According to the IMPD, the shooting yesterday of an armed robber by a grocery store employee “appears to be justified”.
In further news that will no doubt surprise all of our loyal readers, the robber shot by the armed store employee was a model, upstanding citizen.
Barreto [the dead badguy – ed] has been in and out of jail for years. An Eyewitness News investigation shows his first arrest happened when he was only 14 years old. His arrests since then include armed robbery, auto theft and drug possession. Based on what happened at the supermarket Sunday, police now suspect him in other crimes.
Apparently, the gun was kept in the store for the store for the employees to use in case of emergency; the employee who shot the robber dropped him with a single shot. Nice shooting.
