Robbery suspect shot by convenience store manager

BALTIMORE, MARYLAND -- Gas station manager said clerk was being robbed at gunpoint; Police investigating

The manager of a Southeast Baltimore gas station and minimart fatally shot a man yesterday after an apparent armed robbery, telling police he saw the man hold a female clerk at gunpoint on the store video monitor.

The man ran from the convenience store and Citgo station in the 1100 block of Dundalk Ave. and stumbled about 30 feet down the street, police said. He then turned around and fell down in the parking lot of a liquor store next door.

The unidentified man was taken to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, where he died, police spokeswoman Angelique Cook-Hayes said. Police will attempt to identify the man through fingerprints, she said.

The man was carrying a BB gun that resembled a semi-automatic Beretta handgun, she said. The weapon was recovered by police, Cook-Hayes said.

Police said that the gas station manager, Gary Hunt, 63, has not been charged and that a decision would be made by the state's attorney's office after a police investigation is completed.

"We're going to be reviewing the tape in the video monitor," said Sgt. Michael T. Lear of the city's homicide unit.

Officers were called to the gas station at 11:47 a.m., after the shooting occurred. They questioned Hunt at police headquarters.

Hunt -- whose station was robbed Oct. 19 and Oct. 21, Cook-Hayes said -- told investigators that he was in the back of the store and saw what he described as a robbery in progress on the television monitor. He said he watched the screen as a man robbed the female clerk at gunpoint.

Hunt told police that he confronted the man, who was on his way out of the store, and that it appeared the man was reaching toward his waistband. Hunt told police that he then fired one shot from his .38 special revolver, hitting the left side of the man's torso.

Hunt has a license for the gun, Cook-Hayes said.

Jeannie Gordon, whose husband owns Genie's Liquors next to the gas station, said a store employee who saw the shooting victim collapse in the parking lot tried to help him.

Yesterday afternoon, a handwritten sign stating "closed because of shooting" was posted on the minimart door at the gas station.

Another sign on the door read, "The store is subject to monitoring by closed circuit television camera without notification."
