Quick Thinking Clerk Foils Robber's Plan

A robbery suspect tells police his attempt to hold up a convenience store was an April Fool's joke.

Police say Donnie Dwain Shankle tried to rob the Freeway Beverage Store on Highway 24. He walked up to the counter with a case of beer, pulled out a gun and demanded money.

Witnesses say a store employee pulled out his gun. That's when Shankle quickly told the clerk he was just kidding. Shankle is charged with first degree robbery.
