Grocery Store Clerk Shoots Back At Robber in Winston-Salem

Winston-Salem, North Carolina

From the October 4, 2008 Winston-Salem Journal:

A store clerk and a robber shot at each other during an attempted robbery Thursday night, Winston-Salem police said yesterday.

Police said that the store clerk, Soon Kwon, was outside the Liberty Street Grocery on Old Rural Hall Road about 8:40 p.m. when a man came up and pointed a gun at him. The two went inside, and, as Kwon was walking behind the counter to get money, he pushed the store's alarm and grabbed a gun.

The robber shot at Kwon, missing him, and Kwon shot back, police said. It's not clear whether Kwon's shot hit the robber.
