An employee told police that he left out of the store to take a smoke break when he was approached by three suspects and at least two of them were armed.

One of the suspects pointed a gun at the employee and told him to go back inside. The employee then pulled pistol and shot the 18-year-old suspect once in the stomach.

The suspect was taken to Skyline Medical Center for their injuries.

The two other suspects fled the scene through the back of the store with one suspect dropping a pistol at the scene. They reportedly were dressed in black with their faces covered.
