It truly was a life changing experience for Justin Schnieders.
The night of Oct. 13, 2009, saw him have to act to save his life as well as a group of friends.
It also led him to try and educate people how they can protect themselves and not have to go through what he did.
That night, Schnieders was shot during a robbery attempt.
Acting in self-defense, Schnieders shot the robber.
Schnieders was shot by Patrick Harris who had just pulled up Schnieders" coat and saw that he had an empty gun holster.
