MN: Armed Store Owner Fatally Shoots Armed Robbery Suspect

A Maplewood liquor store worker foiled an armed robbery, fatally shooting one of the two masked suspects, authorities said Tuesday.

The shooting occurred about 6:45 p.m. Monday at Princess Liquors on Stillwater Road near Century Avenue, according to police.

Willie Young-Ferba, 23, who “very recently” moved to Maplewood from Chicago, was identified by police Tuesday as the dead suspect. Young-Ferba’s criminal history in the Chicago area includes a theft offense in 2015.

A second store worker was assaulted before the gunfire erupted, and she was taken to Woodwinds Hospital in Woodbury for treatment of noncritical injuries, said Police Cmdr. Dave Kvam.
