16-year-old killed in attempted pharmacy robbery

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Police say the would-be robber of a southwest Oklahoma City pharmacy was a 16-year-old.

Sgt. Gary Knight says Antwun Parker was shot and killed about 5:40 p.m. Tuesday by 57-year-old store pharmacist Jerome Erslend.

Police say Parker was shot when he and another person walked into the store and at gunpoint demanded cash and drugs.

Instead Erslend picked up a gun and opened fire - killing Parker as the second person ran from the store.

Knight says the second suspect remains at large.
