CINCINNATI (AP) - Prosecutors say a convenience store clerk was justified in fatally shooting a teenage robbery suspect two weeks ago in southwest Ohio and won’t be charged criminally.

Authorities say 18-year-old Anton Kirby entered the Cheviot (SHEH’-vee-uht) convenience store July 29 wearing blue latex gloves and holding a handgun and ordered clerk Jeremy Donohue to empty the cash register. Donohoe pulled a handgun from his waistband after he was unable to open a store safe and shot Kirby four times.

Kirby died several days later at a Cincinnati hospital.

Prosecutors say Donohue is a concealed carry permit holder.

Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters (DEE’-turs) on Thursday said Kirby’s behavior was “totally out of character.” Kirby’s family has said he was an athlete with no history of trouble.
