Wisconsin's First Concealed Carry Self-Defense Case


A customer who shot a suspect during an armed robbery at a grocery store Monday night will discuss his actions with prosecutors Wednesday.

Milwaukee police weren't saying much Tuesday about the incident, which took place about 7 p.m. at the Aldi store at N. 76th St. and W. Villard Ave. They said two suspects were arrested, and one had been shot and suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

The customer who intervened was not arrested but was told to report to the district attorney on Wednesday, police spokeswoman Anne E. Schwartz said.

Nik Clark, president of Wisconsin Carry Inc., a gun rights advocacy organization, said he wasn't surprised by the incident.
