A man was working in the upstairs office of a grocery store in Stites, Idaho when two men broke in through a fan vent in the back of the store. As the criminals roamed the inside of the store, one found the man upstairs working and charged him. The man drew a gun and fired at the criminal, striking him in the leg and causing his accomplice to flee. Despite the leg wound, the criminal continued to attack, forcing the armed man to fire again, this shot struck the criminal in the chest, killing him. After the incident the armed man notified the authorities. The investigation is being handled by the FBI and the Nez Perce Tribal Police since the incident occurred on reservation land.
