The St. Charles Parish Sheriff's Office says a man is dead after being shot during a struggle while trying to rob Thrift Village Drugs in Luling early last night.

He zipped-tied a clerk, but then got into a confrontation while trying to zip-tie the pharmacist who pulled out a gun and shot Fisher in the leg.

He apparently bled out and died after fleeing behind the strip mall.

The department said in a Facebook post that, at this point in the investigation, Sheriff Greg Champagne does not believe criminal charges will be filed against the pharmacist and tnat the use of deadly force was justified.
