Just before bullets punctured the front window, a man walked into Allied Music on South Byrne Rd. near Heatherdowns, initially inquiring about a job. After a couple of minutes, he left the store, but then quickly returned, pulling out a gun wanting to rob the place.The help came in the form of an armed response. The bad guy - usually referred to as a goblin - was hit in the torso and hand. "The store owner and the clerk were not hurt."
“He holds a gun to the clerks head, forces him to go to the back room to get money,” said Sergeant Phil Toney with the Toledo Police Department. While in the back room, the clerk called out to a second worker the store owner, Eric Bilger, for help.
The would-be-robber ended up across the street, collapsed in a parking lot. He is now in a local hospital.
Self-defense (and defense of others) is a human right.
