Would-Be Robber With Screwdriver Foiled
INDIANAPOLIS - A customer carrying a gun foiled a man who attempted to
rob a fast-food restaurant with a screwdriver in his pocket, police said.
William McMiller Jr., 40, was being held at the Marion County jail
Friday on an $80,000 bond for an initial charge of robbery.
He demanded money and threatened to shoot a cashier at the Kentucky
Fried Chicken on the city's west side Thursday afternoon, according to
McMiller ordered a bucket of chicken then told the cashier, "Give me the
money before I shoot you," police said.
He held his hand in his back pocket as if reaching for a gun, police
said, then began to climb over the counter.
Paul Sherlock, a customer sitting in the dining room, approached and
pulled out his 9 mm handgun.
He held McMiller at gunpoint until police arrived. Officers found a long
screwdriver, but no gun, in McMiller's pocket.
Sherlock had a valid gun permit, police said.
