Crowbar weilding thug against armed teenager
An 18-year-old carryout employee fatally shot one of two intruders who broke into the store on E. 5th Avenue early today, police said.
Eric M. Ford, 28, was pronounced dead inside the Express Market, 900 E. 5th Ave., at 4:37 a.m. It appeared he was shot once in the upper body, homicide Det. Jay Fulton said.
Police identified the other suspected burglar as Lawrence A. Ford, 38. He was arrested about two blocks from the store after fleeing on foot and was charged with aggravated burglary and murder.
"Because the person in custody was participating in a felony in which someone was killed, he can be charged with murder,'' Fulton said.
The two men are related, but police were still trying to confirm their relationship. They shared a South Linden address.
Police declined to identify the store employee who shot Eric Ford.
A release from police said the man fired in self defense, but Fulton said the Franklin County prosecutor's office would review the case to determine whether to pursue charges against the employee.
He said the employee spent the night in the business, which closed at 1 a.m., to clean and restock shelves, and had a bed in the store's office where he slept.
The burglars broke the lock off a security gate, then smashed the front door glass to enter the store.
Fulton said it appears the employee came out of the office and fired a handgun when he was confronted by a masked man with a crow bar behind the store's counter.
