(Scroll down for video) A family is speaking out and is angry after their son was shot while he was holding up a store at gunpoint.

The family members of the robbery suspect in Mobile, Alabama, are lashing out at the good Samaritan, who shot their son and stopped the robbery.

Adric White, 18, was shot five times at about 5:30 p.m., after he held up a Family Dollar Store.

The suspect’s family is furious that their son was shot by a man, who was not in danger and was not the target of the robbery.

A family member told reporters that the good Samaritan should have minded his own business and he should have left the store.

“If no one had a gun up to him, if no one pointed a gun at him what gives him the right to think that it’s okay to just shoot someone?” The relative of the armed robber said.

“He should have just left the store and went on to do whatever he needed to do,” she added.

The good Samaritan however, defended his actions by saying that the teen held a gun at the store clerk’s head.

“I pulled my gun on him and said: ‘Hey do not move,’” the good Samaritan said.

At that point, the armed robber turned towards a customer so he shot him before the armed robber could shoot.

White was taken to USA Medical Center, where he remains in police custody.

This is not the first time White was arrested for armed robbery. In fact, he is currently out on bail for robbing the Original Oyster House at gunpoint a little over a month before he robbed the Family Dollar Store.

His accomplice, Tavoris Moss, 19, was also arrested in the theft of the Family Dollar Store.

Police said that the good Samaritan who opened fire was justified and no law was broken.var p = new anv_pl_def(); p.config = {}; p.config.width = 610; p.config.height = 360; p.loadVideoExpressV3(‘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|STAGEV3|SPSQA’);
