Local Store Owner Shoots at Robber


Joe Wessels got some choice quotes from the store owner on 9th and Elm Streets. I know that this guy is pretty ornery. I have seen him tell people to "get out of my store. I don't want to sell anything to you". So I am not too suprised that he pulled out a gun shot at a robber.
Nassar said he ran after the suspect and into the street and got off five shots before the gun jammed.

"I don't know how I missed him," said the Jerusalem native, who has been a United States citizen for more than 40 years. "I do very good on the pistol. I don't know why. I meant to kill him. That's what I told the police and the FBI. I meant to kill him."
The store - a block from Cincinnati City Hall and across the street from the Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy's Otto Armleder Memorial Education Center - is named after his two oldest sons, Nizar, 32, and Mohammed, 29. Mohammed served four years in the United States Marine Corps, Wade Nassar said.

Ringing up merchandise at the register wearing a dark suit, white shirt and dark patterned tie - he said he dresses that way every day to look professional - he knows many of his customers by their first name and regularly inquires about their lives.
"Go look for a job and don't come and stick me up," he said. "Kill or get killed. That's how it is."

I want this man prosecuted. It is NOT okay to run down the street shooting a gun.
