Pharmacist fires gun to foil robbery in NJ

WINSLOW TWP., N.J. - September 12, 2012 (WPVI) -- Police in Camden County are searching for a would-be bandit who got an unexpected surprise Wednesday afternoon when a pharmacist turned the tables on him.

It happened at about 2:00 p.m. at Jolin's Pharmacy in the 400 block of Sicklerville Road in Winslow Township.

The Camden County Prosecutor's office tells Action News that one man entered the business and demanded a prescription painkiller, Oxycontin, from the owner, pharmacist John Agyemang.

Rather than comply with the demand, prosecutors say, Agyemang pulled out a handgun and fired several times at the man.
