A Coachella, California, store clerk, who said he'd been
robbed at gunpoint twice previously, defended himself when a robber
aimed a gun at him in the Y&M Market. Mohammed Alwishah told
deputies that two men entered the store one Friday about noon. One
man pulled a six-pack of beer out of a cooler. "He took it to the
counter as if he was going to buy it," said Deputy Sarah Bautista.
The second man then allegedly pulled out a gun and pointed it at
Alwishah's head; but the clerk grabbed his gun and shot first,
hitting the gunman in the leg and stomach. After the shooting, the
second crook fled along with two other men who had been at the front
of the store, said Bautista. Alwishah later said, "I thank God
everything is all right now."
