Video of a Dayton, Ohio family who is outraged that their sibling was shot dead by a store clerk while attempting an armed robbery has been blasted all over social media.
The man entered a Dollar General store and pointed a handgun at the clerk on Wednesday evening. The robber demanded money, then the clerk pulled out a gun and shot the robber in self-defense. The Dollar General employee was allowed to have a gun, so he used it to protect himself. According to Lt. Jason Hall, he was on private property at his place of employment, so the employee didn’t need a CCW.
The store has already been robbed four times this year.
After the man attempting to rob the store was shot, he tried to run out of the store but collapsed at the front doors.
The family is “furious” and say the clerk “shouldn’t have had a gun.”
“That was wrong for that clerk to shoot my brother.”

It turns out that the robber may have been involved in other robberies:
“The deceased did have a pending weapons charge that was waiting to move forward. Right now, we are looking into the possibility of this individual may have been involved in several other commercial robberies.”
