When two masked men armed with shotguns approached a Springfield,
Ohio, drive-through beverage store, three people fled the store and
ran out to the street. One of the armed men followed the fleeing
customers until a passerby picked them up in his car and drove them
to safety. Meanwhile, his accomplice entered the store and began
banging on the cash register with his gun. When store owner
Clifford Conley observed the bizarre goings on via a security
monitor in his office, he dialed 9-1-1 and left the line open as he
retrieved his .22-cal. semi-automatic pistol. As Conley left the
office, he encountered one robber, ordered him to stop and fired a
shot. The robber raised his gun and Conley fired two more shots,
possibly hitting the man, who then dropped his gun and limped away.
After additional gunfire was exchanged, Conley locked the door to
his store and waited for police to arrive.
