Criminal Brings Knife to Gun Fight

"A 29-year-old man is dead after an employee at a West Side bakery shot the man as he attempted to rob the business, police said Wednesday.

Robert Adame walked into the establishment at the 1300 block of Saltillo brandishing a knife, police said. A male worker shot Adame, who fled the scene and was found at the 1500 block of Saltillo. He was taken to University Hospital in critical condition, where he later died, police said.

Police said they are not planning to charge the employee." [link]

Chalk another one up for law abiding citizens using guns for protection and as a crime deterrent.
