Armed Robber Wanted To Take Cash, Instead Took A Bullet

posted on November 19, 2015

A little before 1 a.m. in the Brookside neighborhood of Kansas City, Mo., an armed man walked into a 7-Eleven with crime on his mind. At that hour, he likely figured odds were on his side—one clerk, no customers and a gun in hand.

What he didn’t figure was that he wouldn’t be the only one with a gun. He found that out the hard way when he pulled his sidearm out and attempted to rob the store. Rather than hand over the cash, the clerk drew his own gun in response. The robber then ran to the door and turned around and pointed his firearm at the clerk. The 7-Eleven employee fired a single shot and the robber fled for good. 

The armed robber remains at large—likely with a gunshot wound, as the clerk believed his bullet struck the suspect.
