Wounded Fulton grocer shoots robbery suspect

Wednesday, July 5, 2000
by Beth Warren - Staff

A south Fulton County grocery store owner and an 18-year-old suspect were shot Tuesday during a robbery, while three or four other suspects remained on the run Tuesday night, police said.

Khalid Balala, whose family owns the Hill's Grocery store at 3754 Cascade Road, was forced to the floor at gunpoint by three suspects and shot in the arm about 4 p.m., said Fulton County police Detective Glenn Martin. Balala, still sprawled on the floor, reached for his own handgun and returned fire, Martin said.

One of the suspects was struck in the buttocks and was later arrested, police said. Police believe his name is John Henry Glass III, but he also gave the name of Montavious P. Smith, Martin said.

Both Balala and Glass were taken to Grady Memorial Hospital for treatment for non-life threatening injuries.

Glass, who is charged with aggravated assault and armed robbery, is a Douglass High School student living in Bankhead Court Apartments, Martin said.

Glass gave police a street name of one accomplice, Martin said, but investigators believe another suspect entered the grocery with them and that one or two additional suspects may have been positioned outside the store during the robbery.

Detectives do not plan to charge Balala, who underwent surgery Tuesday to remove bullet fragments from his arm. The handgun used to shoot Balala had not been recovered Tuesday night.

Besides the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation, the existence of subordinate governments, to which the people are attached, and by which the militia officers are appointed, forms a barrier against the enterprises of ambition, more insurmountable than any which a simple government of any form can admit of. Notwithstanding the military establishments in the several kingdoms of Europe, which are carried as far as the public resources will bear, the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.
