According to police, the suspect, 35-year-old Ricky Solis, had taken power tools from the store and left without paying.
Police said a loss prevention officer made contact with Solis in the parking lot and he tried to flee. However, the loss prevention officer was able to catch him and the two became involved in a struggle.
During the struggle, police said a second suspect went up to the two men who were involved in the struggle and tired to help Solis get away. The second suspect kicked the loss prevention officer in the face. He then went back to his vehicle and pulled out a tire iron.
A citizen who saw what was going on then pulled out a handgun and told the suspects to get on the ground. The second suspect ran back to his vehicle and fled the scene. The citizen continued to point his gun at Solis and told him to get on the ground.
