Another catastrophic failure in the victim selection process

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....

Don't forget that he was probably an "honor student & athlete" as well.
