Caught Trying To Steal Electronics, Kmart Shoplifter Opens Fire

ROSEVILLE (WWJ) – Roseville police are looking for a man who shot at security guards at a Super Kmart store.

It happened at around 5:30 p.m. Monday at the Kmart near Gratiot and Frazho. That’s when police said store employees spotted a young man allegedly removing security tags from electronic equipment.

When they approached him, he pulled a  silver plated revolver from his pants and opened fire. The bullets hit the ground, but fragments struck two security guards.

The suspect then ran out and took off in a white Chrysler Sebring. A chase ensued.

Police say the getaway driver, a female, let the gunman out of the car and he continued on foot.  A search by K-9 units found no sign of him.

“Characterize it more than brazen,” said Roseville Police Deputy Chief James Berlin. “This is highly unusual for a shoplifter to one, be armed at all, let alone attempt to use a weapon to facilitate his escape.”

The woman is in custody.

The security guards were treated for minor injuries at a local hospital.

The suspect is described as back male in his early 20s, 6’3” 240 lbs., with short hair. He was wearing a dark-colored hoodie, a white T-shirt and jeans.

Anyone with information about the suspect is act to contact Roseville police at 586-447-4483.

    Gee! I wonder if the Security Guards fired upon could avail themselves of one of those unfair Self Defense Laws our insightful leaders are looking into. DUH!

    Hey, you goofy black reverends, where are you on this one? Of course, if the guards had shot and killed another black youth, you’d be all over the TV telling us how wonderful this $%&^# was. I’m just sayin’! And pointing out facts.
