Moron: robbing a pawn show with knife?

A man who attempted to rob a pawn shop was in stable condition Tuesday after being shot by an employee.

The 21-year-old man, armed with a knife, entered Evans Mill Pawn Shop and tried to hold up the store Tuesday morning, Dekalb County police Officer Herschel Grangent said. The man attacked one of the store's employees, who pulled out a gun and shot the man several times, Grangent said.

The employee incurred only minor injuries. Grangent did not immediately release the name of the would-be robber.

Grangent said police are investigating the incident, but it likely was self-defense. Police are using footage from security cameras in the store to help with the investigation. Article here.
