An armed robber jumped the counter of an Overland Park, Kansas, Boost Mobile store and was shot dead by the clerk Monday night, say authorities.
KSHB reports that the incident occurred around 7:45 pm. Overland Park Police spokesman John Lacy indicated that the alleged armed robber, Deshawn L. Brim, “demanded cellphones and jumped over the counter.”
A store employee, who was armed, fired one bullet, which struck and killed Brim.

An armed adult male tried to rob the Boost Mobile store here at 76th & Metcalf. The employee inside was armed and fired one shot, killing him. That employee is in questioning with @OverlandPark_PD & is cooperating. The owner of the store is here at the scene.
