UPDATE: Jerome Ersland FOUND GUILTY of First-Degree Murder Thursday, May, 26, 2011 … See The Cardinal Oklahoma Jury Says Pharmacist Jerome Ersland Guilty of First Degree Murder After Defending Pharmacy from Armed Robbers


Associated Press video report of armed robbery and self-defense shooting by pharmacist Jerome Ersland.


Full surveillance video showing before shooting, showing pharmacist checking on second fleeing suspect outside, using a second gun to shoot the suspect again, and calling (apparently) 9-1-1.

Jerome Ersland is a Desert Storm veteran wearing a cumbersome back brace to aid disabilities suffered in the war in Iraq. Here is Jerome Ersland’s account of the armed robbery attempt and his self-defense actions:

LEAD-IN
Reliable Dscount Pharmacy robbed two years ago with employees herded into a back room and pistol whipped.

Improved security setup installed at the pharmacy with magnetically locked doors.

ROBBERY ATTEMPT MAY 19, 2009
Two robbers assaulted Reliable Discount Pharmacy at 5:50 p.m. when narcotics and money were out — suggesting the robbers cased the business.

One robber overrode magnetic doors with a board to jam the doors and prevent them from closing.

Robbers ran in the store cursing and yelling, ordering employees to hand over drugs and money.

Two female employees ran to the back of the store.

Ersland unable to run due to injures and recent back surgery.

Shots fired by robbers. One grazed Ersland’s hand. One robber said ‘Your’e gonna die.’

Ersland used a semi-automatic in his pocket to return fire and hit one suspect in the head with bullet.

A bullet from the second, surviving robber whizzed by Ersland’s ear.

Ersland got a bigger gun from a nearby drawer.

Second robber ran.

Ersland emptied the ammunition of a Kel-Tec .380 into the first suspect’s chest.

As he went after the second suspect, he suspected a third male, black in a car with the engine running, reached for a shotgun.

Ersland pulled out his ‘Judge’ and aimed it ‘right between his eyes’ and the third suspect fled.

When Ersland returned inside the pharmacy, he called police.

Jerome Ersland faces a first-degree murder charge in the shooting death of Antwun Parker, 16, the would-be robber at Reliable Discount Pharmacy. Ersland is out on bail, released on $100,000 bond.

Sheriff’s deputies have arrested two accomplices: A 14 year-old boy (unidentified minor) and a convicted felon, Emanuel Dewayne Mitchell, who has been convicted of armed robbery and kidnapping.
