A man attempted to rob a Beer For Less store in Millcreek is identified

Coroner Lyell Cook tells us Patrick Atkins, 21 years old, was pronounced dead at Hamot yesterday just before 9 pm. Cook says he died of a single gun shot wound to the chest, and Cook ruled it a homicide.

The shooting happened just after 8 tonight at the Presque Isle Beer For Less store at 2756 West 12th Street.

Atkins reportedly walked into the store with a small handgun in an apparent attempt to rob the store.

The clerk in the store was armed with a handgun and shot the suspect three times.

Atkins stumbled from the store and collapsed a short distance away.

‘Usually “homicide” implies murder’...

But not neccessarily, you’ve heard of justifiable homicide.

To: Choose Ye This Day

Technical term. Homicide as defined in the UCR and part of state law is the intentional killing of another, without respect to motive or justification. That’s what the death certificate says. There are only five choices - homicide, suicide, accidental, natural or undetermined.

It is further broken down into justifiable and non-justifiable. This will likely be ruled justifiable.

Interesting point, under state law the death certificate of an executed prisoner reads ‘judicial homicide’.

When a person is executed by the state the coroner lists the death as a homicide.

With that in mind I guess the death of a free nation would be called OBAMACIDE!
