    Restaurant Robbery Foiled By Gun-Packing Customer

    POSTED: 10:04 am EDT August 18, 2006
    UPDATED: 3:42 pm EDT August 18, 2006

    INDIANAPOLIS -- An armed customer foiled a robbery at a fast-food restaurant on Indianapolis' west side Thursday afternoon, according to police.

    Police said William McMiller Jr., 40, ordered a bucket of chicken before demanding money from a cashier and threatening to shoot at the KFC in the 2800 block of West 16th Street.

    Police said the cashier didn't understand what McMiller wanted and thought he was asking for a refund.

    Investigators said McMiller repeated his demand two more times before the clerk reached for money.

    Investigators said that when McMiller began to climb over the counter, Paul Sherlock, a customer in the restaurant, approached from behind and pulled out a Taurus 9mm handgun.

    "I said, 'I can't let this happen. He might hurt her,'" Sherlock said. "Anybody can get hurt back here. So, I said, 'I got to do something,' and that's when it happened."

    Sherlock held McMiller until police arrived. McMiller has three prior armed robbery convictions. He was held in the Marion County Jail on Friday, facing a new robbery charge.

    Police later determined that McMiller did not have a gun, but did have a long screwdriver. Investigators said Sherlock has a valid gun permit.

    I wonder if Sherlock gets free KFC for life because of that? :D

    Thats definitely cool, I'm glad to see someone put their foot down and prevent a lowlife from hurting someone.

    There is more than one reason you want to keep a rooster in the hen house.
