Police said the security guard followed a man outside because he seemed to be leaving with unpaid items hidden in his pants. He told detectives that he wanted to take a picture of the man and prevented him from entering the store.
Furthermore, when the alleged robber climbed into the passenger seat of a tan Ford Explorer, police said the guard spread pepper spray. The officers said that the scout driver then fired a flare gun at the security guard, hitting him in the chest.
Investigators said the security guard, who believed he had been shot, shot the Explorer, hitting the suspected robber in the back. The explorer, who was carrying Marshall County signs, was found around 11:15 p.m. On Brewer Road near Tusculum Road, where police said they have located the suspected robber who was shot.
In addition, during an interview, police said the suspected robber admitted he was inside Kroger and had a flare gun, but they claimed it wasn’t him who fired the gun. He explained that he did not know the driver, but asked him not to call the police because he had valid arrest warrants and needed time to escape. The suspected robber was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center for treatment for a gunshot wound. No charges were brought against him as of Wednesday morning.
While police are searching for the Explorer driver, they are urging anyone with information to call the Nashville Crime Stoppers at 615-74-CRIME.
