Store-Shooting Death

No charges against storekeeper who killed man

Hamilton County's prosecutor says no charges will be filed against a storekeeper who fatally shot a man who entered his store.

The Cincinnati storekeeper -- Abdrab Ashishi -- told police that he fired in self-defense when the intruder pointed what turned out to be a toy gun at him. Prosecutor Michael Allen said today the storekeeper's statement was consistent with what police found at the scene and the coroner's autopsy report on the victim.

The prosecutor said he has concluded that the May 27th shooting of 40-year-old David Billups of Forest Park was in self-defense. The storekeeper said Billups had entered the convenience store wearing a mask and black leather gloves and carrying what appeared to be a real handgun.

Authorities say Billups had been previously convicted of aggravated robbery, aggravated burglary and kidnapping.
