    Would-be robber killed in fight with store clerk

    CENTERFIELD -- A man was killed in a struggle for his gun when he tried to rob a Centerfield convenience store early Monday morning. Police arrived to find the man dead on the store's floor.
    According to investigators, the man approached one of the clerks at the Walkers convenience store off Highway 89 in Centerfield at about 12:20 a.m. as she was taking out the garbage at closing. He took her hostage at gunpoint. He then went in the store and took the other clerk hostage as well.
    He forced them to tie each other up so he could steal the money. However, one of the clerks fought back and got the robber's gun away from him. That is when one of the clerks used the suspect's gun to shoot and kill him.
    The clerks then called 911 and, officers arrived to find the robber killed.
    The name of the suspect is not being released, pending notification of the next of kin.
    Police say they believe the clerk was justified in shooting the suspect.
    The store is back open for business as usual.

    Must be a typo, .22 cannot kill.

    Good for the clerk. Honestly, if you are not armed, then it would be best to just let the robber have the $$... but if he starts tying people up, then that crosses a line and imho, you might as well fight for your life no matter the risk...
