Wow, a grocery store with an armed security guard. Hopefully the guard does not run afoul of the law for chasing the guy down.A security guard, stabbed by a shoplifting suspect, fatally shot the man tonight at a busy Brookside intersection, police said.
The guard’s injuries were not considered life-threatening.
Police Sgt. Mike Glass said the guard was working at the Price Chopper at 6327 Brookside Plaza when he saw a man trying to steal something about 8:40 p.m.
The guard chased the suspect about two blocks, to 63rd Street and Wornall Road. The suspect stabbed the guard in the upper body, and the guard then shot the suspect.
The suspect was transported to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The guard also was taken to a hospital.
