Pharmacist uses gun to prevent theft of drugs
WINSLOW TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) -- A pharmacist pulled out a handgun and fired several shots at a would-be robber as he chased him from his store, authorities said. It was not known whether any of the shots hit the holdup man, who had demanded narcotic painkillers.
"I'm no hero, but I thought, 'Either him or I,'" John Agyemang, who opened Jolin's Pharmacy only three months ago, told WPVI-TV in Philadelphia.
In a brief interview with the Associated Press, the pharmacist, busy Thursday waiting on customers, said he had spotted a gun on the robber. . . .
"He could have shot me dead and nobody would have known because it's not a busy area," he told KYW-TV in Philadelphia.The robber demanded OxyContin and other painkillers, the pharmacist said. . . . .
