My buddy received his permit a few months back as he just turned old enough. He works at a motel here in Columbus. Saturday a potential robber came in and my friend shot him 3 times. No charges have been filed against him as he refused to make a statement at that time before consulting a lawyer. The amazing part was the guy he shot was only 20 and had been arrested for armed robbery, aggravated armed robbery, and auto theft. He was a 3x felon on the street trying to commit a 4th. My buddy said that the cops were really relaxed to deal with in a highly tense situation. He did mention they took his G27 with no mention as to when hed get it back.

Yes the man pulled a revolver. My friend drew on him and ordered him to drop the gun. The guy started to lift his gun and thats when my buddy shot him. There was a co worker as well as a lady holding a baby inside the lobby when this occured.

Excellent. Sounds like he handled it perfectly. With witnesses he should have no problem. Definitely keep us posted on how it turns out for him.

Publius' employer also has no problem with the employees taking appropriate self-defense precautions

Anybody(LEO or DA's) know if he can carry until the investigation is over?
Can he carry another handgun until his is returned?
When will his be returned?
Are there laws on the books that protect him from repercussions if it is ruled a "good shoot?"
(Such as the "Good Samaritan Law" that protects those that render aid to the injured)

I'm not flaming him.(Good Job keeping a cool head!) I was just wondering if he was at work and, (God Forbid), was put in the situation where he had to use deadly force again before his handgun was returned; what the procedure was.

I am not a DA, just a LEO..
If he was indeed lawful in the carry, and has not been charged with any crime up to this point, I can think of no reason he cannot carry. If he has a valid Ohio permit, it does not specify what gun he must carry, so again without researching, he should be legal carrying another gun.
If he is cleared "justifiable use of lethal force" he can still be sued civilly by the family of the BG. No "Good Samaritan Law" that I know of. Unless this took place on the water? Interesting thought actually. Just as a LEO can be cleared and still sued in civil court, so can the person in this case.
This is off the top of my head and I have done no specific research in this area, so this should not be used a "law" just my opinion at this point.

i hope everything goes well for your friend.

Ditto on that...

Where did this occur? any news links? I would love to see the media's view on this and how they portray it.
Link Posted: 8/10/2005 1:17:15 PM EDT
if the police did not take his permit and no charges have been filed he shoudl be in the clear......

another one for the good guys....

Your buddy will get his piece back after they decide not to charge him with anything. At minimum, it will probably take a couple of weeks. If he hasnt done so already I would make sure he has a receipt for the gun, find out who the lead detective is, and who the property Sgt is. This will help expedite the return process. And good call on him not making a statement until he consulted an attorney. Hopefully there is a security camera that shows the dirtbag reaching for his gun 1st.

The Dispatch didn't really smear him. They didn't praise him either.
