A would-be robber was shot to death outside a grocery store after opening fire on security guards chasing him, Texas police said.
San Antonio police responded to a call about a shooting near an H-E-B location on the city’s east side at about 2 p.m. Monday, Dec. 4, police told KSAT.
An armed man entered the store and tried to rob it, but was chased out by two on-site security guards, Chief William McManus said at a news briefing shared by KENS.
But as the guards gave chase, the man ambushed them, ducking behind a vehicle and opening fire, McManus said.
Both guards were wounded but fired back at the man, killing him, according to McManus.
Police have not publicly identified the accused robber but said he was a man in his 40s.
The security guards were taken to a hospital in stable condition, McManus said.
