After a series of late night armed robberies at the Kroger grocery store in recent months, an armed security guard was present overnight when another stickup happened. Police in Normal say the white male suspect pointed a weapon at the guard and the guard shot him, firing several times. The injury to the alleged robber is not life threatening. Officers later determined the suspect's weapon was an air gun. Police Chief Rick Bleichner says the investigation is ongoing and neither the suspect, nor the guard are being identified at this time.
