Dairy Queen Clerk Shoots, Kills Sword-Wielding Robber

August 21, 2012  | 

Video surveillance footage has confirmed the account of the clerk of a Las Vegas Dairy Queen, who fatally shot a robbery suspect who threatened him with a samurai-type sword.

Christian Wehbe Jr. confronted Bong Kuk Pak with a handgun during the Sunday incident and shot him twice in self-defense. Pak had entered the store at 2595 S. Maryland Parkway shortly after noon wearing black gloves, a white shirt and gray knit cap that covered his face, reports the Las Vegas Sun.

After Pak swung the sword several times at the cash register, Wehbe shot Pak twice.

Never bring a sword to a gunfight! Just ask Indiana Jones.

This is why it's a good idea for all clerks to carry guns. If he wouldn't of had a firearm this could of been a very awful scene. I don't think Pak will be throwing any touchdowns in hell. Thank you Christian for putting this animal to rest forever in burning hell.

It shows that not all criminals first choice of weapons are guns. I agree with Jeff. I think all fast food and convenient stores should allow their clerks the right to be armed if they can pass the background checks and are willing get their CCW permit. They are prime targets by the bad guys.

"Ya' want fries with that?"

Yep, all the classic, "he was a good boy", and played football and worked for the state until he was fired for being a druggie! But a good boy!

Hey have my vote,why not they are the primary target to these SKELS! It will also make the sludge element hesitate before robbing a restaurant/fast food/convenience-grocery stores and placing our families in peril during our quiet moment of shopping.

As an officer. It sounds like he acted justifiably. Don't do the crime if you can't stand the consequences.

A few years ago, near Culver City, CA, two gentlemen decided on an easy victim: the skinny little proprietor of a mom-and-pop video store. Even an easier victim because he was holding his 1 year old boy in his arms. The two gentlemen entered the store, with one of them displaying a pistol and the other indicating one in his pocket. The two gentlemen did not realize that the target proprietor had been a pistol champion back in Cambodia and still competed occasionally at local ranges. When the two gentlemen vaulted the counter, the "victim" cleared leather and did what was needed. When police arrived, one perp was dead, the other lingered in hospital for a week. For which the police good heartedly rebuked the proprietor for missing the 10-ring on the second perp. The "victim" did all this one-handed, without dropping the baby.

Unfortunately, the clerk will probably lose his job for breaking a company policy. Even if he has a concealed pistol license, training and is found totally justified in the shooting. Corporate America would rather have a dead or disabled clerk than risk the remote chance of a civil lawsuit by the deadman's family.

If DQ does fire this brave young man then I'll have to cross DQ off my list of favorites. And I'll make damn sure all the Blues I know will be made aware of that. Good job Mr.Wehbe, that took courge.

Thank you Christian Wehbe Jr.

Good Guys 1; POS 0!

Let's see:

I can safely eat at Chick-Fil-A for lunch, DQ for desert, what about breakfast and dinner?

Jason, Jason, Jason.I know I'm a dinosaur, but when I went through the academy in 1973, we were taught to call these piles of shit what they really are. I hear the same thing in Missouri, calling these scumbags ladies and gentlemen. They don't qualify for that title and do these things. Please refer to them properly.
