What would you prefer?

MEDFORD, NY (CBSNewYork/AP) – A gunman shot four people inside a pharmacy in a New York suburb Sunday morning, killing everyone inside the store in what police said looked like a robbery gone wrong.
Police rushed to the scene after getting a 911 call from someone in the pharmacy’s parking lot. When they arrived, they found two employees and two customers dead, said Suffolk County Police Department’s Chief of Detectives, Dominick Varrone. No one inside the shop survived. 
Or this?
PINCH, W.Va. – A pharmacist in Pinch who was forced to make an incredibly difficult decision when an armed robbery turned deadly is speaking out and sharing how his faith is helping him through the ordeal. 
Eight people were inside the pharmacy in Pinch when the suspect came through the door about 9:45 a.m. 
Kanawha deputies said the man, identified by Kanawha deputies as Terry Gillenwater, 25, of Quick, was wearing a mask over his face. He stood in line for a few moments before producing a handgun and pointing it directly at the counter workers. 
Radcliff said he was standing just a few feet away. He drew his own weapon, firing three times, hitting the suspect twice and one shot actually hit the man's gun as he was aiming to fire back.
When violence descended on him, Mr. Radcliff was able to save eight lives, including his own. Facing the same situation, four disarmed innocents in New York had no chance and were slaughtered. I know what choice the families of the victims in New York would make. It's the same choice I would make, and any sane person would make.
