On September 8 an armed citizen shot and killed a man he claimed was trying to rob him outside an Indianapolis Kroger store.
The allegedly robbery took place at the corner of West Michigan Street and North Holmes Avenue “just before 6:20 a.m.”
According to FOX 59, the suspect was armed and “was found next to an ATM” when police arrived. Indianapolis Metropolitan police West District Headquarters are located across the street, and officers ran toward the shooting when they heard sound of gunfire outside the headquarters.
Police found a white pickup truck in the Kroger parking lot “with the window shot out.” The vehicle “was still running,” which means the alleged robbery could have begun with a carjacking attempt. But police are still investigating.
On August 18 Breitbart News reported that Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America launched an anti-gun campaign to pressure Kroger to join Chili’s, Chipotle, Jack in the Box, and others in changing their firearms policy to make it harder for law-abiding citizens to carry guns for self-defense.
