Store Clerk Shoots at Attempted Beer Thieves

A clerk fired shots at two people trying to steal beer from a convenience store in Balch Springs early Tuesday morning.

A woman and a man entered the 24-hour store on Seagoville Rd. at around 4 a.m. and took off with a case of beer.

The store clerk followed, and fired a gun at the suspects several times. He missed, and the male suspect dropped the beer as he ran.

A nearby police sergeant followed the suspects, who reportedly fled in a gold Contour sedan. The sedan was found wrecked further down the road.

The female suspect was discovered in the nearby woods, and she was arrested.

The male suspect is still on the loose.

The gas station was equipped with security cameras, which police hope will lead them to the man.

The store was temporarily shut down while police investigated, but has since been reopened.
