A Cincinnati police captain said a would-be robber is dead because a 63-year-old convenience store owner protected herself.

“A 48-year-old individual comes inside, points a gun to her head, demands money,” said Capt. Paul Broxterman.

Police responded to the Glenway Pony Keg on Glenway Avenue at about 4:30 p.m. Wednesday. Officers found James Douglas, 48, had been fatally shot. Broxterman said the man was trying to rob the West Price Hill store, but the owner put up a fight — shooting and killing Douglas.
