Man in Harlem Robbery Shooting Will Not Be Charged
Friday, August 14, 2009
New York, NY —
The 72-year-old owner of a Harlem kitchen supply store who shot four suspected robbers, killing two, will not be charged. The New York City Police Department says Charles Augusto Junior had a permit for the shotgun, and he is being treated as a witness. There's a longstanding law in New York that allows a person to use deadly force, if he or she believes deadly force is about to be used against them, and there's no reasonable chance of escape.
