    GOOD - Phoenix liquor store clerk shoots would-be robber

    Phoenix liquor store clerk shoots would-be robber

    The Arizona Republic

    A Phoenix liquor store clerk shot a would-be robber Saturday afternoon, after the robber pulled a knife on the clerk, police said.
    Phoenix police gave this account:
    About 12:30 p.m. two men went to a liquor store, near 23rd and Northern avenues after having been there two hours before.
    During the second trip to the store, one of the men stayed outside. The other asked the clerk for a piece of paper.
    As the clerk was waiting on other customers, the 29-year-old suspect wrote something on the paper. After the other customers left, the suspect handed a robbery note to the clerk. The clerk acted as though he couldn't read.
    That's when the suspect came towards the clerk and opened a gate, which separates the clerk from the customers, and pulled out a knife. Seeing this, the clerk grabbed a gun and shot the suspect.
    The suspect ran out of the store and across the street to a friend's apartment. He knocked on the door and collapsed. The friend called 911.
    Police arrived and the suspect was taken to a local hospital where he remains in critical condition.

    Sounds like good SA on the part of the clerk!

    Good job. I love that he acted like he couldn't read! I especially love that he was armed and able to neutralize the threat, not unarmed and only able to be a victim.
    Don't frisk me, I am the weapon.

    Out here in the Phoenix area, it's a very believable ruse...

    Outstanding. I love clear cases with absolutely no question as to appropriateness or legality of the response.

    Nice shooting on the part of the clerk.
    Yep, the old 'don't bring a knife to a gunfight' routine.

    The liquor store next to the Fred Myers in Renton has been hit several times. The clerks there are still unarmed but they have LEOs around there sometimes. Personally I think its a waste of time for 2 LEOs to be patrolling a liquor store.

    I wouldn't mind it if I was the LEO. They probably get a few discounts.

    I think our wounded man is a little past 'would-be robber' at that point. Past and took a wrong turn, actually.

    Police arrived and the suspect was taken to a local hospital where he remains in critical condition.
    With a little luck, he will soon assume room temperature.
