    Store Clerk Fights Back - WREG

    FAST FACTS:

    * Lana's Market Employee Shoots And Kills Robber
    * Family Says Man Tried To Rob Store With Taser Gun
    * Police Haven't Said If Store Employee Will Be Charged

    (Memphis 09/02/2009) The flashing blue lights and crime scene tape surrounding Lana's Market on Macon and Wells Station is a scene Gary Belcher will never forget.

    "He had the most coldest, vicious look on his face." as Belcher, a store employee, was leaving the market Wednesday morning he walked right past the man who tried to rob it. He says he was only outside for a matter of seconds before hearing gunshots.

    "When I opened the door Raymond had his shirt off. Raymond had the gun and he was saying, help me Gary, help me. I seen a hand coming up from behind the counter. He was down but he was trying to get the gun from Raymond.

    The man who tried to rob the market died at the hospital. Police have not released his name. A family member of the store owner says whoever it was tried to take money using a taser gun not realizing the clerk had a gun of his own.

    "I don't blame him. I won't blame him a bit," said fellow convenience store owner Riyad Ghoses. He's not surprised a shooting like this one happened, in fact, he says robberies of stories like lana's market happen all the time.

    Right now its getting bad. It's getting bad, bad. Nobody's got a job. Nobody is getting money so what you going to do just try to rob people?"

    He says for protection, many clerks now keep guns in their stores, but he hopes one day they won't have too.

    "If they do heavy, heavy punishment on robbery nothing will happen. If they rob someone next day $100 bond and they are out again. That's the problem the punishment is not heavy."

    Gary Belcher is hoping this is the first and last time he sees a scene like the one he saw this morning, "That was strange, I hope I never see anything like that again, that was very, very strange."

    I have some inside information on this one. The police officers who went to the hospital said that he was coming at the store clerk with the taser saying, "you got any bullets in that gun old man?" I guess he did. I won't say how I know, but take it on good authority that there were ~14 holes in the center mass of the victim. Some of them were undoubtedly exit wounds, but good shooting anyway.

    Memphis is a little bit safer tonight.
    The best preventative medicine is superior fire power.

    The perpetrator wasn't a "victim," by the way. He was the bad guy ... stopped in his tracks.

    14 COM works. Employee of the Month, I'd say.

    Since the clerk works for a non-chain, non-corporate type store, I am assuming he'll be held up as a hero for helping to make his store safe for himself, his colleagues and his customers. One can only hope.

    Memphis, eh? I've got some friends (colleagues) in Memphis, just north of the border. By the sound of things, it just keeps getting worse and worse.
