At first, nothing seemed unusual about the man inquiring about a DVD
player at a Bucks County, Pa., pawnshop and check-cashing business.
But 10 minutes minutes after he left, he returned with two
accomplices, one of whom pointed a gun at the store owner. When a
female employee sought refuge behind a steel door, the gun-toting
man fired several shots at her. Outnumbered, the store owner drew
his gun and fired, striking two of the intruders, including the man
who was armed. One suspect lay injured on the floor until paramedics
arrived, while his accomplices fled only to be apprehended by
police. The store owner suffered a gunshot wound to his hand.
"Certainly this should send a message to anyone who wants to carry
out a crime in Bucks County that you can't go around terrorizing
people. You may find yourself on the other end ...," said District
Attorney Diane Gibbons.
