No charges in fatal shooting at Kansas cellphone store

A store clerk in a cell phone store shot and killed a armed thug trying to rob the store. The prosecutors decided to not charge him as it was self defense as far as they are concerned.

My hat is off to the store clerk and I wish him all the best with this incident.

I would say that this is likely.

Insurance companies generally take a pretty dim view of armed employees in a retail environment. Even if management is OK with it, the insurance company generally rules in things like this.

Many of these cell phone stores are privately owned. ma and pop kind of stores. But the robbers sure love to target them though. Hugely popular to rob or steal from a little cell phone store.

Poor guy. Having just gone through a gun fight ... and, likely, now a job search. Better by a long shot, though, than leaving his family bereft.

Seems kind of strange to try armed robbery of a *’phone store*, doesn’t it? Not where I’d expect lots of cash customers. Planning to steal ‘phones? Overland park, is ... well ... -was- familiar territory. A bunch of cousins grew up in JO cty, KS, and I chauffeured through KCKS & KCMO in the ‘70s. Back then it was the MO side that felt dicey. This story makes wonder how the K.C. area has changed in 40yrs.

Well, I'm glad the guy was able to defend himself and whatever other employee was with him in the store...sad state of affairs that he has to lose his job over it.

"armed with a handgun and jumping over the counter"

He got what he had coming. Do you just chance he isn't going to kill you? No.

Repeat offender too:
"The Missouri Department of Corrections shows that Brim was out of prison on parole and had faced previous charges of possession of a firearm and resisting arrest."

Probably just an honest mistake by the armed robber, after all, it was a "boost" mobile.

Wait for ACLU & civil suits...as they say "no mother should fear for their son's life engaging in petty armed-robbery"...

Yes it is a real shame, so many small stores left to rob; but I took the liberty of correcting your post in italic bold!

No need to thank me!
