A Marathon gas station clerk in Canton, Ohio found himself in a gunfight with three armed robbers last night.
Despite the odds being stacked against him, it was the would be robbers that ended up on the losing end of the fight.
The clerk struck two of the suspects. All three suspects were able to flee the scene, but the two suspects who were shot were found nearby and taken to an area hospital, where they both died.
The third suspect managed to escape unharmed and is being sought by police. If he is caught, it is likely he will be charged with the murder of his two deceased accomplices.
The clerk was shot once in the leg and is being treated for non life threatening injuries at an area hospital.
Unless there is more to the story than is being reported, the clerk should not face any charges for killing the two men. They have been identified as Antonio Garcia and Ronnie Lawson. Both men were in their early 20’s.
