BEECH GROVE, Ind. — Authorities say two robbery suspects, including a teenage boy, were killed by a security guard outside a suburban Indianapolis bar.
The Indianapolis Star reports (http://indy.st/2iOhq3V) the 14-year-old boy and 29-year-old man were shot early Saturday in Beech Grove. Mayor Dennis Buckley says the pair approached a parked car and demanded money from the occupants, a mother and son providing security for The Grove Bar and Eatery.
Buckley says the teen pointed a gun at the male security guard and said, "Give us everything you've got." The guard said they had only a cellphone, which the teen demanded.
The guard fired several shots at both suspects, both of whom collapsed.
Police say charges aren't likely because the shooting appeared to be in self-defense. Investigators don't know the relationship between the suspects.
