Robber Shot During His Own Robbery
The Prosecutor will decide if any charges will be filed against a hamilton man who shot and killed another man during a robbery.
Officers were called to the home on Parrish Avenue last night just after 11. A person who called 9-1-1 said a robber had been shot and the man who lives there was stabbed several times.
Officers found the man, Robert Shoemaker, on the front porch suffering from stab wounds.
The body of Chad Gabbard was found in the basement of the home.
At this point police believe Gabbard was robbing Shoemaker and had stabbed him.
Neighbors say they're stunned by the violence, "Stuff doesn't happen...in this neighborhood...we're quiet....everybody sticks to themselves...nobody gets in nobody's business."
Shoemaker is recovering at West Chester Medical Center. Family members told us they did not have any comment.
