Cortez McClinton (left) and Terrell Johnson attempted to rob a St. Louis home at gunpoint by using a 17-year-old girl as a human shield, but the would-be robbers hadn’t counted on one thing — the girl’s father. The men grabbed the 17 year old girl as she was retrieving items from her car outside the home. McClinton and Johnson allegedly used her as a human shield and put a gun to her head when her father, 34, saw them approaching. The teen’s father grabbed his gun and fired shots at the pair from the home. He killed Johnson and wounded McClinton as they came through the door.
The girl’s mother also shot at the men, but did not hit anyone, according to StLToday.com.
