Liquor Store Robber Shot And Killed By Clerk
CREST HILL, Ill. (Sun-Times Media Wire) ― A 27-year-old man was fatally shot by a clerk while trying to rob a southwest suburban liquor store Thursday night, the Herald-News is reporting.

About 10 p.m., the suspect, whose identity has not been released, came into S and A Liquor at 1480 Cedarwood Dr. in Crest Hill and demanded money, police said.

"There was a struggle and the clerk fired a shot which appears to have hit the robber before he ran out," Crest Hill Police Chief Dwayne Wilkerson said.

Provena Saint Joseph Medical Center in Joliet later contacted police after a man arrived with a gunshot wound and investigators were able to identify him as the robber.

4. Beats me.
If I had to guess, it's the shaky foundation of their arguments.

3. Another innocent young man emboldened by the sight of a gun into committing a crime
The gun clearly escalated the situation from a friendly confrontation into deadly force.

7. Shooting an unarmed robber. As he was leaving. What heroism.
Doesnt even say the thief had a gun.

Yea.

Impressive.

8. Reading comprehension fail..
"There was a struggle and the clerk fired a shot which appears to have hit the robber before he ran out,"

You know I'd say the fact that the robber was shot during the struggle has more to do with him leaving than your baseless assertion that the robber was shot as he was leaving.

10. Reading is fundamental. There are some place that teach reading to adults for free...
you might want to look into it.
