CCPD: Employee fires gun at alleged shoplifter

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI -

Police responded to a shopping center in Corpus Christi after reports that a retail store employee fired a gun at two alleged shoplifters.

The incident happened at the Bel Aire shopping center in the 2700 block of South Staples St. near Annapolis Dr. around midday on Saturday.

Corpus Christi Police Department officials said that when officers arrived they were told by store employees that a newly hired coworker had confronted a couple suspected of shoplifting.

Officers tracked down the employee who reportedly admitted to firing two shots but was unaware of whether he'd hit anything. They issued a citation for firing a weapon within city limits.

However, investigators said that a suspected victim with a gunshot wound walked into a local hospital several hours after the shooting. Further information was not available at time of writing.

This is a developing story, we will provide updates as soon as possible.
