9:16 am
takes his knife because the robber doesn't have one. he throws it at the robber, the robber eventually picks it up, you see it there. to end this all the clerk actually throws the cash at the robber to get him out the door. incredibly no one suffered any major injuries in all this, a few cuts and scrapes and that robber remains on the run. we're following a developing story out of ohio. an ohio man stands accused of killing a mother and her two young daughters. neighbors called police to urbina hammond's apartment in columbus yesterday morning. officers found the body of hammonds and her daughters, ages 10 a and 7, all had been stabbed to death. >> such a horrible thick for anybody to do. to anyone. especially her and her children. they didn't deserve that. >> authorities say the suspect, wental callahan had a history of violence against hammond.
