    A suspect charged with shooting a Rhode Island police officer during an early morning foot chase has been held without bail.

    Young was treated at the hospital and released.

    [NATL] Clerk Pulls Out Machete on Would-Be Robber

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.

    Chandler was apprehended after a two-hour standoff in a parking lot during which police used a concussion grenade.

    No lawyer was listed for Chandler in online court records and the judge referred him to the public defender's office.
