A Bassfield convenience store owner killed an alleged robber, shooting him at least 11 times, WDAM reported.
Officials say the owner was also wounded during the incident. He was taken to Forrest General Hospital for surgery and is expected to recover.

The alleged robber LeRobert John of Bassfield was pronounced dead at the scene.

According to investigators, a gunman entered a Get and Go convenience store Monday morning in Jefferson Davis County on Mississippi 42 and demanded money.
The armed robber shot the store owner in the leg before all the money had been taken. The gunman exited the store but returned to take the rest of the cash. By that time the owner had a 9mm handgun. When the gunman approached, the owner shot the robber at least 11 times.

Jefferson David County Coroner Jimmy Slater said there were 11 to 13 gunshot wounds in John's body.
