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.
