens in Benson Monday night, Bettin said.

Very disappointing that McCullough isn’t being hailed as a hero. He risked his own life, and put a stop to the armed robbers who may very well have killed innocent people. I love how the title of the article in the story I linked is “No Charge In Shooting”… like that is the big issue here… not that one robber is dead, one in jail, and everyone in the store got to go home unharmed. I don’t know what the charge for carrying a concealed weapon in Nebraska without a permit is, but it damn well better not be more than a misdemeanor in this context.
Stories like this one are my absolute favorite.
