Concertina Beer Hall Owner Kills Armed Intruder

The Milwaukee County District Attorney's Office will decide whether a local bar owner was justified in shooting to death an armed robber.

Rob Kochanski owns Kochanski's Concertina Beer Hall on South 37th Street. Police say three suspects entered the hall around midnight Friday and attempted to hold up the bar, showing a gun. The owner drew a handgun and shot one suspect who died at the scene. The other two ran.

On Kochanski's Facebook page, he says does not regret protecting himself and his customers.
