Indianapolis Gas Station Employee Stops Armed Robber

posted on March 10, 2017

A gas station attendee was working alone around midnight on Tuesday when a man carrying a gun suddenly burst through the storefront. However, the station had been robbed before, so the worker was also armed—and ready to act. 

The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department responded to the 911 call immediately, finding a deceased man in the parking lot. Investigators told WISH-TV 8 that the suspect had charged the gas station clerk and demanded money. The clerk then grabbed his own gun and fired, hitting 20-year-old Levi Walker, who stumbled into the parking lot and succumbed to his injuries.

IMPD Major Richard Riddle said the safety of late night workers is a major issue. “We’ve had clerks killed during robberies and we’ve had clerks turn the gun on would-be suspects and fire upon them. The safety of workers is a paramount concern for us and should be a paramount concern to business owners.”
