According to Rappley’s siblings, who spoke with WHIO, it was “wrong” that the employee shot their brother in self-defense.

“He’s got some responsibility, but not all,” Rappley’s sister said. “Right and wrong is wrong, that was wrong for that clerk to shoot my brother in the chest.”

“Yes, he’s robbing them. Oh, well! Call the police, that’s what you’re supposed to do. You’re not supposed to take matters into your own hands!” she continued.
