Waukegan, Illinois Bakery Clerk shoots robber


It may be a new trend around town. On Monday July 6, we had yet another store clerk use a handgun to defend against a bad-guy; I believe this is the third defense shooting this year. I cut the following from the online news report.

Around 7:50 p.m., the clerk at a bakery on the 700 block of Yeoman Street told police a man entered the store, asked for a pen and paper and proceeded to write a note that stated "give me the money I have a gun.” The suspect reportedly held his hand under his shirt to indicate a weapon

Reports state the clerk handed over a small amount of money and the suspect began backing away, and "the store clerk, fearing for his safety, pulled a .38 caliber handgun and shot at (the suspect)," who then fled on foot.

Officers responding to the scene reportedly were directed by witnesses to a residence on the 1400 block of Ridgeland Avenue, where the suspect was found with a gunshot wound to the chest.

Arrested and charged with aggravated robbery was Demitrius Newbill, 29, of the 500 block of Poplar Street. Newbill was transferred to Vista East Medical Center, where he reportedly was held overnight Monday for observation. Police state he would be remanded to Lake County Jail upon being released from the hospital.
