Pharmacy Manager Shoots Would-Be Robbers

Police said they do not expect to charge a pharmacy manager who shot and killed a robbery suspect during a violent holdup on Friday, NBC 10 reported.

Two would-be robbers entered a pharmacy on West Oak Lane, police said. Witnesses said both had guns and threatened to kill workers if they didn't hand over money and drugs.

The pharmacy manager pulled out his own gun and fired off more than a dozen shots, authorities said. One suspect was killed. The other was wounded and got away.

The district attorney will review the case, authorities said.
