Tony Singh - Salute a hero before he gets banged up.

Shopkeeper fears murder charge after armed robber dies in fight - Times Online

A shopkeeper could be charged with murder after an armed robber who tried to steal the day’s takings was stabbed with his own knife during a struggle.

Tony Singh, 34, described as a hard-working family man who often works 13-hour days, was ambushed as he shut his shop on Sunday evening by Liam Kilroe, 25, a career criminal who was armed with a knife.

Kilroe, of Billinge, near St Helens, who had convictions stretching back nine years, was in breach of bail conditions at the time of his death. He had failed to appear in court to answer charges that he carried out armed robberies at a shop and post office with an imitation firearm. In one raid a postmaster was hit over the head with a handgun but the robbers fled empty-handed. In a second robbery, at a general shop in Croston, Leyland, they forced a woman behind the counter to open the till at gunpoint and hand over £8,000.

Mr Singh fought back and, after a fierce hand-to-hand struggle, Kilroe was seen by witnesses to stagger away clutching the knife to his chest. Kilroe was taken to hospital, where he died, and Mr Singh was detained by police. He is now waiting to discover whether he will be charged, and is on police bail until February 29 pending further inquiries.

Lancashire police confirmed that papers had been sent to the Crown Prosecution Service, which will decide whether Mr Singh should be charged with one of three offences: murder, manslaughter or assault.

They should be deciding whether Mr Singh deserves a medal, a large reward for cleaning the gene pool a little or both. And what was the dead angel doing out on bail anyway?

It's a little early to panic: the reference to the CPS is routine.

However, it is worth making a fuss now, so that the CPS is on notice that potential jurors are not impressed by the thought of this chap being charged.

The whole thing disgusts and depresses me. What kind of a country have we become. Good luck Tony, I am sure 99% of the country are behind you. Shame on the police.

I used to work for Tony and he is a good man, he doesn't deserve to get charged for protecting himself as i would have done the same to protect myself. He is a very different man now to what he was, the Tony i know knows how to have a laugh and always makes a point of saying hello when he sees you. So to see him like this isn't very nice the only reason i dont work for Tony anymore is because i dont work for Tony anymore is because my daughter is ill alot and its hard to work find babysitters and help my daughter but other wise i would still be there as i love that shop. there should be no charges for trying to protect yourself against someone trying to kill you.

Tony Singh should be compensated for his injuries not hounded by the police for protecting himself and his property from an evil villain like Kilroe.It reflects deplorably on the politicians and the police (and the Crown Prosecution Service, if they proceed with this case).I will definitely consider the outcome of this case the next time I cast my vote.

If you were to see tony now he is a completey different man no amount for prosecution is gunna affect him the way he is affected by all this. He is so quite and to see a happy go lucky always joking and always seeing the good in people, go to a quiet and you can see he is scared and to see that difference from last week when i saw him and he's like hey donna you ready to come back from your early retirment to come back to work to what he is now we are lucky if he talks to us for a few miuntes.

All's i say is that if he gets prosecuted in any way it's wrong the whole justice system is wrong it will detroy him and his daughters along with his wife dad and brothers.

If it was not the robber that got stabbed it would have been Tony. The robber took the risk He knew the score. Whether convicted or not Tony will never be the same again. The robber should never have been allowed bail with a record like that.
