Store Clerk Shoots Suspect During Robbery

Pine Bluff – Quick thinking by a Pine Bluff convenience store clerk kept a would-be robber from getting away with cash and merchandise.

It happened just before 8:00 p.m. Saturday at the United filling station on Hutchinson and Dollarway road.

The suspect entered the business and demanded cash from the employee. That’s when the clerk reportedly told the robber he would comply if the suspect shared a portion of the money and waited for a customer to leave the store.

(Lt. Bob Rawlinson, Pine Bluff Police Dept.) “The suspect went into the back room while a customer came in. When the customer left that’s when the suspect came out and by then the employee armed himself and they exchange gunfire.”

Officials say the suspect was apparently struck by gunfire and fled on foot.

Meanwhile, minutes after the incident, officials were called to a shooting victim in a residential area. There they found 20-year-old Norman Bullard with multiple gunshot wounds. Bullard alleged he was robbed by a man fitting the description of the suspect.

An investigation is ongoing.
