Bullet grazes Family Dollar clerk during armed robbery


INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A bullet grazed a Family Dollar clerk during an armed robbery Tuesday night on the city’s east side, police said.

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department was sent about 8:10 p.m. Tuesday to the robbery of a business in progress at the Family Dollar, 3712 E. 25th St. That’s just off North Sherman Drive north of Interstate 70.

The suspect fled, but police said they did not have a description of the person. The police would not say whether the robber took anything.

The door to the store was locked about 10 p.m., which is when the discount retailer’s store generally closes.

It was unknown whether customers were in the store when the robbery happened.

Family Dollar authorities at the scene declined to comment.
