Robber shot to death by store clerk

Excerpts below, from full story originally published here by Arizona Republic, entitled:
Robbery suspect shot to death by 7-Eleven clerk in Glendale"
April 11, 2001 10:15:00

A robbery suspect was fatally shot by a convenience-store clerk today following a holdup at a 7-Eleven in Glendale.

Johnny Ortiz, 32, of Glendale, suffered a head wound and died about an hour later at St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center, said Officer Matthew Brown, a Glendale police spokesman.

Details are sketchy, but Brown said the shooting followed an attempted robbery shortly before 6 a.m. at 7-Eleven, 6010 W. Bethany Home Road.

Brown offered this account:

Ortiz entered the store brandishing a handgun and confronted the clerk, Thomas Yabbara, 28, of Glendale. The two briefly scuffled inside the store, then Ortiz fled on foot to a dirt field north of the business.

Yabbara, who was armed with a handgun and was worried about the safety of people outside the store, followed the bandit to the open area.

Witnesses told police that Ortiz turned toward Yabbara and aimed his handgun at the clerk.

Yabbara then fired twice at Ortiz, inflicting a single head wound.

Brown said Ortiz is believed to match the description of a robber who committed two or three other holdups during the night, including one 15 minutes before the Glendale heist.

To trust arms in the hands of the people at large has, in Europe, been be an experiment fraught only with danger. Here by a long trial it has been proved to be perfectly harmless...If the government be equitable; if it be reasonable in its exactions; if proper attention be paid to the education of children in knowledge and religion, few men will be disposed to use arms, unless for their amusement, and for the defence of themselves and their country. Timothy Dwight, Travels in New England and New York [London 1823]
