Would-be robber shot with his own gun after struggle
Police say a man who tried to rob a Savannah convenience store ended up being shot with his own gun after a clerk refused to hand over any money without a fight.
According to police, the clerk managed to wrestle away one of the 19-year-old’s two guns and shoot him in the leg Thursday afternoon. The suspect dropped the other gun, which wasn’t loaded, as he ran away.
Police initially couldn’t find the man, but officials say he turned up later in the day at Memorial University Medical Center.
He had not been charged as of Thursday evening, and police didn’t immediately identify him because investigators were still interviewing witnesses.
