Suspect wounded in shoot-out with police officer in Glendora grocery store

GLENDORA — Police wounded and arrested a suspected robber during a shoot-out inside a crowded grocery store late Saturday, authorities said.
The suspect, whose name was not released, was hospitalized in critical condition, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Sgt. Harry Drucker said in a written statement. No officers or bystanders were wounded in the exchange of gunfire.
An officer spotted a man suspected in a department store robbery earlier in the day about 10 p.m. near a Ralph’s grocery store, 655 S. Grand Ave., Drucker said.
“The suspect pulled out a handgun and ran into the Ralph’s grocery, the sergeant said. “The officer pursued the suspect into the location and when the suspect fired his handgun at the officer, he was forced to return fire.”
The wounded suspect, initially described only as a white man in his mid-30s, was struck once in the upper body hospitalized in critical condition.
“The Ralph’s was crowded,” sheriff’s Lt. John Corina said. “It was full of people shopping at the time, and the suspect was firing from behind the checkstands at the officer as he entered the store.”
The robbery the wounded suspect was suspected of took place just after 4 p.m. at Kohl’s department store, 1225 S. Lone Hill Ave., Glendora police Lt. Rob Lamborghini said.
Police said the robber brandished a handgun as he demanded cash from a store employee.
“Using investigative leads and witness information, Glendora officers were able to identify the suspect, the vehicle he was driving and the location where the vehicle was registered,” Lamborghini said.
Officers went to the home where the car was registered Saturday afternoon, he said, but the suspect wasn’t found.
