Tommy Hawk, his wife Evelyn, and their 19-year-old grandson Luke were killed in the robbery at their gun range, the Lock, Stock, and Barrel. Luke was home for Spring break at the time.
“It’s really hard. The store’s been here for a long time. The range (has) been here for a long time and there’s people from all around (that) come shoot here.”
Grantville Police Chief Steve Whitlock to 13wmaz
Luke was there to help his grandparents because Tommy was still recovering from a stroke, and was only then just getting back to a regular schedule. The Hawk family generally closed the shop at 5:30 and were home by 6. When they didn’t come home, their son went to the range where he found them and called 911.
There was a robbery at the lock stock and barrel shooting range at around 530- 6pm on Friday. Officers were dispatched to the scene shortly after 8pm. Sadly it was found that the owner, his wife, and their grandson had been murdered. Approximately 40 weapons and the camera DVR were taken from the scene. The GBI was called in to work the case. Due to the amount of weapons taken, the ATF was also called in to assist as well as members from the Coweta County Sheriff’s department. Let’s keep Richard Hawk and Family in our prayers. Anyone having driven by the shooting range during the time frame of 530pm to 630 pm that may have seen vehicles other than a white Ford dually truck and a black Ford expedition are asked to contact the police department. Please share, maybe someone will remember seeing something to assist with the investigation.

The Twitterverse was awash with liberals crying that guns don’t save people. They might have if the robbers hadn’t “got the drop” on the people who were closing up. As a general rule, guns can’t shoot themselves. The Twitterverse apparently doesn’t know that nor do they know the concept of “too soon”
Community in shock after triple murder in Coweta County, $15K reward offered https://t.co/pMmtmcxYsw So the second amendment and all of their guns didn't protect this family. Maybe we need even more guns.

Hmm. Weird. A whole shop full of guns didn't protect the family who owned the shooting range. It's almost like we should….have fewer guns? But what do I know. https://t.co/IyoseZvmcp
