Warning Shot Scares Away Pizzeria Robbers
The Buffalo News: Latest Local News: Pizzeria owner on Clinton fires shot, thwarting two robbers
Not sure that shooting through the plexiglass was a good idea, but it seemed to have worked.
The 78-year-old owner of a Clinton Street pizzeria averted a robbery Monday night when he fired a single warning shot, prompting two robbers to run away, police reported.
The attempted robbery took place inside Bocce Club Pizzeria, 630 Clinton, at about 7:40 p.m. when two men entered his business and one pointed a handgun at the owner, according to Ferry-Fillmore District Police.
The owner retaliated by pulling out his own gun and firing a single shot through the pizzeria's plexiglass, which scared off the thieves, police said.
This is the second time this month that robbers have targeted this pizzeria.
On Jan. 2, the owner was confronted at about 7 p.m. by two men who entered his business and one of the men pulled out a black semiautomatic pistol and demanded money from the cash register. During that incident, the men fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.

I hope he shot, "at" them and not, at the plexiglass to "scare them" away

Almost sounds like a premature discharge, or even a duck, point and fire. I hope that Plexiglas was a wall menu cover, or a splash guard.
