    Updated article


    http://6abc.com/news/da-killing-of-r...rvice/1369834/

    Pic of the tat at the link.

    Article says he was shot several times at close range by a shotgun, so I don't think we're going to get many details about his appearance unless they release something from the surveillance cameras.

    From the ABC article:
    "There is no thought that we would prosecute the shooter in this case. He was entirely justified in his conduct, and frankly should be commended," Heckler said.

    "From what I can see, he performed a public service in taking out this fella," Heckler continued. "The fella asked for what he got and he got it."


    I love a happy ending!

    Man brought shotgun and zip-ties? Presumably sec cam vid corroborates owner's stmts about warnings, what happened, etc.
    Hard to characterize the owner's actions as anything other than self defense.

    "Ward said the pharmacy owner warned the suspect multiple times, but the man crossed the room and jumped the counter.
    Investigators say the owner fired nearly a dozen shots at the armed man, striking him numerous times.
    Sources say it appears the robbers intended to clear out the pharmacy. The dead man had zip ties by his body, so it appears he was going to tie up the pharmacy owner
    ."

    And the driver of vehicle from which ^ man emerged?
    "He tells authorities his memory is fuzzy about what happened, and he doesn't even know the dead man's name.
    Along with robbery, Goldsboro will also face homicide charges because he allegedly had a role in the crime that led to his co-conspirator's death."

    Maybe he picked up hitchhiking man w shotgun? Yes, snark & sarc, sorry.

    Ok, so we know it is a white male. Did they get the tags on the minivan?

    No, it was the raider who had the shotgun. There's no information there about the weapon used by the pharmacy owner.

    "He has a good camera system, so he actually saw the subject come into the store with the shotgun," said Lt. Ward. "He was prepared for the armed intruder."
    Heh. If the raider had taken half a dozen shortrange blasts from a shotgun, they'd have been scraping what was left of him off the floor, the ceiling, the walls and the counter.

    Okay, I read that backwards. Thanks. (This falls under the heading of "dyslexia.")

    Maybe they were scraping and that's why no info on hair, eye, height have been released.

    The DA's office has identified the robber. http://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/201...town-pharmacy/

    " The Bucks County District Attorney’s Office announced the name of the robbery suspect who was shot and killed by an employee of a Bucks County pharmacy on Friday.

    They identified him as 33-year old Willie A. Bozarth of Sewell, New Jersey. "

    Thx for the update w link http://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/201...town-pharmacy/

    Still a little confusing to me who shot the would-be robber - pharm. owner or pharm. employee. Also confused about June 3 date on ^ link.
    "The passenger got out with a mask on his face and a shot gun in his hands.
    “The owner is in the pharmacy, sees the man coming in with the shotgun and the mask, figures out what’s going on. The uh, employee is armed with a handgun inside the store. Once the perpetrator points the shotgun at the owner, the owner then begins to fire, striking the actor numerous times. He’s deceased inside the store.”
    Police said Bozarth attempted to rob the store, but an employee pulled his own handgun and shot him at close range.
    He was pronounced dead a short time later."
    ETA: ^bbm

    Nevertheless, glad to know the neither was physically harmed. A scary situation to have been in.

    We have a small family run (both husband and wife are pharmacists) and they recently just moved to a larger building. I was inside and see builders put up a glass partition all the way around the pharmacy counter. I asked Bill the husband what is that and he said bulletproof glass. He then said that 2 drugstores were robbed in the last month here in Murfreesboro. I said I haven't heard about it! He said it happens all of the time, and it just isn't reported to newspapers or tv. That's crazy to me. No idea if it's true or not but don't know why he would lie...

    Yeah, lots of violence around pharamacies these days. I think it's mostly for the opioids...
