The Hartford Courant, Hartford, CT, 10/26/98

Monday, February 1, 1999

Pharmacy owner Richard Bromberg, 60, was in the habit of catching up on paperwork in his Hartford, Connecticut, store on Sunday afternoon, but this time would be different. Although it was obvious to nearby residents that Bromberg was working inside his store, a would-be thief, apparently oblivious to the proprietor's presence, brazenly broke out the store's plate-glass door and crawled over broken glass to get inside. Brombert confronted the man and ordered him to stop, but the man continued to advance. That's when Bromberg fired, striking the man in the head and sending him to the hospital in critical condition.
