An employee at The Tool House in Shreveport, La., ended an
alleged serial robber's crime spree when he shot the man as he
attempted to rob the store. The suspect, identified by police as
Diandre Lias, entered the store wearing a blue bandanna over the
lower part of his face. The robber cocked his .38-cal. revolver and
aimed it at three employees and one customer. One of the employees
responded by pulling out his own .357-cal. revolver. Both men fired
one shot. The robber, who was struck in the chest, died an hour
later, according to Shreveport Police Detective Russell Ross.
