A burglar shot while Attempting to Rob a store.
--We are pleased to learn that, a few nights since, a burglar was shot in Chesterfield county
, from the effects of which he has since died.
It appears that Mr. S. S. Goode
, a citizen of that quarter of Chesterfield county
known as Skinquarter, had missed several articles from his store, and in order to prevent any further robbery, put his clerk to watch for him. The burglar entered the store during the night, and was fired at by the young man, who discharged both barrels, striking him in the lower part of the thigh.
After a considerable struggle, he was tied and conveyed to the county jail, where we learn he has since died.
He was a negro, formerly a slave to William Goode
, but our informant did not ascertain his name.
