Followup NM: Video of Clerk that Shot Suspect at Circle K

The clerk at that store had her own firearm. She says when he pointed his gun, she pointed hers right back and pulled the trigger. Police lapel footage and 911 calls released Wednesday capture those intense moments immediately after it happened. 

  • Caller: "He came running in the store with a gun drawn and he got shot."
  • Dispatcher: "He got shot?"
  • Caller: "Yes, ma'am. My assistant had a gun."

The video shows police approaching the injured man later identified as 23-year-old Ferron Mendez. Police say Mendez tried to rob the Circle K on Eubank and Candelaria. But when he aimed the gun at clerk Jennifer Wertz, she took action.
