Clerk wounds robber who had history of crime

MUNCIE, INDIANA -- Authorities say convicted bandit Willie Brown got more than he bargained for when he held up a southside convenience store recently. As Brown left Zipp's Deli - formerly a Village Pantry at Madison and Willard streets - after a March 15 holdup, a store clerk opened fire with a handgun, police said.

The clerk fired five gunshots, according to court records. At least one of the bullets struck the 44-year-old Brown.

Police found the wounded man in a home along East Second Street a few minutes after the robbery. Money that had allegedly been taken in the holdup was also recovered from the home, authorities said.

Brown was formally charged with armed robbery, a class B felony carrying a standard 10-year prison term, while being treated for his wounds at Ball Memorial Hospital.

The clerk told investigators that Brown had claimed he had a gun in his jacket before demanding money from the store's cash register.

Brown appeared this week in Delaware Circuit Court 1, where Judge Steven Caldemeyer set his trial for July 22.

Caldemeyer and Brown are not strangers.

In September 1991, the judge gave Brown a maximum 20-year prison term after he was convicted of robbing a clerk at a Pizza King restaurant on East Memorial Drive. At the time of that crime, Brown was on probation for a burglary conviction in Missouri.

In 1982, Brown was sentenced to 6 years in prison - also by Caldemeyer - after he was convicted of burglarizing a downtown apartment.

Brown was most recently released from prison last May, according to state Department of Correction records.
