UT: No charges filed in shooting case: "Iron County Attorney Scott Garrett decided Tuesday to not file charges in a July 25 shooting that occurred in a Wal-Mart parking lot leaving a 26-year-old Cedar City man dead. After reviewing the case, Garrett determined the force used in the incident was justifiable, and that Carl Coltellino acted in self-defense. ... The Coltellino family -- Carl, Tracy and their two young girls -- was traveling through Cedar City on vacation from Florida and decided to spend the night in the Wal-Mart parking lot. ... Stubbs allegedly knocked on the door of the motor home, and, after entering it, wouldn't leave. ... the Coltellinos tried to make Stubbs leave by shouting and shoving him, she said. And, after the 26-year-old Cedar City resident wouldn't leave, Carl pulled out a 12-gauge shotgun, which Stubbs allegedly tried to take from the Florida man. 'The fact that he tried to take the gun from him in his home is a pretty key factor,' Garrett said."

GA: Clerk's question foils one robber: "Columbus police are investigating an attempted armed robbery . which occurred Monday night . said Columbus Police Lt. Mark D. Starling. (It) took place at the Corner Cupboard Chevron, 3857 Milgen Road, Starling said. A man entered the convenience store around 8:40 p.m., pointed a handgun at the clerk and handed him a brown plastic bag in which to put the cash he was demanding. The clerk, Rick Lodhi, refused to comply with the gunman instead saying, 'Are you crazy? The police are on the way. You should go. I'm going to get my gun. I have you on video,' Starling said. The would-be robber turned and ran from the store without taking anything, Starling said."
