“He’s My Hero”: Armed Father Stops Shooting at Alabama McDonald’s

“He’s my hero. Because I can only imagine how it would’ve went if he wasn’t armed. We might not be here having this interview,” Markus Washington told 6WBRC.

Washington was working at a Birmingham McDonald’s when he heard gunfire.

“I was making two quarter-pounders and heard three shots ring, and then exchange of gunfire two more,” he said.

The incident occurred at the McDonald’s on Lomb Avenue around 10:45 Saturday night – just as the restaurant was closing.

When an employee unlocked the door to let customers – a father and his two sons  – out, a masked man barged in and began shooting.

The father shot back.

Washington said he hid in the freezer, and from there, heard more than 15 shots fired.

Police said both the father and the masked man were shot, along with one of the hero’s sons. The gunman later died from his injuries. The father and his son are expected to recover.

Investigators are not clear whether the perp was robbing the store or targeting someone in the business, police told WVTM.

Washington and his coworkers are thankful the armed father was there at that moment.

“I’m feeling grateful,” Washington said. “Wrapping my head around it all, I was just wishing someone would come wake me up from this nightmare.”

“It’s truly sad, but it’s something as a community we can overcome,’‘ Birmingham police spokesman Sgt. Bryan Shelton said, according to AL.com. “We just have to work together to find a solution to our issues without resorting to violence. Right now it appears the victim made a decision that cost his life and the father made a decision that preserved his and children’s’ life.”

Police don’t expect the father to face charges.

    So the perp is dead? GOOD. One less black male animal to worry about. Glad to hear the father and son are recovering from their wounds and the father won’t face any charges for a legitimate act of self-defense.

    • The race of the gunman has not been revealed, nor has the race of the hero. What if the hero is black too?

      • The Deplorable Renegade says:

        Mac, I only know for sure what those statistics in the USDOJ study say every year and what I see on the streets of my city. I still praise the hero regardless of his color.

        • The Deplorable Renegade says:

          Mac, BTW, I do work in a company that has 80% black people in its workforce and a lot of them are GOOD black people. I do care about GOOD black people. It’s the OTHER kind I don’t have any use for and who are part of the problem in society.

          • Panther says:

            “Police don’t expect father to face charges”. Why the hell would he? I know in certain places in this country, there’s an element that would support the father to be prosecuted but that man should be given a medal. I’m quite certain he saved some lives that night.

            • Norrak says:

              We are so on the same page.

            • Big Tex says:

              Panther – be advised: In many, many states – we have a growing problem of cities who arrest everyone who is involved in a shooting – and yes that means those Americans who are trying to protect their families. Here in Texas, several big city mayors could care less about your “rights” to protect your home. If you kill an intruder, because you feel your life or that of your family is in danger, prepare to spend the next year involved in courts with harassment from the city, the intruders family, the news media and any one else with an anti-gun agenda. Yes – the Texas Legislature has passed laws giving people the right to protect their home and family – but the liberal politicians could care less. Kill someone legally in Texas – and your first phone call better be a damn good attorney. God bless the police in Alabama; they are the exception to the rules of a growing number of cities and states.

          • Frank says:

            DEPLORABLE renagade,

            You already stuck your deplorable foot in your racist mouth, now just shut up already.

      • Infidel says:

        Mac get real. If they didn’t reveal the perp’s race it’s because he’s non-white. Chances are DR is right.

    • Deplorable Neal Jensen says:

      When the perp is a WHITE male, the MEDIA SPLASHES THE RACE ALL OVER THE PLACE…. When it goes against their multicultural agenda, they bury the perps race. Look at the recent shootings, the media flat out LIED about the perps and perpetuated the lie EXACTLY as I mentioned. Never has such a anti WHITE racist program been in effect, except in South Africa…and look at how bad it is playing out for white folks in SA.

      That same systemic and rampant racism is currently building in the US media. Be ready and vigilant fellow Americans.

