Store Employee Who Was Warned Of Criminal Activity Shoots Robber

posted on May 10, 2017

Last Friday, Memphis police were making the rounds to warn businesses about a serial liquor store robber. The suspect—who had last been seen wearing a ski mask and carrying a gun—had already terrorized eight stores and was considered armed and dangerous. That warning came just in time for an employee of I-40 Liquor.

WMC Action News 5 is reporting that a suspect walked into that establishment just past 11 p.m. Saturday night. He pointed a gun at the clerk and demanded cash. It was then the employee grabbed his own gun and fired, fatally striking the attempted robber.

“It was crazy,” said Anna Butler, who works next door to the liquor store. “It happened minutes after we left last night. I know [the employee] never would have done this had he not felt in danger.” Memphis police are still investigating whether the suspect who was killed might have been the serial robber.
