    Confirmed, got this off of Snopes, sorry if a repost:


    On 3 February 1990, David Zaback attempted to hold up H&J Leather & Firearms Ltd., a gun shop located in Renton Highlands near Seattle, Washington. About 4:40 p.m. that day, he entered the crowded shop and announced his intention to rob it by telling everyone to put their hands on the counter and saying if anybody moved, he'd kill them. He then spotted a uniformed policeman having coffee with Wendall Woodall, the shop's owner. What happened next is less than clear in terms of who shot first, but there was an exchange of gunfire between David Zaback, the would-be robber; Timothy Lally, an 18-year veteran of the King County police force; and Danny Morris, one of the shop's clerks.

    Zaback, who had fired three times, was shot three times in the chest and once in the arm. He died in the hospital about four hours after the shooting. No one else was injured during the incident, and no charges were subsequently laid against Lally or Morris.



    The true account is not as good as the Darwin award story, but still......

    Heres the link for verification:

    My neighbor used to run a gun shop, hence the name of my road Gun Barn Road. In the mid-70's some idiot tried to hold him up. He said OK, let me get the cash box it's under the counter and reached down and grabbed a pistol and shot the guy in the inner hip. He ended up bleeding to death. :laugh:
