Store owner survives being shot in head?

A 40-year-old East St. Louis store owner is conscious and talking after being shot in the head during a robbery early Monday.

Police say three men wearing masks went into the man's store and shot him, and then ordered him to open the cash register. When the man said he couldn't open the register because he couldn't get up, the men allegedly hit him with a weapon and tried to open the register themselves.

When they couldn't get it open, police say they took a large amount of liquor and then fled.

The store owner was found by customers. Police say he is in serious condition at an area hospital. Article here.
