Clerk fires at suspect trying to break-in through roof
DURHAM (WTVD) -- Authorities in Durham have arrested a suspect after he allegedly tried to break into a convenience store after hours, but was surprised by a clerk who shot at him.
It happened just after 2:30 a.m. Friday at the M&M shop at the corner of North Mangum and West Corporation streets.
The store was closed at the time, but the clerk told ABC11 that he was guarding the business after another suspect made a hole in the roof days earlier and stole from the cash register, according to the owner who caught it all on surveillance video.
Despite an alarm system and a quick police response, that suspect got away.
Frustrated, the store owner spent the night Thursday to protect the business. He said he was awaken during the early morning hours when another man tried to sneak in through the roof. It was then he told a 911 operator that he fired shots at the suspect, hitting him in the foot.
By the time police officers arrived, the wounded suspect had already fled the scene, but he didn't get far.
I bet he was easy to find also.
When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

Glad to hear that this repeat offender was caught because the sheep dog fought back.

Go for the business owner.
I hope the criminal's foot has to be amputated.

The right guy got hurt this time. Nice to hear that the BG got some lead poisoning.

Why has no one here questioned why the intruder was shot in the first place? What threat of violence was the store owner reacting to?
I just hope the store owner does not get charged or sued.

Why? Because many here may align themselves with Uncle Ted..."No repeat offenders, just dead offenders."
Should he have waited until the dirtbag fully entered and then see if he was going to be violent or not?
No one invited the dirtbag in to rob, steal, or worse...he got what he got...end of story!

The clerk should have let him get a little further into the building and shot him higher up than in the foot.

Ha. The place was on Magnum street.

NY: Janitor blast kills grocery store punk: "Supermarket janitor Angel Candido grabbed a shotgun early yesterday and fatally blasted a burglar who tried to clean out the store in the middle of the night, cops said. Candido, who was working an overnight shift at the Met market at Jamaica Avenue and 173rd Street, was taking an authorized catnap in a crawl space below the store’s office when he suddenly awoke up at 2 a.m. to see two men drop from the ceiling. He watched silently as the burglars, who had cut a hole in the roof, made their way to the office safe. Then the hardworking employee grabbed hold of the weapon — which he keeps with him when he sleeps — and fired a single blast. Mamadou Koureichi, 27, of 88-09 148th St., was pronounced dead at the scene with a wound to the torso. His unidentified accomplice fled, leaving the burglary tools behind.
