Indiana: Truck Stop Security Guard Shoots Thief After Car Cash

Chesterton, Indiana

From the March 5, 2008 Indianapolis Star:
CHESTERTON, Ind. -- A man suspected of shoplifting hair-growth formula from a drug store was shot and wounded by a truck stop security guard following a high-speed chase in northwest Indiana.

Police say 36-year-old Michael A. Holmes of Markham, Ill., faces several charges when he is released from the hospital.

Police say Holmes had a woman and three children in his car Monday night as he led police on a chase at speeds of up to 100 mph from Chesterton to Gary.

Holmes fled on foot after crashing the car. A security guard at the Dunes Truck Stop says he shot Holmes in the abdomen when Holmes reached for his gun.
