Naples shooting

In the below-referenced shooting, a man demanded money and then attempted to leave with the clerk's baby in a stroller. The clerk prevented the kidnapping by shooting at the BG's knees. The BG died at a hospital.

I thought it interesting to read that the clerk say that she was trained to aim for the knees. I have to wonder where she received such training. In addition to all the other good reasons for not attempting to shoot for the legs, in this instance it would seem that such a tactic would put the child in the stroller closer to the line of fire.

Also interesting that the BG died after having his legs targeted.
