According to statements from the Covington Police Department (CPD), the manager and a coworker were exiting the store to make the night deposit at the bank when a black male approached the two and held a gun to the manager's head, demanding money. The manager then dropped his wallet and keys but the suspect seemed to know there was a money bag and demanded more.
After the manager dropped his money bag on the ground, the suspect told the manager to step into the manager's truck. At that time, the manager pulled a gun from his glove box and shot at the suspect. The suspect returned fire, according to CPD Captain Ken Malcom.
It is believed that the suspect may have been struck by the round. The manager and the other employee were not hurt.

According to Covington Police, the manager of the store and a co-worker were leaving to deposit money at the bank when they were approached by an armed man. The man took the money bag from the store, the manager's wallet and car keys and then ordered them into the manager's vehicle.

While inside the vehicle, the manager grabbed a gun from the glove box and shot at the suspect. The suspect shot back before fleeing the scene. He is only described as a black male.

This is my Ingles, I OC every time I go in. Not an especially dangerous area at all, but it is on the edge of Covington, with a pretty quick exit towards I-20. I hope the manager begins carrying on his person from now own. This could have ended badly.

I spoke to the assistant manager (she has a GWCL) today and encouraged them carry a weapon discreetly when making deposits. She said they would be fired if they did that; I encouraged them to do it anyway.

Either I carry or you get regular armored pickups. Pick.

Right where I used to live.

I've been to that Ingles before and shopped.

This. The cash control options are there. There is no need for managers to make deposits at the bank's night drop anymore unless the establishment is cheap beyond all logical reason. And if so, THIS is why they got robbed. Someone inside knew it was easy picking. Except in this case, not as easy as thought, but in other cases, easier than taking candy from a baby.

When I was an assistant store manager with Syms, I had to carry cash deposits to the local bank down the road. And of course, I wasn't allowed to carry a firearm. Kind of nerve wracking. At least we made the deposits in the middle of the day, not late at night.

While still in college my manager would unwisely tell the armed Brink's guy to leave us sometimes when filling up an ATM in a gas station with a line of people at the register.

Unarmed, 200,000 blue shrink wrapped bricks of cash in my arms. You should see the looks we got from those in line. Very awkward. I asked her not to do that again.

Obviously, I was handing over whatever they wanted if a gun came out lol
