Robber dies after being sat on

Robber dies after being sat on

Police in Maryland say a man who tried to rob a store died after a customer sat on him.

James Thompson was pronounced dead minutes after officers arrived at the scene.

He was sat on by a six foot two man who weighed 280 pounds after he was spotted stuffing packs of cigarettes into a bag.

Police say they have launched an investigation in to the death.

Diane Richardson, a Prince George's County police spokeswoman, said: "Thompson said to them to back off, that he had a gun and that he had recently come out of jail and wouldn't be going back."

The Washington Post reports that as he argued with a member of staff the customer went across and helped to restrain him.

Officers only realised he was dead as they started to handcuff him. Police say they recovered a knife, not a gun, from his body.

I wonder if the customer had a "license to carry" his weapon?
