Deputy Mistakenly Fires at Robbery Victim

Associated Press

October 04, 2010

WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy fired on and missed a man he believed was a robbery suspect but turned out to be the liquor store clerk who had been held up.

Deputy Lilian Peck says deputies received a call early Saturday of a robbery by two armed suspects at the store in West Hollywood, and one deputy fired after seeing a man who matched the suspect’s description leaving the store who appeared to be holding a gun.

Peck said in a statement that the man was detained and determined not to be a suspect.

She says the clerk was not hit.

The gunfire broke windows across the street from the liquor store.

No suspects had been arrested Sunday night.

    The clerk should not have left the store, especially carrying a gun. Protect yourself and do what is necessary inside the store and let the police do the chasing outside of the store...
