    Savannah -- According to Savannah-Chatham police, about 9:00 Wednesday night, a man pulled a gun on the owner of Diva Depot, a store next to the Timesaver on Oglethorpe Avenue, downtown.

    Officers say the man came into the business, pulled out a gun and threatened the owner, but the owner then pulled out his own gun and shot the suspect twice.

    The suspect ran through Yamacraw Village and then found someone to take him to Memorial Health. Police say they later learned the store owner had caught the girlfriend of the shooting victim shoplifting in his store earlier in the day.

    They say she went to her boyfriend, who then went to the store to confront the owner.

    Police say he will be charged when he is released from the hospital.

    I am not sure why, but I find this story humorous.

    Well nobody said they had a brain! It is quite funny. Had the same type of thing happen when I was working in retail. We busted a booster and the "pimp looking" boss shows up yelling at us. The of course tries to fight us resulting in him in cuffs and a free trip to jail!
