Employees Shoot Armed Robbers at Convenience Store

Authorities say no charges are expected in the shooting deaths of two men shot to death after what police say was an attempt to rob an eastern Pennsylvania convenience store.

Reading police said they responded to Latino's Meat Market at about 11 p.m. Saturday and found one man dead at the scene. The other was taken to Reading Hospital, where he died.

Investigators said three masked men entered the store, one armed with a pistol that he fired and another with a stun gun. Police said the employees pulled weapons and fired, hitting two of the men. The third grabbed cash from the register and fled.

Berks County District Attorney John Adams said the case will most likely be one of self-defense and the shootings justified, but the investigation continues.
