Armed robber family 'outraged' that he was shot dead while he was robbing

WHIOTV reports:

In a 911 call, a man told dispatchers that a man with a gun attempted to rob him at the store.

“He pointed a gun at me,” the caller said. “I had a firearm on me. I pulled my firearm and I shot him in self defense.”

The caller also said that the suspect “shot back,” but it is not clear how many shots were fired during the incident.

Police confirmed that the store clerk who shot Roosevelt Rappley, was legally allowed to possess a firearm.
