— Police on Thursday identified the man killed in a store robbery two weeks ago.

Bernal Ramiro Miguel Parral, also known as Ramiro Miguel Parral Bernal, 28, was one of three men who tried to rob the Tienda Hispana Mi Barrio II, at 3913 Western Blvd., on Oct. 2, police said.

A clerk pulled out a handgun and exchanged gunfire with one of the suspected robbers, police said. Parral was wounded and died at the scene.

The other two suspected robbers fled the scene, and police continue to search for them.

Investigators in Wake County and Garner are trying to determine if the trio also were responsible for other recent holdups.

Anyone with information about the Tienda Hispana case is asked to call the Raleigh Police Department's Detective Division at 919-890-3555 or Crime Stoppers at 919-226-CRIME.

    "As a college educated, owner of weapons, a small buisness owner, and a registered republican, I am voting for Obama. I have no concern for any weapons ban. Give the owner of the tienda a medal and make this story headline news so any would be robbers consider the consequence"

    As a small business owner, are you planning on retirement soon? If not, are you willing to share the wealth? I cannot afford to share the wealth with people that make babies for a living.

    I work for mine, they should work for theirs.

    Denny Crane would be proud. "Watch...wallet...GUN...knee...right foot...left foot...Thank God for guns, eh Jerry?"

    "I have no concern for any weapons ban." Then you are one of the most ill informed voters of all time.

    This is just sad. If we could just ban all guns then neither of these people would have had guns to shoot at each other. Hopefully when my buddy Obama taxes guns and ammo 500% likes he's proposed in the past no law abiding store clerk will be able to afford one and the poor misguided robber will still be alive to sing in the church choir.

    This is so very sad. No one deserves to be killed for any reason. Bless his family and friends.

    His posse exchanged gunfire, so your telling me that if someone pulls a gun on you and you have yours you're not going to fire back b/c no one deserves to be killed??

    God bless his family though.
