By Sun-Times Wire email

An investigation into a shooting that fatally wounded a man Sunday night during a domestic-related altercation in the Austin neighborhood has been closed after investigators determined it was committed in self-defense.

Henry Ratcliff Jr, 59, was involved in a “domestic-related altercation” about 7:50 p.m. in the 4800 bock of West Gladys Avenue when he was shot multiple times in the abdomen, according to Chicago police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Former mayor won’t face charges for shooting man in pharmacy

LANCASTER, Pa. (AP) — A former Pennsylvania mayor won’t face charges for firing at an armed man who tried to rob his pharmacy last month.

The Lancaster County district attorney’s office said in a statement Friday that authorities “anticipate no charges against the store employee who fired upon the robber,” who was wounded.

LNP reports court documents have identified the employee as former mayor Charlie Smithgall.

Documents filed by Lancaster city police say 72-year-old Smithgall fired four times at Brandon Galette after he and an unidentified man entered Smithgall’s Pharmacy and repeatedly asked for Oxycodone while brandishing a gun.

Alliance police had been called to a report of a suspicious man lying in the road.

ALLIANCE Police called to a report of a man lying in the road found him walking away.

When they yelled for him to stop, he continued on, walking into a nearby home.

A “few seconds” later, he walked out of the house, began yelling at the officers and then started fighting with them, according to Stark County Jail records.

Jail records show that at some point, police used a stun gun to arrest Quinton S. Howard, 27, of the 100 block of W. Harrison Avenue.

    Not that Austin: That’s how you do it ladies. You don’t have to put up with dirtbags. Remember to fire center mass until target is negated.
    Farmer Mayor: Good for him, gun collector that shoots people who try to rob him. He’s got my vote.
    Alliance Taser shot: Well SJWs & give ’em a huggers; here’s your chance to rehabilitate a dindu. Help him turn his life around, get him his GED, put him in junior college, join him up in the choir, and let him become a role model. /s/ NOT. Sit back, pop some popcorn, and wait a little while; we’ll see this dirt bag again.
