OH:Hamilton store owner talks about robbery, shooting


A store owner shot and killed a man attempting to rob his Main Street business Saturday.

Hamilton police officers responded to Mazagan Urban Ware, 201 Main St., at 8:34 p.m. on a report of a robbery attempt that ended when the owner shot the suspect, according to a news release from the Hamilton Police Department. When police and fire units arrived at the clothing store, they found the robbery suspect lying outside the store with an apparent gunshot wound, the news release said.

The suspect, Jeremy Scott Irvin, 26, of Fairfield, was transported to Fort Hamilton Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. No charges are pending against the store owner, Smail Gueddari, who opened Mazagan Urban Ware in 2011.

“Anybody in my place would have done what I do,” Gueddari said on Monday.
