Man shot outside Spokane marijuana dispensary

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — The owner of a Spokane marijuana dispensary shot a man outside the store Sunday night.

The owner of Northwest Healing Arts told sheriff's deputies he saw the man outside about 11:30 p.m. and confronted him with a gun because he has been burglarized in the past.

The owner says the man made a threatening move so he fired.

KXLY reports (http://bit.ly/1fPV62A) the wounded man was taken to Sacred Heart Medical Center, shot in the abdomen.
