An East Hartford, Conn., pawn shop employee shot and killed
one of two masked men when they attempted to rob the store. Bill
Kane was working in the rear of Tom's Pawn Shop about 5:30 one
Tuesday evening when two masked men armed with metal pipes entered
the store. Kane's coworker, Ralph Lane, was working at a jewelry
bench at the front of the store when the men came in and began
swinging the pipes and demanding that the safe be opened. When one
robber hit Lane, he pressed an alarm button that summoned police.
The second robber headed toward the back of the store. Kane warned
the approaching miscreant that he was armed, but the man continued
toward him with a metal pipe. Kane then drew his .380-cal. handgun
and shot the robber. Upon hearing the shots, the robber's cohort
fled the scene.
