March 1st, 2012

A Phoenix liquor store clerk shot a

would-be robber Saturday afternoon, after the robber pulled a

knife on the clerk, police said About 12:30 p.m. two men

went to a liquor store, near 23rd and Northern avenues after

having been there two hours before. During the second trip to the

store, one of the men stayed outside. The other asked the clerk

for a piece of paper. As the clerk was waiting on other

customers, the 29-year-old suspect wrote something on the paper.

After the other customers left, the suspect handed a robbery note

to the clerk. The clerk acted as though he couldn’t read. That’s

when the suspect came towards the clerk and opened a gate, which

separates the clerk from the customers, and pulled out a knife.

Seeing this, the clerk grabbed a gun and shot the suspect. The

suspect ran out of the store and across the street to a friend’s

apartment. He knocked on the door and collapsed. The friend

called 911. Police arrived and the suspect was taken to a local

hospital where he remains in critical condition.\


Moral of this story is : NEVER bring a knife to a gun fight! happy.gif
