IL: Convenience Store Employee Shoots, Wounds 2 Armed Robbery Suspects

An employee held at gunpoint during an armed robbery attempt in Round Lake Beach shot two suspects before they fled the scene in a waiting vehicle, prompting a search for the driver and a passenger who managed to escape from police, authorities said.

The shooting happened around 10:45 p.m. Monday in the 1000 block of Fairfield Road, according to the Round Lake Beach Police Department.

There, authorities say a man and a woman ordered employees of a business behind the counter and held them at gunpoint.

"At one point during the incident, one of the employees was able to access a firearm and shot several rounds at the suspects, striking both suspects," police said in a release.

The man and woman fled the store and got into a waiting vehicle, which then drove down a dead-end street. The driver and a front passenger ran away, leaving the injured pair behind, police said.
