Man Who Shot Bingo Hall Robber Won't Face Charges

PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) - Investigators say a bingo hall manager
who fatally shot an armed robber who entered his Pensacola hall
will likely not face chargers.

Sheriff's investigators say Alton Prewitt, 20, entered Beachside
Bingo on Wednesday, fired a shotgun blast into the ceiling and
demanded money.

Sheriff's spokesman Glenn Austin said manager Chad England
grabbed a handgun and fired in self-defense. Although criminal
charges against England are unlikely, Assistant State Attorney John
Molchan said he will review the Sheriff's Office's investigative
reports.
