Liquor Store owner shoots shoplifter by accident while pistol whipping him



The owner of a Ridgewood liquor store was arrested and charged for shooting an alleged shoplifter from Brooklyn on Monday evening.

Francisco Valerio, 53, was taken into custody and booked at the 104th Precinct in Ridgewood on a first-degree reckless endangerment charge after he accidentally shot a 20-year-old who was assaulting him during a chaotic struggle inside his Franja Wine and Liquors shop at 785 Wyckoff Ave., according to the NYPD.

Upon further investigation, Edwin Poaquiza and Kevin Pullutasi, 20, both from Brooklyn, entered the shop just before 7:45 p.m. and began to take bottles of liquor without paying. Valerio noticed the shoplifting in progress and chased both men out of his store. Both men returned a short while later and assaulted Valerio, who had a registered handgun. As the struggle escalated, Valerio allegedly fired a shot that struck Pullutasi in the abdomen. His accomplice Poaquiza ran from the store but was arrested moments later around the block at Ridgewood Place and Putnam Avenue.

EMS responded to the crime scene and rushed Pullutasi to Elmhurst Hospital where he was listed in stable condition and placed under arrest, police said

I hear 2 pieces of shit from Ecuador that have already earned felony records (and released) that don't belong in this country. These animals actually came back, entered the store looking for trouble.
The store owner had a right to defend himself, especially when the government refuses to do its job, protect this country and its people from harmful invasion. Its called castle doctrine.
Give the man a medal not handcuffs!!

Arrest mayor Adams for inviting all the worlds pieces of shit here.
How many Illegals did Adams coddle into Gracie mansion and his home in Brooklyn?
How many Illegals did the Pope invite to live in the 12,000 room Vatican, literally a whole city surrounded by walls and Swiss guardsmen 24-7 ?
Last find me one Catholic church or rectory that has illegals living in it?
I think another 911 is coming, a worse 911

Catholic Churches In NYC can't legally provide shelter for illegal (Or even Legal) homeless. Because of an executive order by Bill De Blasio, homelessness is big business in NYC. "Charities" like Samaritan house are awarded contracts by the city to cover kickbacks to city officials. Can't have the catholic church cutting in on that shit for free, can ya?

The good news is that the attacker is now cured of his alleged mental illness.
