Michigan: Store Clerk Exchanges Gunfire With Robber

Wyoming, Michigan

From April 19, 2008 WOOD channel 8:

WYOMING, Mich (WOOD) - Three armed robberies occured in less than 45 minutes late Thursday night, but police are not officially linking the incidents. Two suspects are in custody for one of the robberies, and are undergoing questioning.

In the last of the three, shots were fired. One of the store clerks exchanged gunfire with the robber. The bullet pierced a metal cabinet wall and struck Hung Ngyn in the leg. Ngyn, 42, is being released from the hospital and is said to be doing well Friday.

Two men, one with a gun, went into Gerk's Party Works on 36th St. around 11:15 p.m. and demanded money. That's when the exchange of gunfire took place. Police aren't sure if anyone was hit.

A police dog tracked the men after they ran from the store, but lost their scent in an area where investigators think they got in a car and took off.
