LA:Robber Shot, Victim Wounded

The store's owner, who was closing up, heard the commotion, looked around the corner, and saw what was happening. As McClure allegedly turned to approach him, the worker grabbed his gun. A struggle ensued, and the worker was shot in the arms, authorities said.

The store's owner then armed himself with a semi-automatic handgun and fired at the suspect, who dropped his shotgun and ran out the backdoor of the shop, authorities said.

Investigators responding to the scene found the shop worker, who was brought to West Jefferson Medical Center, treated and later released.

Soon after, the sheriff's office received a report about a shooting near the intersection of Ehret Road and Champagne Street, which is behind the shop. There, deputies found McClure, who had been shot several times. He was brought to LSU Interim Public Hospital, where he was being treated for possible life-threatening injuries, the sheriff's office said.
