AR:Little Rock store owner shoots armed robber

A Little Rock grocery store owner on Thursday, March 15, protected his property and family when an armed man came into the store for what he thought would be easy cash. Arkansas Online states that before the robber got out of the store with the money, he also got a bullet in his left foot.

According to reports, 21-year-old Alvin Aikens entered the Santa Maria Mexican grocery store on Baseline Rd. in Little Rock, put a gun to the owner’s back and demanded cash. After taking the cash, Aikens then shot at the store owner when he saw him reaching for something. The store owner shot Aikens, hitting him once in the foot.

Aikens fled the scene and later led police on a chase before they detained him. He was arrested for aggravated robbery, theft of property and fleeing, after being treated and released from UAMS Medical Center.
