Customer trying to stop robbery is shot twice

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Police say a customer who tried to stop an armed robbery at a South Philadelphia grocery store has been shot in the head and leg.

Authorities say the attempted robbery happened early Monday night at the Koh Kong grocery store.

Investigators tell KYW-TV that a man entered the store and announced the robbery. The victim, who was a regular customer at the store, tried to intervene and began struggling with the suspect.

Police say the customer was shot twice. He is listed in critical but stable condition at a hospital.

Authorities say the suspect ran out of the store without any taking any money.

And in Cleveland a cop was shot after he attempted to disarm a burglar.

Lesson to the story...odds are the perpetrator with the gun will win.

Good, decent people no longer want to be victimized. I feel for sorry for this man because he was not permitted to carry the tools needed to defend himself or the store. We need to remedy this situation — ALLOW CONCEALED CARRY BY LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS IN ALL PLACES NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Soon Obama will lessen the risks for those wanting to share in your wealth. This could have turned deadly if the customer butting in was armed.
