FORT MILL, SC– More stolen guns on the street tonight after a Fort Mill gun store was burglarized for a second time this year.
Fort Mill police say three men drove a vehicle through the front doors of the JJ Aim Right Gun Shop a little before six this Monday morning and took an undisclosed number of guns.
The robbers then ditched the first vehicle, and took off in another.
“I pulled up further and saw the store had an actual car in it and I though someone must have broken in and the go all guns, and sure enough that’s what happened,” said Galen Beaty
That same gun store was broken into back in January when two men broke in and took 14 handguns.
