    Would-Be Robber Shot And Killed In Paramount

    (CBS) LOS ANGELES Police say a man who was shot fatally in Paramount Monday evening was a would-be robber.

    The would-be robber entered a mini-mart on the 7000 block of Somerset Boulevard around 5:30 last night armed with a handgun and confronted the employee behind the cash register, said Los Angles County sheriff's Sgt. Don
    Manumaleuna.

    After demanding money, the man slowly backed away toward the door when another employee came from the back of the store, Manumaleuna said.

    As the man turned to look at the other employee, the one behind the register grabbed a gun and shot the intruder, who stumbled out into the parking lot before collapsing, Manumaleuna said.

    The 30-something man, whose name was not immediately released, was taken to a hospital, where he died as a result of his wounds, Manumaleuna said.

    Outstanding - in California even. :)

    If more store employees and owners would take a stand like this, these robberies would become pretty rare.

    kbheiner7,

    It is too bad, but I think too many stores are worried about the ramifications of one of their employees shooting someone ana then getting sued. So what do they do? They have a no gun policy for the store and their employees. I just hope the relativies of the individual that got shot do not decide to sue both the store and the employee.
