that occurred during an attempted robbery. The owner allegedly shot a
man who was attempting to rob his business.

the Ohio City neighborhood. Information regarding the identity of those
involved or the specific circumstances has not been released by the police.
However, records say that there was an attempted robbery at a café
and gunshots were heard. When paramedics arrived at the scene, they transported
the robber to MetroHealth, where he died.
When asked to comment on the incident, Cleveland criminal defense attorney,
Ian Friedman, explained, “(Through) no fault of his own, my client
was put in what any person would perceive as a life-threatening situation.”

but we must consider how we would respond if we were placed in the café
owner’s position - confronted by an armed robber.
