Default Store Owner Shoots Would-Be Robber Dead

MT. GILEAD, N.C. (WGHP) -- A woman shot a robber to death after he and another man rammed their car into her convenience store, police said.

According to police, Joseph McRae and Jeffrey Lyles attempted to rob the shop owned by Bouaphan Chanthunom on McLeod Rd. The pair rammed their car through the front of the store and Chanthunom, knocking her to the ground.

After getting up, Chanthunom grabbed her rifle and started firing at the two men. She shot and killed the driver, McCrae, and injured Lyles. She was taken to a hospital for injuries sustained after the building partially collapsed on her.

According to police, no charges will be filed against the store owner because the shooting was in self-defense.
