LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS -- A Little Rock restaurant owner shot and killed a man who was trying to rob him Friday night.

Police say the owner of Sim's Bar-B-Que in Little Rock was working the cash register when two armed gunmen stormed in demanding money.

It happened around eight o-clock during the restaurant's dinner rush. According to investigators, the owner pulled a gun out from behind the counter but one of the robbers shot at him first, hitting him in the hand. The owner then shot that man in the chest and the other suspect in the back.

One man died at the scene, the other suspect was captured about ten minutes later.

LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS -- An unusual murder case has prosecutors invoking a rarely used state law. It stems from a fatal robbery that happened Friday night at Sims Bar-B-Que in Little Rock.

Police are still waiting for autopsy results from the medical examiner to determine which bullet led to the death of 20-year-old Willie Tully. Detectives say Friday night, Tully and 17-year-old Otis Brewer went into the restaurant to rob it.

In the process the owner, Ron Settlers, shot the two robbers, killing Tully. Investigators say they're not certain who fired the fatal shot. But, prosecutors have filed charges against 17-year-old Brewer for capital murder and aggravated robbery.

They say he's responsible, whether or not his shot killed Tully.

Pulaski County Prosecutor, Larry Jegley, tells KARK News 4 "if you put into effect a cause of events that results in someone hurt or killed then you should be held liable for your actions." Jegley says the intent is to make sure there are consequences for such violent actions.

[The American Colonies were] all democratic governments, where the power is in the hands of the people and where there is not the least difficulty or jealousy about putting arms into the hands of every man in the country. [European countries should not] be ignorant of the strength and the force of such a form of government and how strenuously and almost wonderfully people living under one have sometimes exerted themselves in defence of their rights and liberties and how fatally it has ended with many a man and many a state who have entered into quarrels, wars and contests with them.
