This store clerk puts an end to the criminal career of a

Son of Obama.

How long before an over zealous prosecutor tries to

prosecute the clerk for having a gun?

A Chicago store clerk refused to be a victim yesterday evening.

According to a Chicago Tribune article, 25-year-old Demarcus Brandon tried to rob a cell phone shop using a firearm sometime after 6pm yesterday.

The clerk, also armed, got into a gunfight with the suspect, which resulted in the suspect being shot and killed.

A bystander broke his ankle trying to escape the store. It is unclear if the clerk was injured.

Brandon had a criminal record for violent crime and was just recently paroled after serving only 20 months of a 13 year sentence.

According to the Tribune,

The 13-year sentence stemmed from an incident in Chicago in which Brandon was charged with armed robbery with a firearm, armed violence, aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, gun possession, aggravated fleeing from police, and having either a rifle with a barrel less than 16 inches or shotgun with a barrel less than 18 inches.

That case, and the one that ended with a 3-year sentence, both ended in plea deals, according to court records. He was credited for about 20 months time served and admitted to IDOC custody in September 2008.
