Market owner shoots at gunman

The owner of NM Minimart, 823 Elm St., fired at a gunman who robbed the store this morning, Cincinnati police said.

Cincinnati Police Lt. Mark Briede said a man entered the store about 11:30 a.m., implied he had a gun and robbed the store of cash.

The owner followed the man outside onto Ninth Street and fired at him.

“Officers in the area actually heard the shots,” Briede said.

Briede said there is a school across the street from the market and lots of people were walking in the neighborhood.

“I think we are very fortunate that no one was hit that we are aware of,” Briede said.

Police were interviewing the store owner and searching for the robbery suspect.
