Fearful of the recent Hot Stop market robbery/homicide, the clerk retrieved a handgun and fired, which scared the would-be robbers away. As he went outside to see if he could determine a get away vehicle or direction the robbers fled, one of them turned towards him and pointed a gun in his direction.

At the conclusion of the initial investigation, the clerk was released without charges. Upon completion of the full investigation, it will be decided whether to submit the case to the DA's office for review.
