VIDEO: Gas station clerk in Norton Shore fires back

by

NORTON SHORES (WKZO) – A masked thief got more than he bargained for when he walked into the Shell gas station in Norton Shores early Monday with a bag and a gun and demanded cash from the clerk.

The surveillance video shows the robber emptying the cash drawer after he forces he clerk to open the register..

The 24-year-old clerk was asked to go into a back room to get cigarettes for the thief and instead grabbed a semi-automatic handgun and started blasting away.

He reportedly emptied the clip at the fleeing robber.

The suspect jumped into a newer dark colored Chevy and fled. He got away with the cash but no cigarettes and is being sought.

There are a lot of unanswered questions about the gun, the store policy on shooting robbers, the reaction of law enforcement and others that will no doubt be addressed in the coming days.
