Clerk shoots teenager for allegedly trying to steal cookies
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ A Kansas City store clerk has been charged after a teenager was shot while he allegedly was shoplifting some cookies.
Jackson County prosecutors say 26-year-old Mohammed Abdi was charged Wednesday with armed criminal action. Police say he shot a 16-year-old in the leg Tuesday at a Pic N Save store as the teen was walking out the door.
Witnesses told police Abdi shot the teenager, who was found injured on a sidewalk outside the store.
The Kansas City Star reports video surveillance shows the boy walking toward the exit as Abdi pulls a gun from his waistband and fires a shot.
Online court records do not indicate that Abdi has an attorney.
