KC police identify robber shot by store owner
Kansas City police today identified a robbery suspect who died after being shot by a store owner and involved in a car wreck Sunday afternoon.
Christopher L. Kublic, 28, moved to Kansas City from the state of Washington within the past month, police said.
Along with another man, Kublic allegedly tried to hold up a hydroponics store using a stun gun about 5:15 p.m. Sunday in the 3600 block of St. John Avenue, in the city’s Northeast neighborhood. The store owner told police he pulled his own gun and shot the robber.
Shortly after the holdup, a vehicle matching the suspects’ was found overturned about three blocks away.
Kublic was lying next to the wrecked vehicle. He was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
The second suspect remained at-large this afternoon, police said.
