    7 illegal aliens (with prior deportations) went into mall jewelry store for armed robbery. 1 carrying a handgun. Breaking glass was reported as active shooter. A few seconds later an off duty cop interrupted it. That cop was backed up by an armed citizen.

    Fox news showed 12-15 second video this morning about 0955 and reported it as armed citizen. Guy comes in store a few seconds after cop enters, passing and ignoring the only armed crook. Citizen comes in and covers him, minimizing risk to both.

    My google fu skills are not very good. I cannot find a report with video that shows cop and armed citizen. The lower link below is reportedly a copy of the video that is on FB. I don't do FB so I cannot watch it. Shows just how thin google fu can be.

    Note how quickly the "security guard" is taken off guard. The second cop runs right past the scene, turns around and walks in right past the armed crook - who's wearing a mask! #-o

    There's a 3-person family at the entrance - who eventually manage to sneak out under the watchful eye of the armed bad guy. Notice the father has something on his right hip. Probably a cell phone. It's totally ignored by all the bad guys. What if it had been a gun? I'd posit that all the crooks would have totally ignored it also because they all have their mind - and their eyes - on the prize.

    The armed man possibly saved the cops life
