I like how the cop says "the clerk then grabbed his little .38" Looked like his little .38 did the trick.So Pomona, California. after 11pm at a liqour store on a strip mall type area.
Call comes in to 911 dispatch stating that he was the owner of a liqour store and that he shot the robber in self defense.
This is an old clip off of the show COPS But basically they have cameraman in the dispatch center and with the Shift Sergeant in a patrol car.
This is the video
Now I think this is an example of an incident handled perfectly by all parties
The owner shoots the robber after the robber strikes his employee with the sawed off rifle/shotgun apparently a round was fired by the robber, and the owner put two .38 slugs in the robbers brain bucket.
The owner promptly calls 911, while the owner is obviously in shock he does seem to keep the details to the basics (I was under attack, I shot him, the location is....)
The police promptly respond to the scene. The Shift Sergeant looks at the injured employee and tells the owner "he's going to have to go to the hospital" now was the sergeant saying that just becuase of his inury? or maybe he was genuinely looking out for the legal interests of the owner as a hospital trip would document the injuries sustained to the employee from the armed felon.
finally it does not appear that anyone was arrested at the scene, while the video is old enough that I can't find any followup media stories, the attitude of the officers is a strong indication that the shooting was probably adjudicated in favor of the owner. It's rather difficult to prosecute when the cops don't seem to think you did anything wrong.
Anyone who knows any resolution of this case please PM me or post below
Also I would think this is a textbook example of how the immediate aftermath of a DGU should go.
I personally think the shop owner was in the right and the police responded professionaly and did their job on this one, what do you think? is there anything that the clerk/owner/cops could've done better in this scene?
