    Questionable: Durham NC clerk says customer shooting was in self-defense

    Durham, N.C. A Durham store clerk who shot a customer in the leg last week said Friday that he was only protecting himself after the customer threatened to kill him.

    Alaael Ahmed El-Hamalawi, 52, said the man, whom police identified as John Reid Jr., walked into the University Market on West Chapel Hill Street, on April 30, yelling that he had a knife and was going to kill El-Hamalawi.

    El-Hamalawi said Reid also struck him on the hand and broke a window with an electric drill that he had been swinging.

    "If I (had not) ducked, he would have killed me that day," El-Hamalawi said.

    He said he tried to push Reid out of the store, and then he got a gun, warned him and then shot him in the leg.

    No mention on the location of the gun but having to retrieve it prior to shooting may not bode well for El-Hamalawi.
    When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.
