    Pawn shop manager allegedly shoots would-be robber
    11:50 AM Mountain Standard Time on Monday, August 31, 2009
    PHOENIX -- Two would-be robbers got more than they bargained for when they tried to hit a pawn shop over the weekend.
    The mask-wearing armed men went into the shop near 41st Avenue and Indian School Road late Sunday morning.
    One of the two men was holding a 15-year-old employee at gunpoint by the front door. Sgt. Andy Hill of the Phoenix Police Department said that's when the store's manager pulled out a handgun and fired several shots.
    One of the suspects, a 21-year-old, was hit in the head. At last check, he was in extremely critical condition.
    The other suspect took off in a customer's car, a 1996 green custom-painted Suburban with the Arizona license plate AFC5540. Anybody who sees that vehicle should call 911 immediately.

    Seriously. Three places you'd never want to rob; Police stations, gun store & pawn shop. 'All part of natural selection, I guess...

    Our local pawn is also primarily a gun shop as well. It's run by two old retired LEO's. 'Very knowledgeable guys who OC and CC more hardware than you'd ever guess. I consider it the safest place it town.

    You have to be either really stupid or really desperate to try and rob a pawn shop.

    Good Riddance! Hope the pawn shop owner and the 15 year old are OK....

    Wonder what part of "Gun and Pawn" Mr. Brainiac the Robber didn't understand?

    This location is about two miles straight west of Shooter's World, where I do my indoor range practice, which is my mainstay in this heat. Not the worst but definitely not the best neighborhood in these parts.

    UPDATE: Police said Tuesday that they have arrested the second suspect involved in an armed robbery at a Phoenix pawn shop over the weekend...

    Sgt. Andy Hill said...the store's manager pulled a gun of his own and fire several shots, hitting Villa Nueva, 21, in the head. He later died.

    I'm sure this 21 yr. old BG had family now suffering what is to them a great loss, & my condolences to them for that loss.

    However, I do not lament one bit over his demise, & I only hope he did not pro-create prior to his departure from this world, only to carry-on & continue the cycle of life of this BLEEPIN' POS!

    Geez. Most pawn shops I've known are better armed than the gun shops. At least most gun shop crimes I've seen tend to take place after hours.
