    WICHITA, Kansas, August 25, 2007 - Police say a 40-year-old man walked into the Salyer Pharmacy just before 11:00 a.m. near Market and 21st Street and demanded cash.

    The man who had disguised himself with a handkerchief around his face, produced a handgun when he asked for the money. What he didn't know, was that clerks inside the store were armed as well. Police say one of those clerks also pulled out a handgun and shot the man.

    When police arrived, they rushed the man to a Wichita hospital where he later died. As for the pharmacy, police say nothing was taken, and at this point it appears the shooting was justified.

    "They're in their business, and they have a right to protect themselves," Wichita Police Lieutenant Sam Hanley said. "Based on what I know now, I would say that they were justified in their actions. However, that is something the DA's office and our investigation is going to have to determine."

    Neighbors say the pharmacy has been around for decades. Police believe the robber may also have been after the pharmacy's drugs.

    The robber's name has not been released.

    I looked at the name of the pharmacy, saw "Slayer Pharmacy", and chuckled.

    At least the cop stood up and said it was justified based on what he knew. Half the time the cops/media make it sound like, after someone protects themselves from some POS, they'll be lucky not to go to jail for the rest of their lives.

    since an owner of a nightclub was killed by gang members, wanting to get in... and the cops teaching the area business owners, how to protect themselves... the local media, seems pretty much pro-gun... hopfully no one does anything stoopid, to cause otherwise.

    Armed pharmacists is a fucking awesome idea. There'll be less crimes committed by asshats high on something.
