Armed Store Owner Foils Robbery

Ohio.com - Store workers take aim at robbers Armed robbers threaten clerk. The store owner appears from the back and fires several shots, and the goblins run like rabbits.

Police grudgingly admit that self-defense and defense of others is legal. They believe you should cooperate.
In most cases, [Police Lt. Rick Edwards] said, store clerks facing an armed robber have the legal right to defend themselves or others if they fear for their safety.

"You have a right to defend yourself, but we're not encouraging anyone to fire shots at people," Edwards said.
Two of three suspects were arrested about 10 minutes after this attempted robbery at a local hospital - one guy had been shot. The 3rd guy is being sought.
