Store Owner Fights Back After Attempted Robbery
DAYTON -- A clerk at a drive thru fights back when a man tries to rob him at gunpoint.
It happened early Monday morning at the Main Drive in on North Main Street.
It is surprising no one was injured during the shoot out. Police say they found more than 40 shell casings surrounding this store.
Police were called to this drive thru after a person nearby heard several gunshots.
One witness saw the clerk in front of the store shooting at the man who tried to rob him. Police say the would-be robber ran down an alley and then started shooting back at the clerk.
Police say the man did not get any money during the attempted robbery. Officers are still not sure who fired the first shot, but they do say the man was trying to assault the clerk and that the clerk was defending himself.
The suspect was arrested and could be charged with aggravated robbery.
At this point, it does not appear that the clerk will face any charges.
Police say they do not encourage people to fight back when someone tries to rob them.
DAYTON -- Dayton Police have taken a man into custody after an attempted robbery at a drive thru liquor store on North Main Street.
Officers were called after someone heard shots fired, a witness told police the clerk who owns the Main Drive In started shooting at a man trying to rob the store. The men shot at each other a couple of times, while the owner chased down the suspect.
Police caught up to the would-be thief at Odlin Avenue and Cliff Street. They say he didn't get away with any money, but did have a gun on him.
Officers say they don't recommend someone to take the same action the store owner did, "But if he's in eminent danger of life, and he had a weapon, he did what he thought was best to protect himself," said Sgt. Creigee S. Coleman with the Dayton Police Department.
Police say right now, it doesn't appear the store owner will face charges.
