The suspect entered the store and approached the clerk to make a purchase, Dillingham said. When the clerk went to open the register, the man leaned over the register and reached at his waist for what the clerk thought was a gun.The guy hasn't been arrested, because he is in the hospital.
The clerk was able to draw a gun, a .357 Magnum, and fire one round at the suspect, Dillingham said. The clerk saw the suspect get into his vehicle and drive south on Hendersonville Road.
No charges are expected against the clerk, who was merely defending himself.
