Siblings Outraged by Their Brother’s Fatal Shooting Dismiss the Fact He Was an Armed Robber – ‘Oh Well!”

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Two siblings are outraged at the shooting death of their brother.

An employee at a Dayton Dollar General gunned him down.

Tragically, 23-year-old Roosevelt Rappley was fired upon inside the store along the 2200 block of North Gettysburg Avenue Wednesday night.

Siblings Rochelle and Tone Rappley are furious.

Rochelle told local Channel 7 the worker had no business having a gun onsite to start with, let alone fatally targeting her brother.

Horribly, Roosevelt’s the pair’s second of ten siblings to perish from gun violence.

“[W]rong is wrong. That was wrong for that clerk to shoot my brother in the chest…”

Tone’s in complete shock:

“I still don’t believe it. … [A]t the end of the day, I don’t believe my brother’s dead. … [I]t ain’t kicked in yet.”

Police have confirmed that the employee — who was legally allowed to possess a firearm — was indeed the gunman.

However, even given the shock of his shooting, Rochelle does grant Roosevelt partial responsibility:

“He’s got some responsibility, but not all!”

Reporter Molly Koweek summed it up:

“The pair acknowledges that [it] was wrong for Roosevelt Rappley to try and rob the Dollar General…but they say the clerk shouldn’t have had a gun at work.”

The worker wasn’t the only one packing heat:

“Police say…Roosevelt…showed a gun and demanded cash Wednesday.”


In a 911 call, a man told dispatchers that a man with a gun attempted to rob him at the store.

“He pointed a gun at me,” the caller said. “I had a firearm on me. I pulled my firearm and I shot him in self defense.”

The caller also said the suspect “shot back,” but it is not clear how many shots were fired during the incident.

[Lt. Jason Hall] told dispatchers there [were] other staff in the store at the time and that the suspect pointed a gun at them as well.

Rochelle appears to believe the store employee was being reprehensibly petty:

“Yes, he’s robbin’ y’all — oh WELL.”

She thinks a little bit of decorum was in order:

“Call the police. That’s what y’all are supposed to do.”

Cops say Roosevelt might’ve been involved in other robberies, too.

But Rochelle is indignant:

“Y’all are not supposed to take matters into y’all’s own hands. If that’s the case, I’ll take matters into my own hands.”

We’re living in dangerous times, and care must always be taken. Roosevelt Rappley fell victim to a serial malady in this brutal world: He was victimized by the deadly threat of a loaded gun — while he was trying to do the same to others instead, as he robbed the snot out of them.
