Indianapolis, Indiana – Despite the fact that a concealed carrying pawn shop customer likely saved lives when he shot and killed a career criminal during an armed robbery this week, the man now says he fears for his life.
According to a local Fox affiliated television station:
Police say a person came into the business and showed a weapon. Multiple shots were fired. It is unclear if the suspect fired shots or just brandished his weapon. A witness claims both men fired shots.
[Witness Jeremy Stewart] said he was rounding the corner, about to go inside, when he saw a gun battle go down. Stewart told FOX59 Tyerre Allen and that customer exchanged shots, as others in the store searched for safety…
…When officers arrived, they found the suspect shot multiple times at the entrance of the business. He was pronounced dead by EMS crews on the scene.
The suspect was ID’d as Tyerre Allen, who was just released from prison after serving time for a previous robbery.
The customer, who likely won’t face any charges, is asking that their face and name be withheld from the media because they fear retaliation.
This is also the second defensive gun use we’ve reported on out of Indianapolis this week.
