On 1/9/13 at approx.1031 a.m. Officers of the Independence Police Dept. were dispatched to 1819 N. Penn Ave. (Uncle Ken's Coin Shop) in reference to a shooting at that location. Upon arrival, Officers learned that a black male subject had entered the shop and robbed the store owner at gunpoint. A struggle ensued and the owner had shot the suspect. The suspect fled the business on foot. Officers located and apprehended the suspect in the alley of the 1700 block North Penn Ave. The black male subject had been shot several times, and was transported to Mercy Hospital in Independence. The subject was later transferred to St. Francis Hospital in Wichita by helicopter. The store owner was also injured during the struggle and was transported to Mercy Hospital in Independence for treatment. The store owner suffered a gunshot wound to the left arm

well regardless if he had a gun that was real or not, as a business owner who has time to check to see if it is real?? Ken was protecting something he worked hard for..and the key word is WORKED, he didn't steal his way to his own business, I have heard bad things about Ken's business practices, accepting stolen items, but that isn't here nor there, he was protecting himself, don't want to get shot dont wave a real or fake gun, you take the chance. Hope that he will be fine!!

Coffewhore: He knows that the robber was black because he read the newsreport that is a few comments above yours. Perhaps before passing judgement you should gather all of the facts.

Did anyone read the reporter? Did it say the owner pursued the robber outside? If so the owner may get in trouble.

Obviously you didn't see the chopper in the sky, or read the newspaper, or have enough sense to do any ivestigating at all before responding. Robber got what was coming to him. You live by the sword, you die by the sword..........

All police and shooters who have been thru the self defense classes are taught to keep on firing until there is no more threat!
Glad that Kenny will be OK....couldn't care less about the thief other than the cost to the taxpayer for the air exac, hospital bills and all the other costs; not to mention putting his sorry self behind bars for many years to come

Prayers to Ken and his family. My son would visit Ken and his pets often. Ken helped him with his collection, often giving him small covers and coins. He is so kind. We support you Ken, get well soon!
