    Post Barista in Eugene shoots, kills robber

    EUGENE -- Two men tried to rob a Dutch Bros. coffee shop Wednesday and police say one of them may have been shot dead by a barista acting in self-defense.

    The shooting took place about 9 p.m. at a Dutch Bros. near the University of Oregon campus at Franklin and Walnut.

    Police said at least one of the suspects was armed.

    A witness counted 18 police cars responding to the shooting. "We left the restaurant, came down the alley here. There was a gentleman here that said he heard multiple gunshots, sounded like one series then a break, then a small other series."

    The dead man was in the entryway of the drive-through coffee stand, police said.

    The second suspect got away. He was described as a white man with blonde hair, wearing jeans, brown hiking shoes and zip-up 'puffy' coat with fold-down collar.

    I think it's interesting that just about all of the comments are pro.

    Dutch Brothers has told the employee invovled in the shooting to "take a month off".

    A MONTH OF PAID LEAVE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    AND

    The Lane County DA has said "No criminal charges will be filed".

    OUTSTANDING...may I suggest that we drop by a Dutch Bros pick up a cup of coffee, and drop of a little note or letter of support for their outstanding corporate reaction.

    KUDO'S in this case!

    as per my email to dutch brother the day after the shooting, they get my coffee consumption dollars from now on, provided they dont find a way to force this man out when he returns.

    tomorrow my family will buy 10 cups of dutch bros coffee, and with each purchase from now on we will make it known that we support the company that supports its brave employee.

    Yes. Kudos to Dutch Bros. and kudos to OCDO memebers. DB deserves as much support as Starbucks, perhaps more as they are a locally owned franchise.
