Two gang members tried to murder a pharmacist and his mother on Thursday but the pharmacist shot one of the men in the face, leg and chest. The gang member died a block from the pharmacy. The gang member, 31 year-old Aquilla Bailey, had several previous convictions including vandalism, auto theft and possessing stolen property. The second suspect was later arrested by police.

The pharmacist and his mother survived the attack after he grabbed his gun and started shooting.
ABC Local reported:

Pharmacy owner Bryan Lee said he left the back door of his store unlocked for a customer stopping by after business hours. Shortly after the customer left, Lee said two men in ski-masks barged in through the back door and started shooting.

The mother and son said they ducked behind the counter as bullets kept flying. One of them hit the mother in the leg. “It was not a robbery so much as an execution,” Lee said. “It was an attempted assassination, they didn’t make any demands, they simply came in, reached over, and it was basically shooting us almost in the back of the head. They shot my mother and almost shot me, I was just surrounded by holes.”

Lee grabbed a gun and started shooting at one of the two suspects.

Police Chief Steve Frazier said he had information that the suspect was shot in the face, in the torso, and then once in the leg.

Frazier said the suspect, 31-year-old Aquilla Bailey, fell to the floor, and then managed to run out of the store and down the block before collapsing. Bailey later died at the hospital.Officers spent the day searching for the second suspect and piecing together a possible motive.

“The information we’ve developed is that the pharmacy was targeted probably specifically for the drugs on hand there, we don’t have any information that the owner was specifically targeted at this point,” Frazier said.

This wasn’t the first time the pharmacy near highway 99 has been hit. Lee said he was able to stop two other attempted robberies in the 15 years he’s owned the business, but this was the first time he felt he and his mother might die.

“I thought yesterday was the last day for both us, and luckily it didn’t turn out that way,” Lee said.

  1. The gang member, 31 year-old Aquilla Bailey, had several previous convictions including vandalism, auto theft and possessing stolen property.

    ~~~~~~~~~~

    Revolving Door.

  2. * SIGH * …. another obama supporter who had a bad crime day

  3. Aquilla Bailey?

    We’re talking schwartze here, no?

    Otherwise known as a typical POS?

  4. Someone should tell Ed “I see nothing, I hear nothing” Schultz. Wait……Is a pharmacist a civilian?

  5. Too bad he didn’t shoot him in the testicles.

  6. “Bailey later died at the hospital.”

    His father was there at his bedside, in tears, saying, “I shoulda been there for him.”

  7. They go to jail for attempted robbery with deadly weapon. Now, think if someone at Sandy Hook just had a gun.

    But in my opinion these gang bangers or any criminal with a wrap sheet has more problems then just criminal. There is a home life, school life and life outside of home and school. When youth get arrested on the second offense there needs to be more done then just a slap on the wrist.

    And moreover many pharmacies are opened 24/7 and they have a big red target for criminals.

    Some may have emergency buttons to call local police and some of these drugs stores don’t allow employees to have guns. But my suggestion is get them conceal them if you must work on your own at anytime of the day. Because criminals don’t care they have the upper hand with their guns so make things even. And who is dead, now, the criminal. Proud day to see that pharmacist had a gun.

    Night shift workers have a dangerous job and all should have guns. IMO

  8. I love a story with a happy ending.

  9. Bailey later died at the hospital.

    Somebody give Mr Lee a medal. His actions have resulted in one less career criminal to have to deal with later on.

    And less money for taxpayers to pay for their jail time.

  11. ” I was just surrounded by holes.”

    Gang bangers obviously don’t spend much time at the range…

    Another picture of this scum bag.

    Police have not yet identified the second suspect. They believe the pharmacy was targeted specifically for the drugs on hand.

    Bailey was wanted in connection to a home invasion in August of last year in which three men broke into a home in Fresno, tied up the 82-year-old woman inside and fled with her property. The other two men involved in that crime were identified as 22-year-old Atari Moffett of the Playboys gang and 26-year-old Derick White, a Dogpound gang associate.

    Anyone with information about Tuesday’s crime is asked to call the police at (559) 675-4200 or Crime Stoppers at (559) 498-STOP.

    Read More: Bailey has an extensive criminal history, including convictions for child abuse, for which he was sentenced to 180 days in jail and three years probation and also for receiving stolen property.

  13. Motive why do they target Pharmacy is there are ingredient for Gangsters to make drugs and most of the money found there after patients get their prescription for needed medication. It’s not a surprise they target those with 24 Hours sign.

  14. I am telling you the left HATES it when this happens…..When a robber gets shot to death…..but they dare not speak it and expose themselves to unpopularity. …

    ” So a criminal breaks into your house to grab some property.. that gives you the right to shoot him ? ” the bleeding heart fascist will say to himself. …How barbaric….let the poor pathetic criminal take what he wants…he’s poor victim of our evil racist capitalist society….what’s he supposed to do…starve ? You hard hearted meanies want to just lock people up and throw away the key ?

    …So the cowardly fascist WAITS until just the right crime comes along to POUNCE on top of the warm coffins and make his pitch for confiscating your liberty and freedoms. …

    and how DARE you refuse to surrender…why you cruel barbarians DISRESPECTING the slaughter of innocent children !!!!!

  15. Bailey has an extensive criminal history, including convictions for child abuse, for which he was sentenced to 180 days in jail and three years probation and also for receiving stolen property.

    ~~~~~~~~~~

    Revolving door and in place of addressing a sick and mentally incompetent’s real problems, cops continue to arrest the sick criminal and liberal judges continue to release them and in some instances the victims aren’t so lucky. VICIOUS CIRCLE BUT THIS IS ONE STORY IN MANY WHERE THE VICTIMS GOT TO GO HOME. Now, I wondered if all those like Bloomberg, Biden and Obama who seem to think they are Gun masters, Doctors or Nutritionists. They seem to believe they have some degree on what is best for the masses.

    Here is my problem when those like Obama, Biden and Bloomberg are the Judge and Jury for all Americans.
    [jack of all trades, master of none]

  16. not worthy news for abc cbs nbc

  17. If Obama had a son he’d look just like Aquila Bailey.

    This is another reason they want to ban guns, Holders people are meeting too much resistance.

  18. Fifteen years to 25, for the pharmacist…
