An employee at a Georgia restaurant shot and killed an armed intruder who busted into the establishment and pistol-whipped him before meeting the business end of the worker’s gun.

The now-deceased criminal, later ID’d as 23-year-old Joshua Hickey, reportedly busted into an American Philly N Wings in Warner Robins, Georgia last week and demanded the employee fork over cash from the register before jumping the counter and pistol-whipping the guy. That’s when police say the employee pulled his own legally-carried firearm in self-defense and fired three times, hitting the thief twice.

Hickey fled the scene but was later found by police and taken to a nearby hospital, where he died. The victim, on the other hand, is fine, and will be celebrating Christmas with his loved ones.
