Robbers Pose as Customers

District Attorney Robert Schwarz refused to charge an Albuquerque, New Mexico, Dunkin’ Donuts employee with any wrongdoing after the armed store clerk killed one of two would be robbers. The two suspects had entered the store posing as customers. When the clerk turned to get their donuts they drew guns and demanded cash. The clerk refused. One bandit fired a single shot at the clerk, barely missing his head, and the other bandit jumped over the counter and attempted to shoot the employee, but his gun jammed. By then, the clerk had retrieved his own handgun and returned fire, fatally injuring the suspect who had jumped the counter. The dead crook’s accomplice fled the building.
