Guard shoots robbery suspect

An armed man exchanged gunfire with a shopping center security guard Tuesday after a robbery at a store near the Southdowns neighborhood.

The man, with two lookouts, had held up the Gameware store, 3151 College Drive, near Perkins Road, about 8:35 p.m., police spokesman Cpl. L’Jean McKneely said.

While leaving the store, the robber spotted a private security guard and fired one shot at him but missed, police said.

The guard returned fire, hitting the robber multiple times.

The robber, whose name was not reported, was taken to the hospital by EMS with life-threatening injuries, McKneely said.

His two accomplices fled in a green, older-model Pontiac, and police were still looking for them late Tuesday.
