A robbery suspect was shot by an employee at Gold Exchange in Corpus Christi, TX, KRIS-TV reports.

The suspect walked into the store and fired a gun on Thursday afternoon. The employee fired back.

The suspect ran away and was eventually caught by police. He was taken to Spohn Shoreline Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, according to KRIS-TV.

Three other suspects in the attempted robbery jumped into a car and drove away, police say. They were arrested soon afterward.

Police believe the four suspects were also involved in another robbery attempt earlier Thursday afternoon.

KRIS-TV reports that the men “are facing a slew of charges including aggravated robbery.”

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
