Hero security guard saves colleagues’ lives as he shoots ‘drugged-up’ robber in terrifying bank raid

A security guard is being hailed a hero for saving his colleagues’ lives after shooting1 a ‘drugged-up’ bank robber.

Brian Harrison will not face criminal charges after firing two shots and fatally injuring the masked man.

The incident occurred on January 20 at the Alpine Bank2 in Rockford, Illinois.

Police say 34-year-old Laurence Turner, from Rockford, tried to rob the bank3 on Friday afternoon. He is said to have fired a shot at the ceiling.

Brian Harrison fired two shots at Laurence Turner

In the clip, Turner can be seen shooting into the air and it is at this point that Harrison and Turner exchange gunfire. After guns are fired, Turner turns and tries to flee from the bank, but collapses from his rooms in the doorway.

According to WIFR News4 , Turner was on drugs at the time of the shooting and was later pronounced dead at the scene.

No employees were injured during the incident and no customers inside the bank were hurt.

Authorities believe Turner may have been involved in similar robberies in the Rockford area of the past few months.

Winnebago County State’s Attorney Joe Bruscato said: “There is no doubt in my mind that the actions of Brian Harrison saved the lives of those that were employees in the Alpine Bank location on that date and saved his own life.”

Blind woman ‘died inside’ when security guard told her to leave ASDA with …

A blind woman says she died inside when she and her guide dog were told to leave an Asda store as shocked shoppers looked on.

Louise Cannon, accompanied by her harnessed German Shepherd, Harmony, was planning on doing her regular shop with her 12-year-old niece at her local Asda in Liverpool on Friday afternoon.

She says that when she entered the store, a security guard repeatedly told her go outside because no dogs were allowed.

The embarrassed 34-year-old charity worker says she told the man her dog was a guide dog but the employee still told her to leave the store.

Last night, the American-owned supermarket retailer said it was genuinely sorry about the unacceptable incident.

Louise, who says she is registered blind, told the Liverpool Echo1 : My niece Abbie said, Aunty Lou, that man s talking to you .

I asked him what he d said and he told me, no dogs allowed, go outside .

I told him, she s a guide dog but he said it again, no dogs allowed, go outside .

I told him that it was against the law to stop me coming in with Harmony but he continued to tell me to leave.

By this point, Louise says she was dying inside with embarrassment as more and more attention was being drawn to her as people looked on.

Angry customers swore and shouted at the security guard.

A female shopper told him, she s got every right to shop in here , said Louise.

A defiant Louise asked the guard to go and get his manager.

Green-haired Louise, who says she doesn t look blind , says Harmony was wearing her working harness.

Eventually, the man complied and the store manager apologised to Louise who, after the mortifying ordeal, got on with her usual shop.

She said: It was so embarrassing, I was mortified.

When I went to the tills everyone was talking about it I felt like dying inside.

Holding back tears, Louise said: Usually I m so confident and I deal with lots of situations but this has really thrown me.

I won t go in there again because I won t be able to see if it s the same security guard who made me feel so vulnerable.

That s a massive part of my independence gone and I ve worked so hard for that.

Security guards are supposed to protect you not intimidate you.

To get home, an upset and shaken Louise had to cross a busy Prescot Road while responsible for Harmony who she has had since July, and her young relative.

A spokesperson for Asda said: We are genuinely sorry for how the security guard on duty in our store treated this customer, it was not acceptable.

The colleague isn t originally from the UK and wasn t familiar with guide dogs being allowed inside shops.

He has now been retrained.

Bradbury Fields a Liverpool charity for blind and partially sighted people says more needs to be done to better inform retail and restaurant workers about the legal rights of guide dogs and their owners under the UK Equality Act.

Cheshire Police backs campaign to stop stalkers in their tracks …

Victims of stalking are urged to come forward and report the issue to police.

First published

STAND up together and say no.

This is the message from police chiefs at Cheshire Constabulary as part of National Stalking Awareness Week.

Detective superintendent Nigel Wenham from Cheshire Police Public Protection Unit said this type of behaviour will not be tolerated.

He said: “Everyone has the right to go about their daily business unmolested and free from fear.

“Nobody has the right to take that away, to cause someone to live in constant fear is a crime for which there can be no justification, no excuse and no tolerance.”

This week officers were about and out raising awareness of the effects of stalking on younger people.

The British Journal of Psychiatry found that juvenile stalkers rarely acted because of an infatuation with the victim.

Rather the stalking was a form of bullying or a reaction to a perceived injustice which might include sexual rejection.

DS Wenham added: “Young victims of stalking can be particularly vulnerable and may find it harder to talk to someone about their ordeal.

“It is important that parents and friends listen when someone younger speaks to them about stalking as they will likely be the first port of call for help and support.

“If you are concerned that your child or a friend is a victim of stalking it is important to bring it to the attention of the police to ensure that everything can be done to stop this damaging behaviour from continuing.”

Victims of stalking are urged to come forward and report the issue to police.
