According to police, 23-year-old Robert Christopher Young entered the convenience store, brandished a handgun and demanded money from the two clerks, brothers Sophia and Sopea Pich. Gunfire was exchanged between Young and Sopea Pich.The would-be robber was found a few blocks away and died at a local hospital.
"He was yelling give me the money, give me the money," said Sopea Pich. "I didn't have time to think, and I shot him."
The police don't think anything is wrong, but decisions about charges are up to the DA.
Still, self-defense is a human right.
