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 Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
