    Police: Gun store clerk shoots robber
    March 4, 2009 6:35 PM |

    Waukegan police said a clerk at a guns-and-ammunition store appears to have shot a man who was trying to rob the establishment this afternoon.

    Officers responded at about 1:45 p.m. to Mike Schrank's Smoke 'N Gun, 2010 Washington St., to a call of a person shot, according to a police news release.

    There they found a man who had been shot twice in the chest and once in the leg, and a shop clerk who had a gun trained on him, the statement said.

    Witnesses told investigators that the injured man went behind the counter and argued with the clerk.

    The confrontation turned physical and the clerk pulled a handgun and shot the other man, witnesses said. During the struggle, the clerk also shot himself in the hand accidentally.

    The man was taken first to Vista West Medical Center in Waukegan, then to Advocated Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge, where he was taken into surgery. The clerk was taken another local hospital for treatment, police said.

    Police believe the man was trying to rob the store, the statement said.

    In October a 20-year-old man who held up a Waukegan grocery with a pellet gun was shot and killed by a clerk who fired at him after the robbery, as he pedaled from the scene on a bicycle. A Lake County grand jury later declined to indict the store clerk in the killing.

    Stupidity, stupidity and more stupidity. Almost every gun shoppe I have been in the guys behind the counter were armed. That is nearly as bright as robbing a drive through window at a bank.

    Thats right up there with going into a restaurant or bar that the cops frequent and trying something. I saw that on Walker Texas Ranger one time. The guy had about 50+ guns pulled on him at the same time... :D:D:D:D

    Ok...you asked for it...:D:D:D:D

    THE TOP TEN CHUCK NORRIS FACTS:
    01
    Chuck Norris' tears cure cancer. Too bad he has never cried.
    02
    Chuck Norris counted to infinity - twice.
    03
    Chuck Norris does not hunt because the word hunting infers the probability of failure. Chuck Norris goes killing.
    04
    If you can see Chuck Norris, he can see you. If you can't see Chuck Norris you may be only seconds away from death.
    05
    Chuck Norris sold his soul to the devil for his rugged good looks and unparalleled martial arts ability. Shortly after the transaction was finalized, Chuck roundhouse kicked the devil in the face and took his soul back. The devil, who appreciates irony, couldn't stay mad and admitted he should have seen it coming. They now play poker every second Wednesday of the month.
    06
    When the Boogeyman goes to sleep every night he checks his closet for Chuck Norris.
    07
    Chuck Norris built a time machine and went back in time to stop the JFK assassination. As Oswald shot, Chuck Norris met all three bullets with his beard, deflecting them. JFK's head exploded out of sheer amazement.
    08
    Chuck Norris has already been to Mars; that's why there are no signs of life there.
    09
    They once made a Chuck Norris toilet paper, but it wouldn't take sh*t from anybody.
    10
    A blind man once stepped on Chuck Norris' shoe. Chuck replied, "Don't you know who I am? I'm Chuck Norris!" The mere mention of his name cured this man blindness. Sadly the first, last, and only thing this man ever saw, was a fatal roundhouse delivered by Chuck Norris.

    Norrisisms are on the walls of EVERY Port-a-john in the Iraq Theater of Operations. I very seriously doubt you can show me a new one.
