Police: Customer fatally shoots armed robber in Georgia dollar store

LITHONIA, Ga. (AP) Police say a customer has fatally shot an armed man trying to rob a dollar store near Atlanta.

Police in suburban DeKalb County tell news outlets the shooting happened Tuesday morning at a Family Dollar near Lithonia.

County police spokesman Sgt. J.D. Spencer says a man walked into the
store, pulled out a gun and demanded cash from two employees. Spencer
says a customer shot the armed man as one employee was handing over
money. Four or five customers were inside the store at the time.

Police say charges are not expected to be brought against the customer.

Authorities haven't identified the customer or the man who was killed.
