A Berwick, Penn., convenience store owner's stepfather shot a man
when he attacked the owner with a claw hammer. Owner Barry Masick
was waiting on a "customer" who wanted to buy a soda and chips, but
didn't have enough money. The man left the store and went over to a
truck and then returned with a claw hammer and struck Masick on the
side of his head. Masick shouted for Albert Evans, his stepfather
and partner who lives with him in a house next to the store. Evans
came running in with a handgun loaded with birdshot. When the
assailant saw the gun, he raised the hammer toward Evans, who shot
him. The suspect fled the store, holding his neck. The suspect
later turned himself in to receive medical treatment and was
charged with felony robbery, theft and simple assault.
