The owner of a Highland Springs, Va., convenience store shot
and killed a man during a robbery attempt. According to police
spokesman Tom Shumate, two men entered the store. One of them, Brian
Huskerson, Jr., wore a mask and was armed with a pistol. Huskerson
pointed his gun at the owner and demanded money. The robber's
attention was apparently diverted for a moment when the owner's son
walked up an aisle in the store. The owner then made his move,
pulling a gun he had hidden behind a counter and firing multiple
shots at Huskerson. Both robbers then fled the store without getting
any cash. Huskerson was found collapsed about 60 ft. from the store.
