A 911 operator got an unusual call Tuesday night in Cabarrus County -- from a man who said he'd been shot by a clerk while trying to rob a store.

Kannapolis police say they will charge John Arthur Davidson III with two counts of robbery and assault, once he is released from Carolinas Medical Center/Northeast. He is hospitalized with wounds in his lower right leg and his upper right torso, and police say Davidson was wounded by a clerk at Bethpage Grocery.

According to police, a man walked into the store, in the 4900 block of Mooresville Road, about 8:30 p.m. Tuesday night. The man, wearing a bandana and a dark hooded sweatshirt, pulled a gun and demanded the personal belongings of the two employees, along with cash from the register.

Police say one of the employees pulled her gun and fired several times at the man, who then ran out of the business.

A short time later, a 911 operator received a call from a man who, police say, told the operator "he just tried to rob the store and got shot." The man said he was in some bushes behind the business, and that's where police officers found him soon afterward....

Don't these stupid criminals know that they should be robbing the national chains, not the local places? The chains most likely have policies of compliance in case of robbery. Mom and pops will blow you away if they can.

Me, too.

And BS made an astute observation . . . Mom 'n Pop establishments are not gonna get all bent out of shape about employees having firearms on the premises.

That was one really dumb thug, fer shur.

Just one question: now did I get it straight that he was in bushes near the establishment when he called? So that means he whipped out his cell phone and dialed 911? I would have been calling a friend, lol. That is pretty lame.

With a bullet in the torso and leg, I would be seeking someone to help me stop the bleeding from the multiple bullet wounds, do CPR if necessary, I'd maybe try to stumble into the nearest convenience store............oh.. wait......
