    Robber accidentally kills robber

    Thu, 21 Jun 2007

    A robber killed his accomplice and wounded a spaza shop owner they were robbing at Mamelodi East in Pretoria, police said on Thursday.

    Inspector Paul Ramoloko said three men had entered a spaza shop at Phomolong informal settlement before its closing time at 11pm on Wednesday.

    "They pointed a firearm at the owner with the intention to rob him of his money and personal goods," said Ramoloko.

    Owner fought back

    The owner fought back at the assailants.

    "The armed suspect fired a shot at the direction of the victim, but he missed and hit one of his friends."

    The gunmen fired another shot, wounding the shop owner in the thigh.

    Ramoloko said the shot robber died at the scene.

    The two surviving robbers ran away empty-handed and police were still searching for them.

    It must not be too hard to get a job as a writer for a newspaper.

    funny thing is technically he can be charged with murder one, since he killed him while committing a felony
