Kansas Store Clerk Thwarts Armed Robbery

posted on May 28, 2016

A Kansas liquor store clerk used his firearm to stop two armed robbers who were holding up his shop on Tuesday.

According to local media reports, two armed men entered MGS Liquor in Park City, Kan., around 10:40 p.m. The clerk later told police that one of the men asked “if he was ready to die because this was a robbery and to give them all the money.”

Not ready to die, the clerk pulled his own gun and fired two shots, hitting one of the men, who ran from the store. The clerk held the uninjured robber at gunpoint until police arrived. The injured armed robber was later admitted to a Kansas City hospital for a gunshot wound to the chest.
