Police: Employee kills robber at grocery store
A robber was shot and killed by a grocery store employee Sunday after the robber pointed a gun at a customer and her baby, police said.
The shooting happened at 8:50 p.m. at Tienda Suarez, 6240 W. 34th St.
Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department Sgt. Matthew Mount said the robber, brandishing a handgun, corralled all the customers into one part of the store. When the robber pointed the gun at a woman and her child, an employee shot him. The man was taken to Wishard Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Police would not identify the robbery suspect or the employee late Sunday. No charges had been filed against the employee, but Mount said the case would be reviewed by Marion County prosecutors to determine whether the shooting was justified.
