    Police: Gun store clerk shoots robber
    March 4, 2009 6:35 PM | 22 Comments
    Waukegan police said a clerk at a guns-and-ammunition store appears to have shot a man who was trying to rob the establishment this afternoon.

    Officers responded at about 1:45 p.m. to Mike Schrank's Smoke 'N Gun, 2010 Washington St., to a call of a person shot, according to a police news release.

    There they found a man who had been shot twice in the chest and once in the leg, and a shop clerk who had a gun trained on him, the statement said.

    Witnesses told investigators that the injured man went behind the counter and argued with the clerk.

    The confrontation turned physical and the clerk pulled a handgun and shot the other man, witnesses said. During the struggle, the clerk also shot himself in the hand accidentally.

    The man was taken first to Vista West Medical Center in Waukegan, then to Advocated Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge, where he was taken into surgery. The clerk was taken another local hospital for treatment, police said.

    Police believe the man was trying to rob the store, the statement said.

    In October a 20-year-old man who held up a Waukegan grocery with a pellet gun was shot and killed by a clerk who fired at him after the robbery, as he pedaled from the scene on a bicycle. A Lake County grand jury later declined to indict the store clerk in the killing.

    I think almost everyone at my local impact guns open carries. You would have to be fucking retarded to try and rob a gun store.

    Hell, it's probably policy for any employee that works there.

    :werd: EVERY clerk at the shop/range I go to open carries. Plus they've got two big german shepherds roaming around the shop. Friendly dogs, unless someone tries to cross anyone behind the counter.:noes:

    Every gun store I've ever been in all the employees and half of the customer base is open carrying. Not high on my list of things I'd consider robbing if the SHTF

    Sometimes it works. You guys may or may not remember reading about a guy in Topeka KS who owned a gun store... wasn't carrying... a guy asked to see a 1911, and he was handed one, but he had a loaded mag in his pocket so it was the work of about half a second to have a loaded gun pointed at the clerk's face. The robber got out unscathed and took the clerk's truck too, he got caught in Denver because he was driving wrecklessly. Incidentally, the clerk's carry piece was in the truck at the time of the robbery. Fail.

    Yeah but this was in Illinois...very little of that customer base is allowed to legally carry, hopefully that changes this year though.
