MO: Armed Samaritan Stopped Armed Robbery at Quick Stop Near St. Louis

"Police Officers arrived to discover the suspect had been shot by a citizen during the armed robbery. The suspect was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced deceased," St. Charles police said in a Facebook post.

Police said the citizen in question, a 26-year-old man from St. Louis, told them he stopped at the gas station to use the bathroom and purchase an item in the store. The man told cops that after he left to return to his car he saw a black SUV pull up in front of the store, with the suspect exiting and going into the store while holding a backpack. The man said he then observed the suspect drag a female employee to the front counter while holding a knife to her throat.
