Man with shotgun lets fly in Crete pharmacy

A pharmacist was injured in the face and hand in the Cretan city of Hania on Saturday when a robber armed with a shotgun opened fire in his store. Police said that the pharmacist, who was not named, was in the shop with an employee on Saturday evening when the robber walked in and demanded cash from the register. The pharmacist approached the armed man in an attempt to disarm him, at which point he fired his shotgun. The shot missed the pharmacist but he was injured by shards of glass that were sent flying when the pellets hit the store’s computer. The gunman fled immediately and the victim was taken to the local hospital where he was treated for his injuries. Police arrested a suspect soon after the incident took place.
