Pharmacist Guns Down Robber

An Oklahoma County judge today ruled pharmacist Jerome Jay Ersland can get out of jail if he posts $100,000 in bail on his murder case, but that he can't have access to any guns.

Ersland is charged with first-degree murder for fatal shooting a would-be robber May 19 at the Reliable Discount Pharmacy in south Oklahoma City.

Prosecutors contend he went over the line when he shot the unarmed robber five times in the abdomen while the robber was incapacitated on the floor from a gunshot wound to the head. His defense attorney contends Ersland acted in self-defense.

District Judge Tammy Bass-LeSure set the bail amount after viewing a store videotape of the shooting of Antwun Parker, 16.


Store surveillance videotape has no audio.
