Gun store robbed for second time in same year

Thieves smashed a car into a gun shop early Monday morning.

FORT MILL, S.C. -- Fort Mill Police are looking for three people who broke into a gun shop, stealing multiple firearms.

Around 5 a.m., the suspects drove a vehicle into the building and grabbed several handguns before taking off in a different car.

“I pulled up and saw the actual store had a car in it and I thought, 'Wow, someone must have broken in and gotten all the guns.' And sure enough, that’s what happened,” said Galen Beaty, who works next door to the Aim Right gun shop. “No telling how many guns they got-- it’s a gun store so they could have a lot of guns out here.”

And this is not the first time something like this has happened. Back in January, the same exact gun store was broken into; the thieves stole 14 firearms.

So far, police don’t know how many guns were stolen or who is responsible.

Beaty says the thought of unregistered guns in the hands of criminals is frightening.

“There’s a lot of guns out on the street right now,” he said. “They’re going to get them any way they can. I’ve got to protect my family.”

The employees of Aim Right refused comment until police release more information.
