A robbery suspect is dead and a liquor store owner injured after a gun battle Sunday night in Santa Clarita, California.
KHTS reports police were called to the scene around 8:20 p.m., where they found the deceased suspect and the wounded store owner.
A press release from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office says “deputies discovered an individual adult male entered the location with the intent to rob it.” A gun battle followed, leaving the store owner with non-life-threatening injuries.
Video from the scene shows the store owner in pain, slowly crawling out the door of the business as law enforcement arrived:
