Indianapolis, Indiana

From Indianapolis’ WTHR.com of May 16, 2006
Robbery suspect killed

Gunfire between security guards and a robbery suspect last night inside the Village Pantry at 71st and Georgetown Road.

The robbery suspect, a 53 year-old Indianapolis man, died from the gunshots. Investigators say the suspect entered the store, showed a gun and told the clerk and another man in plain clothes to get behind the counter. When the suspect realized the man in plain clothes was a security officer, he fired two shots at him.

A second security guard then opened fire. The two security officers are both OK. They are privately hired by Trinity Security.

Witnesses say they saw another person involved, possibly driving a getaway car. A black '79 to '82 Cutlass or Grand Prix with primer on the door sped south on Georgetown after the shooting. If you have any information, you are urged to call Crimestoppers. Police say there is a surveillance system inside the store, video of the shooting is not available yet.
