A 7-Eleven clerk in Phoenix, Arizona, shot and wounded an alleged robbery suspect in the early morning hours Christmas Eve.

Fox 10 reports that the wounded suspect was accompanied by a juvenile accomplice who was able to escape.

Police believe the suspect was involved in two other robberies within an hour of being shot.

AZ Family reports that the first of the two other alleged robberies “happened shortly after 1 a.m. near 12th Street and Maryland Avenue.” Either the suspect or his accomplice struck the clerk over the head with a handgun during this robbery.

The second of the first two alleged robberies “happened shortly before 2 a.m. near 7th Street and Bethany Home Road.” No one was harmed in the second reported robbery.

The alleged robbery in which the suspect was shot occurred at 2 a.m.

On November 18, 2018, Breitbart News reported that crime plummeted for Quik Trip after the convenience store change decided to put armed personnel in their stores. KWCH reported that the personnel will be armed security, but QuikTrip also left the door open to armed clerks in situations where the clerks “have previous experience and necessary licenses.”
