CINCINNATI -- A corner store clerk shot and killed a would-be robber Wednesday night in South Fairmount, according to Cincinnati police Capt. Dennis Swingley.
Police received reports of a shooting around 9:30 p.m. at Sam’s Quick Market at 1932 Harrison Ave., Swingley said. When they arrived, employees said the store had been the scene of an attempted robbery and a co-worker had shot the suspect.
The suspect was taken to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead. Police later identified him as 34-year-old Hananiah Israel.
The homicide unit is now investigating the circumstances of Israel's death.
