WBAL ^ | December 27, 2010

LAUREL, Md. -- A would-be robber shot by an Anne Arundel County property/gas station owner early Tuesday has died from his injuries. Anne Arundel County police spokesman Justin Mulcahy said a 29-year-old man entered the store portion of a gas station in the 3400 block of Laurel Fort Meade Road at about 3:30 a.m. The building included a Dunkin' Donuts store along with a Baskin-Robbins.

"The suspect entered the store in the early-morning hours and announced a robbery. He implied that he had a weapon," Mulcahy said. "At a certain point the suspect and the 48-year-old property owner got into some sort of altercation, some struggle if you will, which resulted in the suspect being shot."

No other injuries have been reported. The decedent's identity was not immediately released, pending family notification, and the property owner's name was not released police did not charge him as of Tuesday afternoon.

"Once officers got on scene, they located an adult male suffering from an apparent gunshot wound to the lower extremity. That victim was transported to Prince George's Shock Trauma. He was pronounced deceased there at the hospital," Mulcahy said.

...WBAL-TV 11 News reporter Rob Roblin said authorities are investigating whether security cameras at the store recorded the incident. The case remained under investigation Tuesday afternoon. The businesses reopened at about 1 p.m.

The amazing thing about this is that it occurred in Maryland, yet the business owner had a gun. Even better if he wrestled the gun away from the bad guy.

Good point.

The perp probably bled out because the cops had to wait for their coffee and donuts to go.

Boston Creme or jelly filled? Did he get to take a bite as a last meal? Is he now having second thoughts about pulling a 3:30AM holdup, or an anytime holdup? Is the world a better place minus this perp? You betcha.

The poor owner, at a minim it will be a manslaughter charge. Never shoot a criminal in Maryland.

The big hole was a dead giveaway.

Never bring an implied weapon to a gunfight.

"....suffering from an apparent gunshot wound to the lower extremity."

Would someone with a medical background please explain to me exactly where the "lower extremity" is located?

If it's where I think it is, I think death would be a merciful ending. /Sarc

Wasn't this in the old days called a "gutshot"?

Lower extremity? Could be a large caliber round through the femoral artery in the thigh. Bleed out from that one real quick...

I think extremities are limbs, but he would hardly die from a shot to the leg, unless the talented shooter happened to hit an artery. Perhaps it was a shot to the groin.

It’s possible the owner wrestled the gun from the robber, or at least was able to discharge it in the bad guys direction.

It does not say the owner had a gun, it said they struggled.

I suspect the perp shot “hisself” in the “lower abdomen” which is reporter jargon for a shot to the nuts and lower unit. He was trying to extricate his heater from his pants when it went of and made him a new man. If he had survived at least he would have still been able to be in Obama’s army sans pecker and stuff.

Whatever it made him, it wasn't a man.

>>>...yet the business owner had a gun.<<<

Story doesn't say that. It said only that robber implied he had a weapon.

Maybe the good guy took the gun away from the bad guy or it went off during a struggle.

This other thread says he was shot in the parking lot. :-)

So many perps are shot there, or in the back alley. I never see these target zones while at the range. Who do I call?
