Fake officer to go on trial for gun store owner shooting (Arizona)

A con of a gun store owner went bad and the store owner paid the price and was killed.

Quoted: A Family members said that Edmundson (fake lotto officer) had been extorting Petro (gun store owner) by impersonating a state lottery officer. The scam was that Edmundson claimed that Petro’s winnings were fraudulent, and that he would jail Petro unless Petro paid him the winnings. Petro, as a highly regulated gun shop owner, was particularly vulnerable. Even an accusation might have resulted in the BATFE pulling his license and livelihood. When Petro’s brother read a newspaper article where Edmundson was prosecuted for impersonating an officer, Petro contacted a lawyer to see about recovering the $130,000 that he had already paid Petro.
