Armed Robber Shot By Clerk At Corner Food Mart

posted on August 2, 2016

Last Friday night, in a residential suburb northwest of Cincinnati, an intruder attempted an armed robbery at a small convenience store—and came face-to-face with a concealed-carry permit holder behind the counter. 

Cheviot, Ohio, police are reporting to WKRC Local 12 that a man in his late 20s entered the Harrison Food Mart wearing a grey hoodie, surgical gloves and a mask. He then showed the clerk his weapon, holding him at gunpoint.

However, the clerk—a licensed Right-to-Carry permit holder—managed to fire his gun first in self-defense. The suspect fled the store, but only after being struck by a bullet from the clerk’s firearm. Police found the aggravated robbery suspect in a matter of minutes, taking him to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center as well as into custody. His identity has not been released to the public.
