Good shoot in WV pharmacy...
Good shoot in WV pharmacy...Looking at the video and the way he ran after the first shot, but was still holding the gun behind him... I'm betting there would have been some bunched panties if this occurred in NY or NJ.

Quote:PINCH, W.Va. — A Kanawha County pharmacist shot and killed a masked, would-be robber who walked into his business Wednesday morning and pulled out a gun.

Good Family Pharmacy employee Chris Monk said pharmacist Don Radcliff first attempted to “feel the guy out.” Monk said Radcliff pointed at the man, who was wearing a bandanna over his face, and was “just kind of joking with him,” saying “Are you here to rob me?”

The suspect pulled out a gun in response.

Radcliff, who had already started reaching for the gun under his white pharmacy coat, just in case, opened fire.

He fired three shots. The first hit the suspect’s chest, the second hit his gun, jamming it, and the third hit the suspect’s abdomen. One employee said the suspect was trying to shoot back during that time.

The whole incident happened within a matter of seconds.

Radcliff and a pharmacy intern tried to render aid, but the suspect later died of his wounds.

As Radcliff tried to stop the bleeding from the suspect’s chest, he said ,“Why did you make me do this?” and “I didn’t mean to do this,” according to employees who were there.

The incident occurred at about 9:45 a.m. at the small but busy pharmacy, located at 242 North Pinch Road. It did not close after the incident. The employees swept up the glass from a broken window, then returned to assisting a steady stream of customers.

“We cleaned it up pretty quickly and got back to work,” Monk said. “There was no blood — just the glass.“

Pharmacy owner Joe Good, who was on his way to the pharmacy when the shooting occurred, took over, while Radcliff went home for the rest of the day.

“He’s a lot more tore up now that he found out the guy died,” Good said.

The pharmacy has never been robbed before, but employees do prepare for the possibility.

“It’s always in the back of your mind,” Good said. “You just try to be prepared for it, because it happens.”

Sgt. Sean Snuffer, of the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Department, said the suspect was taken into surgery but died at CAMC. His identity will be released once family members are notified.

Snuffer said charges will not be filed against Radcliff.

Interesting he tried to keep the would be robber alive until the EMTs showed up. In this situation from what you can tell of the article would you have done the same? Also interesting after the shooting they went right back to business as usual the same day.
