WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Police in Wichita say a 16 year old boy shot to death by a convenience store clerk on Thanksgiving also robbed the business a week earlier.
Authorities identified the boy Monday as Giorgio Rock. Police said he and two others tried to rob KC Gas & Groceries on North Broadway around 7:30 p.m. Thursday.
Investigators said Rock was one of two armed robbers who forced a clerk back inside just after closing time on November 16. They emptied the cash registers and ran off.
In the Thanksgiving holdup, police say Rock and a 19 year old entered the store while another 19 year old waited outside. Officers said Rock crawled under a counter and pointed a realistic looking pellet gun at the clerk, who grabbed a handgun and opened fire.
Both 19 year olds are under arrest.
