Sporting Goods Employee Shoots Robbery Suspect

A sporting goods employee that “feared for his life” shot a robbery suspect in the chest after he tried to use a hammer to smash glass to steal guns, according to police.

Officers said the suspect was warned several times to stop when the employee pulled out his concealed firearm and shot the suspect once in the chest, KOMO-TV reported. The employee told police he was fearing for his life. Police found the suspect lying on the floor at about 11:15 AM with a gunshot wound to his chest.

He was detained by store employees before emergency crews took him to Harborview Medical Center for treatment. The employee was not injured during the robbery, police said. The investigation is ongoing. The sheriff’s office is being assisted by the Idaho State Police Investigations Unit and the Nez Perce County Prosecutor’s Office…   The Lewiston Tribune
