ATLANTA — On Saturday morning while delivering bread to the Hardee’s on Anvilblock Rd, Joseph Chilton observed employees running out of the back door and a woman screaming for help. It turns out that Chilton was making his bread delivery while there was an armed robbery in progress being committed by Damario Kentrell Parrish. Parrish had jumped across the counter and pointed a weapon at a female employee demanding cash.
Chilton ran back to his truck to get a firearm and ran back in to help the female in distress. Chilton end up shooting Parrish twice, but Parrish managed to flee the scene. Parrish made it to a house in Conley on Jewell Terrance Rd where he was tracked by Clayton County Police and Sheriff’s Deputies. Parrish refused to come out. When advised that children were in the residence with Parrish, Sheriff Victor Hill activated his SWAT team to respond. Before SWAT arrived, the children came out safely and soon afterward Parrish came out and surrendered.
Deputies are now watching Parrish at a local hospital where he is being treated for gunshot wounds so that he will be healthy enough to be booked into jail.
Sheriff Victor Hill was so impressed with Chilton for “defending those who could not defend themselves” that he made him a Honorary Deputy and inducted him into The Sheriff’s Posse Hall of Fame.
