Details Finally Released On ‘Oh Well, Mine’s Real’ Shooting Of Robbers

Details have been released about the viral video which showed a security guard shooting two robbers.

Compton, CA – Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department has finally released details on the 7-11 shooting where a security guard shot two robbers.

The video was posted with the description “Hamilton NJ 7-11 near Ham West HS,” but 7-11 says that it actually happened in Compton.

The video shows two men enter the store and pull a gun on the clerk. The robbers then jumped over the counter to collect the cash.

Then a security guard casually strolls in and shoots the robbers.

“It’s fake! It’s fake,” one of the robbers shouted.

The security guard responded, “Oh well, mine’s real. Get up, put your hands behind your back.”

One of the robbers then asked, “Am I shot?”

“Oh f**k yeah,” the security guard responded.

The origins of the video weren’t clear, but LA County Sheriff’s Department released the following statement:

Deputies from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Compton Station responded to the 15200 block of South Avalon Boulevard, Gardena, regarding a silent robbery alarm activation that occurred on Saturday, December 30, 2017, at 11:35 p.m.

While at the location, Deputies learned the convenience store hired an armed security guard for the location. As the security guard was sitting in his vehicle, he saw two Black males wearing hooded sweatshirts enter the convenience store. The Security guard saw the hooded portion was tightened in what appeared to be an attempt to conceal the identities of the men who entered.

As the security guard approached the entrance to the store, he saw both men had jumped over the front counter and began to rummage through the cashier’s pockets. When the security guard walked in, he saw one of the males pointing what appeared to be a black semi-automatic handgun at the cashier.

Fearing for the cashier’s life, the security guard took action by shooting the male that was pointing the gun at the cashier. Believing the other male also had a weapon, he also fired at him, as a result striking both.

The security guard detained both males until deputies arrived. Both were transported to a local hospital and treated for their non-life threatening injuries.

During the investigation, a replica semi-automatic handgun was recovered at the scene. Both males were discovered to be juveniles approximately 16 years-old. They were both booked and charged with robbery and are being held without bail.

Detectives are aware of a surveillance video of the robbery that has been circling throughout social media.

This is an ongoing investigation and no other information is available at this time.

The security guard has still not been identified.
