Vitamin Store Shopkeeper Shoots, Kills Alleged Knife-Wielding Robber

Vitamin Store Shopkeeper Shoots, Kills Alleged Knife-Wielding Robber

On June 23 a Philadelphia Vitamin store shopkeeper shot and killed a knife-wielding robbery suspect.

The 46-year-old shopkeeper was a former Philadelphia police woman.

According to Philly.com, she “was behind the counter of Stan’s Health Foods…just after 5 p.m. when a 47-year-old man walked in and brandished a six-inch hunting knife.” 

Inspector Scott Small said no other employees or customers were in the store at the time. It was just the shopkeeper and “the robbery suspect.”

The suspect “went behind the counter and threw the cash register on the floor to break it.” Then he put his knife against the shopkeeper’s chest, who “drew a gun and fired a shot into the [suspect’s] chest.” The suspect “collapsed on the floor” and “was pronounced dead shortly afterward.”
