Cashier shoots burglar in self-defense

Originally ran here as:
"Cashier shoots burglar at liquor store, police say"

By Bob Ussery
Staff writer/The Times-Picayune

An unarmed man who allegedly broke into a Central City liquor store was shot twice by a cashier Thursday, New Orleans police said.

The man, whose identity was withheld, was in fair condition at Charity Hospital, police spokesman Joe Narcisse said. He appeared to be in his late teens.

One of the .38-caliber bullets struck him in the right shoulder, the other in the right side of the jaw, police said.

Police would not identify the clerk at the W and M package liquor store, 3140 Jackson Ave., between South Prieur Street and Seminole Lane.

The store does not allow customers in the store, and does business through a window.

The suspect broke in through a rear, second-floor window, Narcisse said. He said the man then made a hole in the floor so he could descend to the store, on the first floor.

The cashier heard noises about 7:40 p.m. and screamed for the man to stop.

Police said the man was shot as he lowered himself from the hole in the ceiling.

The man, who was unarmed, will be booked with burglary of a business, Narcisse said.

The woman, who was distraught afterward, was not charged in the shooting, police said.

Investigators said they believe the shooting was justified, but are referring the case to the district attorney's office for review.
