WICHITA, Kan. (AP) A Wichita convenience store robbery turns deadly after a clerk shoots one of the suspects.
The Wichita Eagle reports two armed men entered KC Gas Groceries shortly after 7 p.m. Thursday and encountered an armed clerk, who shot one of them.
Police arrived to find a man lying on the floor of the store. He was pronounced dead at a local hospital at 7:43 p.m.
The same store was robbed less than a week before, but police aren’t saying whether it was related to the one Thursday.
In the earlier robbery, the store’s clerk had just closed up for the night when he was approached by two armed men who ordered him back into the store. The robbers cleaned out the cash register and fled on foot.
