I'm still not sure how this one will finally turn out.
Looks like the BG that brought his own gasoline with him should have used LEAD FREE. :rofl:
Attempted Robbery Leads To Shooting In Tacoma
September 29, 2005
By KOMO Staff
TACOMA - A shooting during an attempted robbery at a Tacoma auto store has sent two people to the hospital.
Police say a clerk at the Shucks Auto Supply near 72nd and Portland streets spotted and then confronted a man putting gas into a small motorcycle in their display window.
But the man told the clerk he was robbing the store anyway, and then pulled a gun.
However, another customer in the store was armed, and he pulled his own gun, yelling at the suspect to drop his weapon.
At some point, shots were then fired. Exact details are still sketchy, but the suspect ended up getting hit, as did a nearby store clerk.
The two wounded were taken to the hospital. Initial reports are that the clerk's wound was minor, but the suspect's wound was more serious. The customer who pulled the gun on the suspect was not injured.
The brother of the customer who had his own gun said the situation must have become dire.
"The suspect must have done something to have it coming because Joe wouldn’t have gotten involved and risked somebody else's life if it wasn't necessary," said Karl Phillips.
Police are still investigating.
