Armed smash and grab cell phone thieves stopped by armed employee

St. Louis has been plagued for years by armed robbers who break into cell phone stores and steal all the cell phones that they can grab. An example from June 2013 is available here.  Here is the police account from a robbery today:
. . . An employee arrived to start work and saw two men in a Mitsubishi Diamante drive into the front glass door of the store. The men then entered the store carrying bags, followed by a third man who had exited a Jeep Cherokee. Once inside the store, the men began to smash out the glass on the counters where cell phones were stored. The employee retrieved a firearm and began shooting at the burglars, hitting one. The trio dropped the bags and ran from the store. The cell phones were all recovered. . . . .
These robberies with the thieves smashing their cars through store windows must be pretty scary.

Well, having an employee shooting at the thieves must have been pretty scary, too ... for the thieves!

Wonderfully understated point made, Dr. Lott.
