BETHEL PARK, PA – Police in western Pennsylvania say a man was shot to death after reportedly brandishing a wooden club in an attack on the owners of a Pittsburgh-area music store.

Police Chief John Mackey told reporters that the 32-year-old man entered Armen's House of Music in Bethel Park shortly before noon Saturday but left after two or three minutes.

Mackey said he went outside to his car and then returned carrying the club, which the chief said he used to strike the wife of the store owner.

Mackey said the owner came to his wife's defense and was also attacked, and the two struggled briefly before the owner pulled a revolver and shot and killed the attacker.

The store owner and his wife were taken to UPMC Mercy for treatment of unspecified injuries. Police said they are expected to recover.

Mackey said robbery appeared not to be the motive, and he didn't know whether the owners knew the man, whose name was not immediately released.

Police and county homicide detectives are investigating. The medical examiner's office said its crew had not yet returned from the scene.

Well, seeing as the guy was attacking them with a club, he acted in defense of himself and his wife. He really had no choice but kill the attacker.

He mustn't have had a gun! He had to let that righteously angered man beat his wife to a crippling death with a tool of a far less specific purpose than a gun... while calling the police! That bloody murdering swine will probably go on a shooting spree on a baseball game as soon as he recovers!

dont worry, the revised (again) gun control laws will accomodates the man-with-the-club wishes.
