The families of the two masked armed robbers killed in Reading, PA by a concealed carrier are now complaining that they want justice.
Family members of the two masked men shot to death after allegedly robbing a store in Reading spoke out Tuesday.
“It’s not fair,” said Virginia Medina, mother of 24-year-old William Medina, who police said robbed Krick’s Korner store alongside 18-year-old Robert De Carr on Monday.
The two men were shot and killed by a private citizen while leaving the store, and family members want to see charges pressed.
“[William] had no right to lose his life over something that man could have called the police for,” said Medina. “He took the law into his own hands and walked away scot-free.”
“How about if people just start running around here, policing the city on their own? How much worse is it going to get?” said Peter Ratel, Medina’s cousin.
The family members said they are hurt by comments suggesting the alleged robbers were “thugs.”
The entire robbery and shootout was apparently captured by store security cameras, including the shooting. Reading Police and the District Attorney have declined to press charges against the concealed carrier.
