TULSA, Okla. (KTUL) — The owner of Forest Acres Liquor Store has released graphic surveillance video showing a violent run-in with an armed robber.
Tulsa police responded to the store near 12th and Memorial just after 6 p.m. Thursday after the clerk called 911, saying they shot the suspect multiple times. The suspect was gone by the time officers arrived, but he later showed up at a local hospital.
Police have identified the suspect as Tyrone Lee and believe he’s connected to 10 other robberies in the area. They say Lee walked into the liquor store Thursday evening with a shotgun, demanding money.
Surveillance video shows the suspect behind the counter before walking out of the camera’s view. The owner and her daughter both grab their guns, and when the suspect returns, the owner opens fire.
The suspect remains in critical condition at the hospital.
The liquor store was back open Friday.
