Waterloo clerk defends self

A Waterloo liquor store clerk defended himself early Wednesday morning by shooting two armed robbers. Unfortunately for the crooks, the clerk was determined to use force and they passed away from their injuries.
WATERLOO - The owner of a Waterloo convenience store where two robbers were killed Wednesday morning said the suspects were frequent customers.

Store clerk Johnny Sanders, 65, shot Robert Maurice Bolden and Antonio McNeal Sproles, both 21, when the two walked into East Fourth Street Liquor brandishing a rifle and a handgun at about 2 a.m. closing time.

For those who think that cooperating with crooks during an armed encounter will win goodwill from the bad guys, the owner's cousin was wounded during a robbery in December 2009. Something that was probably considered by the store clerk.

No charges are expected to be filed against the clerk.
