Convenience store owner fights off armed robbers, WHIO, Dayton, Ohio 09/15/13, 09/16/
Two men, at least one of whom was armed with a gun, entered the 3rd Base Drive Thru convenience store in Dayton, Ohio and attempted to rob the store. Store owner Thomas Mauro was in an office in the rear of the store when he spotted the pair on a surveillance feed. Mauro retrieved a gun and fired at the criminals, striking one in the chest and causing both to flee. The wounded robber only made it to the restaurant next door before collapsing. When interviewed by a local media outlet, Dayton Police Lieutenant Donald Burden stated that it is unlikely the store owner will face charges.
