At around 8:40 p.m. on Monday, an armed robbery suspect entered a Hang Time apparel store in Indianapolis and demanded cash from one of the clerks.

The masked man was given the cash he desired by the clerk — but instead of leaving, he went after the clerk for a second time when the employee tried to dial 911.

With all of his attention focused on the one clerk, the armed robber didn’t realize there was someone sneaking up behind him. Unfortunately, for the robber, the person was a second clerk who was carrying a firearm.

The armed clerk then opened fire on the robber, the Indianapolis Star reports. Police eventually arrived on the scene and found the wounded suspect.

The suspect, identified as 34-year-old Carlos Brookins, was in critical condition on Tuesday.
