Last week an armed robber targeted a pharmacy in Pennsylvania. The pharmacy’s owner saw the robber approach via video camera and armed himself, and when the criminal didn’t listen to warning to leave and jumped the counter, the owner cut him down.
Now the District Attorney says that the pharmacy owner won’t face charges, and actually made the world a better place by killing the bad guy.
The pharmacy owner who shot and killed a robber on Friday morning in Levittown, Bucks County, will not face charges – and was even praised by the district attorney.
During a news conference on Friday afternoon, Falls Township Police Lt. Henry Ward said Pennsbury Pharmacy owner Kenneth Lee “had no choice to do what he did. He was protecting himself and his business.”
District Attorney David Heckler wholeheartedly agreed.
“There is no thought that we would prosecute the shooter in this case. He was entirely justified in his conduct, and frankly should be commended,” Heckler said.
“From what I can see, he performed a public service in taking out this fella,” Heckler continued. “The fella asked for what he got and he got it.”
The suspect in the shooting did not have ID on him, and has not yet been identified.
