A Coatesville, Pennsylvania, convenience store customer foiled an alleged Tuesday night robbery attempt by shooting the suspect multiple times.

Daily Local News reports the incident occurred in the Turkey Hill Market, where the suspect allegedly displayed a firearm and “demanded money from employees.”

The concealed permit holder went into the store, drew his gun, and shot the suspect multiple times.

Fox 29 reports that the suspect was identified as Lawrence Galloway. He suffered “multiple gunshot wounds to the lower torso” and was transported to a hospital for treatment.

Police indicate Galloway has an “active bench warrant for a state parole violation.” He also has an active criminal warrant out of Harrisburg for a drug-related matter. Charges for robbery and gun possession will be added to his record.
