"GRAND RAPIDS -- No charges will be brought against a Grand Rapids store manager who fatally shot a man during an attempted robbery..."
"...Kent County Prosecutor William Forsyth says he reviewed the police report and surveillance video taken inside the store during the incident and made his decision relatively quickly. He told 24 Hour News 8 the store manager was protecting his own life and the lives of his coworkers..."
"...In his case it's self defense and it's also defense of others. ...The hero tag gets put on a lot of people and I think it gets overused. But what he did was pretty heroic here," Forsyth said."
"...24 Hour News 8 discovered a staggering increase in the number of people with CCW permits in Kent County. In 2000, 185 people had permits. A year later, the law loosened up dramatically.. Now, 3,900 people have permits."
