Akron - Robber shoots/kills customer that pepper sprayed him

Robber is a repeat offender released from prison in March.
Taking on someone armed with a firearm when you have only pepper spray, is probably not the best course of action.

Police said Henderson brandished a gun about 4 p.m. and demanded money from the store clerk. The clerk handed it over and Henderson ran outside, police said.

Dzatko, a customer, saw the robbery and encountered Henderson in the parking lot, police said. Dzatko sprayed him with pepper spray and Henderson shot him, police said. Henderson ran east through Parklane Manor Apartments.

Dzatko was pronounced dead at Akron City Hospital from a gunshot wound to the torso,

It's bad enough that he used pepper spray, but why intervene in that situation at all? The robber was already outside with the store's money. There was no risk to the employee at that point. If I would've been there, I wouldn't have physically intervened at that point.

Hmm, an armed robber trying to get away, stoked on adrenaline and half-panicked, getting pepper sprayed by a moron in his path to freedom. What could possibly go wrong? :roll:
