Two individuals attempted to rob a liquor store shortly before 6:45 p.m. one Monday. When the two intruders began to assault one of the employees, another store worker, who has a permit to carry, confronted the robbers. He fired his gun, striking one of the assailants. Police transported the wounded criminal to a hospital where he later died. Officers are still pursuing leads on the second robber. The injured store employee was taken to a hospital for treatment.

March 1961
An ex-convict entered a St. Louis dry goods store, struck owner Clarence E. Skala on the head with a brick-filled sack, and bound and gagged him. After looting the store, the felon left and Skala freed himself. Picking up his cal. .25 pistol, Skala ran to the door where he met the bandit who had stopped his flight and returned to the store. Skala fired twice; the bandit dropped his loot and fled with a bullet in his stomach. Dogs from the canine corps soon traced the wounded man. (St. Louis Post-Dispatch, St. Louis, MO)
