    Man shot in foot while attempting robbery

    A man who just finished serving time for common law robbery could be headed back to prison.


    A clerk shot a man attempting to rob the 2Fifth Clothing and Accessories store in the foot Tuesday.


    Police caught up with Shamel McCallum on Tuesday night at New Hanover Regional Medical Center about an hour after police allege he tried to rob a clothing store on 17th Street.

    Trouble began at 6:50 p.m. when police say a store clerk shot a man in the foot who tried to rob 2Fifth Clothing and Accessories at 708 S. 17th St.

    Soon after, Wilmington police officers taped off the scene and interviewed employees. A helicopter flew overhead and a K-9 officer searched nearby neighborhoods.

    Detective M.A. Overton said the suspect left a blood trail. The K-9 lost the trail.

    Within 90 minutes of the robbery attempt, police said a man entered the emergency room, put his hand in his pocket to look like he had a gun and demanded treatment for his injured foot.

    WPD Sgt. J.R. Tyson said hospital police chased the man into a bathroom, then talked him out after he locked the door.

    Wilmington police responded to the hospital.

    Soon after 8 p.m., Tyson said McCallum was receiving treatment and also said he was the suspect in the robbery attempt.

    Though police say McCallum acted as if he had a weapon, they did not find one.

    Tyson also said McCallum told officers hed been released from prison two days earlier after serving time for common law robbery.

    According to the N.C. Department of Correction Web site, McCallum, 28, was convicted in New Hanover County in the fall of 2007 in connection with an offense in August 2006.

    He was sentenced to serve from 20 to 24 months in prison. The site lists his projected release date as Dec. 22.

    OK, what is "common law robbery"? Never heard that term before.

    He'll be back with Bubba and the rest of the gang soon.

    Have to wonder about the clerks ability. Was he aiming at the guys foot, or is he just that bad of a shoot!?
    Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

    This is from Wikipedia.

    The guy who shot him is an employee and it probably wasn't his gun, so he most likely wasn't familiar with it. He was lucky the robber didn't actually have a gun.

    Robbery is the crime of seizing property through violence or intimidation. More precisely, at common law, robbery was defined as taking the property of another, with the intent to permanently deprive the person of that property, by means of force or fear;[1] the precise definition of robbery varies between jurisdictions.

    Common issues in differentiating robbery from simple theft is the degree of force required and when the force is applied. For example, in a purse grab the thief takes a purse off his victim's shoulder. The victim might not have noticed. Whether this is an example of robbery or theft is not clear. What if, in pulling the purse, the victim is pulled to the ground, but still does not have time to offer resistance? Or if the purse strap is cut by the thief with a knife? The answers to these questions will vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.
