A good Samaritan is now an honorary deputy in Georgia after shooting a suspected armed robber at a Hardee’s in Georgia on Saturday.

Joseph Chilton was delivering bread to the Ellenwood restaurant early in the morning when he saw a gunman pointing his weapon at a female employee, according to the Clayton County Sheriff’s Office.

Chilton ran back to his truck to retrieve his own firearm. He then confronted the suspect.

“The bread man put his gun up. The robber put his gun up and the bread man shot at him four times,” manager Keysa Roberts told TV station WSB. “His car was here, but he was able to stumble off into the woods.”

Suspect Damario Parrish was shot twice. He later surrendered after hiding in a house in nearby Conley.

Parrish is being treated under watch for his wounds at a hospital, according to the sheriff’s office.

Clayton County Sheriff Victor Hill praised Chilton for “defending those who could not defend themselves,” and promoted the bread delivery man to honorary deputy for his bravery.

“They got him thanks to our bread man,” Hardee’s employee Helene Berkowitz told WSB.
