In that fish-wrap called the Palm Beach Post !
I am surprised they didn't twist the story more.
Happy ending anyway !!!
DELRAY BEACH — DELRAY BEACH- A man who tried to rob a convenience store at gunpoint ended up being killed by the store clerk Saturday night, according to police.
The apparent robber, who has not been identified, ran into the Community Food Market at 139 Northwest Fifth Ave. around 10 p.m. and tried to rob the store, according to a police report.
A clerk saw the man with the gun and ducked behind the counter before the robber started shooting at the clerk. The clerk grabbed a gun from behind the counter and returned fire, hitting the robber.
After the shootout, the clerk ran from the store and called 911, according to the report. Police found the would-be robber lying on the ground in front of the store still clutching a semiautomatic handgun in his right hand. He had been shot once in the chest.
The man, who had no identification on him, was taken to Delray Medical Center, where he died. Police are still trying to identify the robber.
The clerk, who was not injured, was questioned but was not taken into custody, said Delray Beach police spokesman Jeff Messer.
Messer said police are investigating to see if the man is connected to any other unsolved robberies in the city.
Anyone with information on the incident can call the Delray Beach police at (561) 243-7800, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-458-TIPS (8477).

The second rule: "Bring enough gun"

One well-placed round is all it takes sometimes. Well done!

That was great read that in the news. This area seems very hot the more I read the news seems to always have some sort of gas station or coveinant store robberies. I read he got him with a S&W 40cal. and the guy already was wanted for a murder according te the Sun Sentinel. Glad this guy gone.
