EADING, Pa. - November 4, 2013 (WPVI) -- Authorities in Berks County say two robbery suspects were shot and killed by a concerned citizen outside a Reading convenience store.

"He was very brave, very brave. He could have ran away, he chose not to," Berks County District Attorney John Adams said.

It was just after 2:00 p.m. when shots rang out outside Krick's Korner Market on the 1600 block of North 9th Street.

Adams says cameras were rolling as the men, donning masks and armed with guns, entered the store and terrorized employees, pointing their weapons and making demands.

Could it be.....er....nah, never mind.

Works for me. I hope there is no retaliation against the citizen who stopped them.

The two criminals were Robert Decarr, 19 and William Adina, 21 (William leaves behind 4 children).

A friend of Adina's, Frank Concepcion, says that the shootings were unjustified.

The DA disagrees with Frank.

They show a friend of one of the robbers, who stated his deceased friend was a hard working person. There are also a couple of “memorials” for the robbers.

The man who shot the robbers won’t be charged. Who else wasn’t initially charged for shooting a member of the protected class?

Armed robbery is apparently hard work (and risky too)

Two shots two perps dead. Economical use of resources.

Just to show you how bad this area is, there are candles where the thugs were shot. If I was the stoe owner (who was robbed), I would throw them in the trash.

Effing scumbags.

Friends and family of the dead suspects ... tried to portray the two as good hard working men.
What, no mention of the decedents' rap-artist aspirations or GED status?

The sainted Sean Bell was an “out of work electrician.”

Story says "The suspects were both shot in the chest and died at the scene. "

Sounds like gun control to me...

Second shot to center of mass and shot to the head not necessary.. result of adequate range time, I bet.
