The attempted holdup of a Charlotte area shoe store was foiled when
a store employee returned fire against robbers who had begun
shooting inside the store. According to witnesses, three or four men
wearing ski masks and carrying guns entered the store, announcing,
"This is a robbery." One of the thieves began searching store
patrons and, shortly thereafter, the men began shooting. However, a
store clerk quickly grabbed a gun of his own and fired back,
striking at least two of the crooks. One crumpled in a doorway and
later died at the hospital. Another man, whom police suspect was
involved in the robbery, arrived at an area hospital with
life-threatening injuries. Neither the clerk nor any store employees
or customers were injured. "The [clerk] did a good job. He saved us.
He saved my kid. He saved our lives," said store customer Ramon
