Man With Halloween Mask And A Shotgun Walks Into A Pharmacy, Doesn't Walk Out
A robbery suspect is dead and his accomplice charged with homicide after an attempted robbery Friday was thwarted by a pharmacist armed with a 9mm pistol in Levittown, Pennsylvania.
The suspect was wearing what was described as a frightening Halloween mask and concealing a shotgun covered by a partially opened umbrella. He entered the pharmacy around 10 a.m. as his accomplice sat in a getaway van parked outside the front entrance.
But the owner of Pennsbury Pharmacy, Kenneth Lee, saw the suspect approaching, tripped a silent alarm and yelled out at him, warning him that he was armed and not to enter the store. The suspect did not heed Lee’s warning and continued to advance toward him. When the suspect aimed the shotgun in Lee’s direction, the pharmacist opened fire on the would-be robber, striking him numerous times. Lee was the only one in the pharmacy at the time and was uninjured.
