AZ: Medical marijuana thief shot: "Larry Miller, 38, tried to rob medical marijuana from a Phoenix man yesterday afternoon, which was a colossal mistake -- the man he tried to rob fatally shot him. ... Miller and another man contacted a guy who'd been advertising himself as a medical marijuana salesman. ... When they got to the back of the apartment complex, Miller pulled out a gun and tried to rob the seller. Big mistake. The seller also had a gun, which he used to fatally shoot Miller."

CA: Wounded suspect faces charges in store robbery: "An 18-year-old man remained hospitalized Sunday with a gunshot wound he suffered while he allegedly tried to hold up a Fruitridge Road convenience store. Davis was injured during a shooting at Hite's Market in the 3900 block of Fruitridge Road, where a man went in just before 6 p.m. Saturday with a gun, demanded money and left with an unknown amount of cash, officials said. Followed outside by two employees, the gunman turned and fired a shot in their direction, Ramos said. One of the employees, who was armed with a shotgun, returned fire and hit the suspect, the sheriff's spokesman said. About 20 minutes later, a man with a gunshot wound showed up at Kaiser Permanente Medical Center on Bruceville Road. Ramos said investigators showed a photo of the robbery suspect to store employees, who confirmed that it was Davis who wound up at the hospital with the gunshot wound."

IL: Suspect is shot by victim in attempted robbery: "One of three would-be robbers was shot by the man he and two of his friends allegedly attempted to rob, and police said he is in serious condition at an area hospital. East St. Louis Detective Orlando Ward said police were called to One Stop Liquors on 25th and St. Clair Avenue at 11:58 p.m. Saturday to investigate a report of "shots fired, man down," Ward said. Police found the 18-year-old on the ground at the scene when they arrived. Ward said the victim and two of his friends saw the unidentified intended victim outside the store he manages and approached him with guns in their hands. "The manager was outside of the business cleaning up. Three suspects approached him with guns and told him he knew what to do," Ward said. "They started shooting at the man and he eventually was able to get to the weapon he had on him and shot back, striking the 18-year-old," Ward said."
