    Suspect Killed in Robbery Attempt
    by Seth Voorhees
    Published Jul 06, 2006

    A bar owner shot a would-be robber to death at his establishment on Lyell Avenue.

    The incident occurred at Kitzel's bar on Lyell Avenue. Police say shortly after noon Thursday, a man attempted to rob the place when he was shot dead by the owner, John Kitzel of Rochester .

    “He'd give you the shirt off his back, if you asked him for it,” said Susan Kitzel, daughter of the bar owner. “That’s the truth.”

    Police have not released the name of the deceased gunman.

    Police recovered handguns, believed to belong to both Kitzel and the suspect. Police say there were no witnesses.

    “The two individuals were inside the establishment by themselves,” said David Moore, Rochester Police Chief. “The operator was actually opening up when this happened.”

    The case will be presented to a grand jury, though police say the preliminary indication is the shooting was done in self defense.

    Thank goodness the bar owner was in a position to defend himself! Who knows what may have happened to the bar owner if he had been unarmed!

    The gun-grabbers will try, but they will not take your guns away from you!

    Everything on what is given suggests a justifiable shooting - hope that pans out quickly and easily for the owner in his favor.

    Pity it has to go Grand Jury tho - no witnesses does make it somewhat more complicated. I wonder if the perp had a rap sheet - that would help.

    Any further reports with more details would be useful if anyone finds anything.

    I will keep the thread updated if there are more news reports. Here is one more report but the details are the same. Sometimes they update the story so checking back later might work.

    I do have to say... That stretch of Lyell ave is one of the places I avoid, armed or not.

    I work in Rochester myself, most days. Glad to see this worked out -- but of course they'll crucify him if they can find any way to do it, this being New York.

    Sad situation. If the bar owner would have simply just handed over the money,nobody would have gotten hurt.

    Just kiddin'.

    Attaboy, Barkeep!

    Not an optimal result with the Grand Jury and all, but unjustified persecution in court is better than the morgue.

    Move to the South, you are better suited down here. I use to work for IBM here in Texas. I have been to "up state NY" on business trips. I love the people up there. However, they are out numbered by the sleeeeeeez in NY city.

    Does NY law require a Grand Jury, or is it "discretionary" for the DA? Anyone know? I don't know if there's such a thing (a legal requirement to convene a GJ), but otherwise, why is it even going - other than political pressure and "environment".

    I don't believe it is required by law, no. It's just the local leftist establishment doing everything it can to create a criminal-friendly environment.

    Requiring a license makes it illegal to do something that was lawful before the license was required.
