Air pistol? The robber had a pistol that shot air? Hardly regulable under federal law, not even under the auspices of the ATF. That means that one of the NYPD cops shot the ATF agent. He bagged a "good guy", well at least he got to bag someone, no one should be left out. It's sort of like the "no wrong answer" system they have in schools nowdays...

"Police Sunday identified the suspected robber as James McGoey, 43, of Hampton Bays, who was shot and killed at the scene.

McGoey left the pharmacy with 300 tabs of oxycodone, the highly addictive prescription painkiller, possibly another narcotic called Opana, and cash, law enforcement sources said. The weapon he displayed appeared to be an air pistol, according to preliminary reports, a law enforcement source said."
