On the morning of April 4, 2011, a Security Guard stationed in the Apple Store at the Otay Ranch Towne Center mall in Chula Vista California, was forced to shoot one of three armed burglary suspects as they broke into the business. That afternoon, NBC 7/39 interviewed Practical Defense Systems Co-founder, regarding Security Officer training.
The security officer’s actions were determined to have been appropriate, given the circumstances surround the incident. One of the three burglary suspects died as a result of his wounds. Thankfully, the Security Officer was unhurt.
