Was wondering that myself!

Most gun shot wounds are survivable {Survival Rates Similar for Gunshot, Stabbing Victims}, and in this case the wound stopped the attack, but the police still had to taser the crazy guy to take him into custody.

Good lesson to everyone that a single pistol wound may or may not stop an attack.
Also sounded like a single gun shot wound to the chest rather than multiple?
Yes.
As he came closer, the customer pulled out a gun and shot the attacker once in the chest, Hansen said. The man then stumbled out of the store.
A single shot ended the attack in this case.

I agree with pretty much said here and glad a good guy with a gun was able to stop this assault. My question is what was he shot with that he was able to run away from a shot to the chest.

“I never would have expected that from him," she said. "He just seemed like a very meek guy. So I was surprised, but also very grateful. I was very grateful that he was there.
The concealed carrier did this exactly right. People like Hamilton who saw him regularly in public were surprised that he was armed and would have never expected the CHL would do what he did. The CHL was meek, didn't raise any attention or suspicion, and took action at the moment when action was needed. Outstanding job! :tiphat: :patriot:

Re: UT: Starbucks clerk relives attack after customer shoots assailant

Really good article!
...he continued hitting her. Hamilton’s co-workers, however, remained frozen, unsure what to do, she said. “I started to think why no one was helping me, ‘cause he was only hitting me, and I felt kind of angry for a moment,” she said.

Before Hamilton had much time to ponder the question, however, the man picked up a metal supply basket and hit her on the side of the head. Hamilton crumpled, and the man continued kicking her in the back. The only thought left in her mind: "I don't want to die this way."

As soon as she fell to the ground, however, her co-workers ran out the door and began screaming for help....Soon after, she heard a gunshot.
Maybe Starbucks management needs a training day to figure out what they did wrong here. When the only security in Starbucks is the customers who have been respectfully requested not to bring firearms or any weapons by Starbucks chairman Howard Schultz there is a problem.
