Kenly, N.C. — Johnston County deputies on Monday identified a man who was shot and killed while trying to rob a local restaurant on Friday.

Javier Francisco Bautista, 20, died in a shootout with the owner of Shoeheel Grill, Grocery and Gas, at 8212 Old Beulah Road in Kenly, according to the Johnston County Sheriff’s Office.

Bautista lived in a barn behind 602 White St. in Selma.

The robbery happened shortly before 6 p.m. on Friday, Johnston County Sheriff Steve Bizzell said.

The store owner, 59-year-old Donnie Creech, his son and two female employees were the only people in the store when Bautista walked in and displayed a weapon, Bizzell said.

Bautista pointed the gun at Creech's son, and Creech came from a back room with a weapon. In an exchange of gunfire, Bautista was hit and ran outside to a van, where he died.

Creech then grabbed a second weapon, went outside and was confronted by a second armed man, 17-year-old Felipe Alejandro Ortiz. They exchanged gunfire until Ortiz ran into a wooded area.

Ortiz, of 307 W. Jones St. in Selma, fled on foot and was later arrested and charged with attempted murder and attempted robbery with a dangerous weapon. He was denied bond.

Creech, his son and the employees were not injured. Bizzell said they would have likely died if Creech was not armed.

"If you're put in a life-and-death situation, I'm pretty sure anyone would've responded," Creech's older son, Donnie, said. "You've got to take care of yourself, take care of your family."

More than likely if our government was taking care of the border those 2 wouldn't even be here.

Always nice to see people get what they deserve.

If you hear about this on the news I'd really surprised.
If they did broadcast anything it would most likely be B.S. like the owner of the store didn't have a permit or that he is being charged with something in conjunction with the attempted robbery etc.


I'm glad he was able to protect his family.
I'm glad he shot the worthless POS.
To bad for the bandit that he died. It was by his own choice.
Too bad the store owner didn't bag his limit.

Next,

If this would have been in California the business owner would be in jail and the the relatives of the dead perp would now have lawyers banging on their door to sue for excessive use of force. Hooray for NC upholding the common sense rule - get them before they get you!

In case you did'nt know, North Carolina is one of the few states that permits "open carry" of hand guns. According to this mornings paper the same might come to be in Florida, I hope so even though I have a concealed weapon permit. If they know you are armed they will avoid you. Woody

With more and more citizens carrying now a days, these punks should be more careful. just sayin... ; )


A carjacker here in Detroit met his maker the other night by a licensed concealed pistol holder. Only thing is, there were 24 rounds fired. Not good with that many rounds flying around.
