California Donut Shop Employee Shoots And Kills Robbery Suspect

posted on March 1, 2017

You can bet dollars to donuts that a couple of thieves never expected to encounter any resistance in the dead of the night. However, shortly before 3 a.m. last Friday two would-be robbers smashed the front window of the Sugary Donut shop in Lancaster, Calif., ran past the counter and grabbed the cash register. They then discovered an employee was already in the shop—and that worker happened to be armed. 

Lt. John Corina of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Homicide Bureau told KABC-TV the employee “had been the victim of a robbery before, he had been robbed at a previous donut shop where he worked.” So, the employee grabbed his gun and shot at the suspects, fatally injuring one and sending the second intruder scrambling out the door without the cash register. Investigators say the deceased suspect was armed with a tire iron. The second man remains at large.
