COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -

A shoplifter who was shot in the face after stealing a bottle of vodka from a Colorado Springs liquor store is suing the shop owner.
    
The Gazette reports that the shoplifter is seeking at least $100,000 for pain and suffering (http://bit.ly/SSikZ9 ). Bryson Adrian Dewberry was shot in the jaw two years ago by Chang Ho Yi, the owner of Austin Bluffs Plaza Liquor.
    
According to a lawsuit filed in early October, Yi witnessed the 2010 theft and pursued Dewberry out of his store with a loaded .357 revolver, which fired as Dewberry was in the backseat of a getaway car.
    
Dewberry's lawsuit alleges that Yi behaved "negligently and recklessly." Yi was initially arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, but a grand jury declined to charge him.
