Robbers shoot store owner after holdup

Posted June 10, 2008

— Two men who held up a convenience store wounded the owner Tuesday after he ran outside to see how they were getting away, police said.

The robbery happened at the 3G Mart at 320 Stancil St. about 11:30 a.m., officers said.

Two men came into the store with a shotgun, demanded money and fled with an undisclosed amount, police said.

After handing over the cash, the owner, whose name police did not disclose, went outside to see if he could get a description of the getaway vehicle. The robbers shot him in the leg before fleeing in a gold Toyota, police said.

Police said they were looking for two black men, but the thieves wore ski masks, and no other description was available.

    It's easy to tell the color of someone with a ski mask on: look at the hands.

    Too bad the store owner did not have his concealed carry permit and his .38 to resolve the issues. Let them come try to rob me and see how they like dead.