  2. Rationale says:

    Stop calling the masked man a “victim”. He’s not a “victim”, he’s the perp. The father, sons, and employees are the victims.

  3. The Deplorable Renegade says:

    If I’d been the father I would’ve done the same thing.

  4. Arby5 says:

    Whats that saying about… The Police are minutes away when SECONDS count! ?

    We just HAVE to be ready to defend ourselves and our loved ones. Depending on someone else to do it for you can get you KILLED.

    • The Deplorable Renegade says:

      Arby5, you nailed it. Law enforcement serves the GOVERNMENT, NOT THE PEOPLE according to our beloved [SARCASM INTENDED] federal and state supreme courts. When we, as individuals, get into situations like that, WE ARE ON OUR OWN. WE HAVE TO FEND FOR OURSELVES, WE HAVE TO BECOME OUR OWN FIRST RESPONDERS. LE is totally bogus with their anti-public mentality and don’t care about the public or even crime. If/when I ever get into such a situation I will only be concerned with getting out of the situation alive. I’ll do whatever I consider necessary and won’t care about any “legal issues”.

  5. The Deplorable Renegade says:

    Rationale, agreed. Perp is always the exact opposite of a victim. I’m just glad the victims survived.

  6. Sgt. Dale says:

    You can bet this won’t make MSM.
    Sgt.

  7. The Deplorable Renegade says:

    Sarge, the story has 3 links for local MSM sources in Birmingham. You must mean NATIONAL MSM. If so I agree.

  8. The Deplorable Renegade says:

    The incident is still under investigation so apparently neither the name of the perp nor the name of the father or his sons will be released just yet.

  9. The Deplorable Renegade says:

    I just checked all 3 sites for updates and no updates at this time.

  10. Jim in Va. says:

    Good shot dad!

  11. The Deplorable Renegade says:

    Jim, the Dad simply did what he has a right and an obligation to do. He got forced into that action. I’m sure he’s going through a tough time mentally over the whole affair but he can rest easy knowing that his action saved his life and those of his sons. And he’s not facing any charges which is even better.

  12. Fred Mitchell says:

    Heck yeah! Good for him. Here’s to a speedy recovery.

    We are living in the Wild Wild West again.
    Most of the women I know are armed and
    not willing to “Hope” the police will come
    in time to save them if they need help.

    I have to chuckle sometimes when I see
    some of these gray haired “Annie Oakley’s”
    out on the target range shooting everything
    from purse size Kerber (?) purse size pocket
    guns to the bigger Lugers.

    There are so many crazies out there that nobody
    male or female is safe any more.
    When they want drugs, money, sex, and precious
    metals….. they do stupid things.

    When I was in CA (downtown LA,) I needed some things
    at the store so decided to walk the three blocks.
    Returning 2 hours later, sevveral people were waiting for me
    panicked out of their minds. “Good gawd girl, don’t you
    know out here they will kill you for a dollar ?? or if they THINK
    you might have one..!!!!”

    I could not tell them about my close encounters with the crazies
    …it was a scary lesson…..nothing like the safety back in my hometown.

    Drugs and illegals have completely changed our cities into dumping
    grounds of humanity. We need to treat them like China does.

    News will drop this incident and put it in file 13.

    When asked the purpose of the Second Amendment give them the quote from Thomas Jefferson.

    Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.
    Thomas Jefferson

    THEREFORE

    No freeman shall be debarred the use of arms.
    Thomas Jefferson

    Would you like french fries with that LEAD sir?

  18. Jim on Jerz says:

    I’ll hold off on commenting until someone provides some information.

    Hero is a little bit strong if it turns out to be gang activity. Then ‘hero’ becomes ‘survivor’ then becomes “perp”.

    Amazing the lack of info here.

  19. The Deplorable Renegade says:

    Adam, thanks for that update. It confirms my suspicion about the perp being a black male. He bit off more than he could chew.

  20. Big Tex says:
