A Central City hubcap store-owner shot and killed a man during an
armed robbery attempt. The owner of Meyer's Auto Parts told police
that a man entered his store around 6 p.m. and asked him several
questions about hubcaps. The man then appeared to look around the
store a few times, which made the owner nervous. The shopkeeper
wisely retrieved a gun from under the counter and discreetly tucked
it into the small of his back. Shortly thereafter, the suspect drew
a small Russian-made pistol and demanded money. The owner reported
that he reached behind his back in a deliberate motion as though he
was going for his wallet, but drew his gun instead. Police reported
that the owner apparently fired one time, hitting the robbery
suspect in the chest. The gunman ran from the store but collapsed
nearby and was later pronounced dead at the hospital.
