Memphis, Tennessee

From December 4, 2007 channel 24 Memphis:

Police say a man who was dropped off at the Med with a critical gunshot wound may be the same man who was shot while robbing a convenience store in North Memphis.

According to investigators, a man and woman busted into the store in the 2000 block of North Chelsea armed with guns and robbed the place.

Store surveillance video obtained by Eyewitness News Everywhere shows the robbers wearing masks or bandannas to cover their faces as they point the guns at an unarmed clerk behind the counter.

The store owner says the robbers were surprised by another employee who was outside locking up a laundromat on the other side of the building. That employee happened to be carrying a gun in his coat pocket to protect himself while working outside at night.

Police said the employee and at least one of the robbers traded gunfire. It was unclear who shot first, but investigators believe the man involved in the robbery was hit. The woman got away.
