Utility Worker Shoots Armed Robber

posted on November 18, 2015

An armed robbery suspect was shot and killed Monday morning while attempting to hold up three utility workers in north St. Louis County. According to police, three contractors for ADB Utility Company were servicing water lines near an intersection when a man approached and pulled out a gun. The suspect took wallets from two of the utility workers first, then demanded that the third worker hand over his belongings, which were inside of a work truck. 

The third victim had a handgun stored inside the truck, however, and was able to retrieve the firearm. He then fired one shot at the suspect, striking him in the chest; the robber died at the scene. The robbery victim is cooperating with police, and investigators have recovered the suspect’s handgun, said St. Louis County Sgt. Brian Schellman. The St. Louis County Police Department is handling the incident as an act of self-defense.
