    Greenfield - A man who tried to rob a Greenfield gun shop at knifepoint Thursday afternoon was shot in the chest by the shop owner, police said.

    The victim, identified only as a 57-year-old Greenfield man, was taken to Froedtert Memorial Lutheran Hospital in Wauwatosa, according to police.

    Police have yet to interview the victim because the shooting left him unconscious, Detective Sgt. Paul Schlecht said.

    Schlecht said later Thursday that the man's wound was not life threatening. The man's condition was not available Thursday evening from Froedtert.

    Schlecht said the shooting took place at about 3 p.m. inside Buckhorn Guns, one of four businesses located in a plaza in the 2700 block of W. Ramsey Ave.

    The parking lot of the plaza was surrounded by yellow police tape Thursday afternoon as police investigated the shooting.

    Schlecht said he did not know what the suspect demanded but said there is nothing to indicate the account of the incident that the store owner gave
    police was not true.

    He said the store owner, 44, shot the man once in the chest and that apparently no one else was inside the store when the shooting took place.
    The store owner was not injured.

    Schlecht said the case is being referred to the Milwaukee County district attorney's office, which will review the actions of the suspect and the shop owner. A case review could happen today, he said.

  2. I can see (or hear) it now when this thug gets to prison and is in the shower when Bubba, who's already thinking this thug has a motor mount broken, asks, "You robbed him with a what? He he he he. Let me show you how I redecorated my cell."
