Officers were patrolling the area when they spotted two masked suspects entering a Family Dollar store. The officers believed this to be a possible robbery in progress so they set up a perimeter outside the front of the store. The two suspects entered the store and attempted to rob the store’s cashiers at gun point. One of the suspects exited the front door of the store charging towards one of the officers who, in fear for his life and for the life of his partner, fired his duty weapon twice at the suspect, striking the suspect’s left leg. The second suspect was found hiding behind the store, a firearm that was found near the hiding suspect was also recovered.
