Nice Shooting There Citizen
- Two would-be robbers were shot to death at a liquor store in the Gresham neighborhood Saturday night, sources said.
Police were at the scene of an attempted armed robbery at Z&S Food & Liquor in the 1300 block of West 87th Street Saturday night, according to Police News Affairs. Two men were shot to death by a store employee around 8:30 p.m. when they tried to rob the store, sources said.
Citing preliminary information, authorities said two men walked into the store, and one of them hopped over the counter.
That robber hit the clerk standing behind the counter, while the other remained in front of the counter, authorities said.
Meanwhile, a relative of the store owner heard a commotion from upstairs and saw the robbery suspects from a stairwell, authorities said.
He pulled out a gun and opened fire on the two men, killing them both, authorities said. At least one of them was armed with a gun.
HeyJackass has a link to a twitter picture from inside the store:
Note the nearby pistol on the carpet. This is the second hold-up in about four years that has ended badly for the stick-up men, but we guess that's not really a lesson you can pass along to your offspring if you fail the first time.
