Security camera helps.

BucksLocalNews.com reported on June 3 about an attempted robbery at a pharmacy in Levittown, Pennsylvania. The Falls Township Police Department told BucksLocalNews.com that two men drove up outside the Pennsbury Pharmacy in a minivan, and an armed, masked man exited the vehicle and entered the store. The masked burglar held a shotgun and ran behind the counter to steal from the pharmacist, but the owner saw his approach via the store's security camera. The owner armed himself with a handgun as the suspect entered the store.

Lt. Henry Ward of the Falls Township Police Department told BucksLocalNews.com that the "intruder went into the store and went behind the counter in an attempt to rob the store ... [but the pharmacist] was prepared for the armed intruder.... And he began to shoot, striking the intruder numerous times. The intruder died at the scene." Police were able to corner the minivan with the driver still in the vehicle. The second suspect, the presumed getaway driver, surrendered to police and was taken into custody without incident.
