Robber shot by Marrero sandwich shop owner was ex-employee, authorities say

The 18-year-old suspect shot during the botched robbery of a Marrero sandwich shop was a former employee, according to a Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office arrest report. Robert McClure, of Marrero, was still in critical condition Monday after he was shot multiple times while allegedly trying to hold up Chateau Orleans Po Boy Shop at 2324 Barataria Blvd. on Saturday night.

An unidentified 38-year-old employee was also wounded by gunfire during the robbery. He was shot in the arms and expected to recover.

Sheriff's Office investigators said McClure donned a mask and dark-colored clothing, armed himself with a 20-gauge shotgun and entered his former place of employment through a back door around 11:24 p.m. He spotted the employee, who had been cleaning up, and ordered him to the front of the business, authorities have said.

But the store's owner overheard the robber's commands and grabbed a semi-automatic pistol. When McClure turned to face the store owner, the employee reached for the shotgun. As the two struggled for the weapon, the store's owner opened fire, striking McClure several times, authorities said.

McClure ran out the back door. Deputies later found him just behind the shop near the intersection of Ehret Road and Champagne Street. Detectives later determined the shotgun had been reported stolen from a Jefferson Parish residence in 2011, the arrest report said.

Once released from the hospital, McClure will be booked with attempted armed robbery, illegal possession of stolen firearms and aggravated assault. Stay with NOLA.com for more information as it becomes available.

I generally like Micheal Hunter, but I had to laugh at another story posted a little earlier today at nola.com.

Suspect booked with attempted murder in Valentine's Day River Ridge shooting

Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office investigators have arrested a Kenner man in the attempted murder of a man in River Ridge on Valentine's Day morning.

Ivey is accused of taking part in the shooting of an unidentified 27-year-old man at Newton and South Cumberland streets in River Ridge on Feb. 14. The victim, who is from Kenner, was shot just after 9 a.m., in the stomach, face and head, according to an incident report.

The victim was taken to LSU Interim Public Hospital in New Orleans where he was expected to survive. Investigators found 1.5 grams of crack cocaine and a revolver on the victim, authorities have said.


Emphasis mine!

My guess after reading this story is that he had no ID on him and has been in a coma since the shooting and is now expected not to survive?

Wish we had a real newspaper in NOLA.

They should’ve stayed in Kenner. Kenner Seafood has the best poboys around. (and the Kenner cops don’t mess around)

Actually there is a republican, Bill Cassidy, currently a congressman from Louisiana, who will be challenging Mary Landrieu in the upcoming elections.

And they said ‘No one listens to joebama’.

Notice the rise in use of shotguns so it looks like some people are following the erstwhile advice of joebama

Just like gumbo, the best is home made.

Funny story about where I get my boiled crawfish sometimes.

In Boutte, they got a place called Hebert’s Seafood. When I first moved down here in the early 70’s I used to do a lot of fishing and bought my market bait from Hebert’s. I was considered a Yankee cause anyone from North of I-10 was considered a Yankee, and I was from way North of I-10. Well, I was very respectful of the locals and I made it a point to learn the local dialect.

Early one morning I was there buying some shrimps for the days fishing, and the old lady (God rest her soul) was working. I made the mistake of calling her Mrs. “A bear”. She got all red in the face and said very sternly, “It’s “He Bert”, I’m German. I ain’t no coonass.

Damn, I love Louisiana.

Well, I apologize all over da place and after dat, I knewed she forgive me cause she youst to trow some of dem rock shrimps on da side for me for when I come in to get me some baits, an erybody know, dem redfish can’t resist dem tings.

****** “Perhaps the best in the West Bank” *******

Cross the River “Little Arabi Store” ... it is worth the drive.

Bet that 20 of the 30 extra pounds I carry can be directly connected to the most awesome sandwiches ever consumed by mankind ... (my mouth is watering) all built and produced by Little Arabi Store...

TT
