Police say a suspected robber was shot and killed after exchanging gunfire with two clerks at Sunny Food Mart on Walkup Avenue late Thursday.
I always love the "suspected" part. Especially in light of this quote from later in the article:
"...the robber entered the store, pulled out a gun and demanded money."
Sounds like the classical definition of "robber" to me.
Wails of "He was such a good boy! They didn't have to shoot him!" in 3, 2, 1....
