Man Shot and Killed by Store Clerk in Kansas City
For the second time this week, a disturbance at a local Shell Station has lead to gunshots. The gas station and convenience store located at 5501 Bannister Rd in Kansas City was the scene of a fatal shooting last night. Police responded to a disturbance call at the location that was quickly upgraded to a shooting around 7PM on Friday. A witness described the victim as "acting crazy", throwing things and generally tearing the place up before the clerk took action. The clerk reportedly tasered the man before shooting him. Police arrived to find the man bleeding just outside the door of the store. He later died at the hospital.
Early Wednesday morning, cops were called to the same station. Two armed men tried to hold up the store. A clerk (we don't know if it was the same one involved in last nights incident), pulled a gun from his waistband and fired several shots. The would be robbers fled and have not been arrested. One of the men may have been shot.
I think the message has been sent to would be robbers and other dirt bags. Do not pull any shenanigans at the Shell Station at 5501 Bannister Rd. They are packin' and not afraid to spray a little lead. One more piece of trash cleaned off the street.
