The Waco Police Department said an aggravated robbery suspect was shot by an employee at a smoke shop during his criminal act.

On July 29 at around 11:15 p.m., a male was robbing the Tee's Smoke Shop located in 3528 N. 19th St.

The suspect entered the store wearing a ski mask, showed a handgun and demanded money. 

The store employee took defensive action by drawing his own gun and fired at the suspect.

The suspect was struck several times and ran away from the scene.

The suspect was later taken to Baylor Scott and White Hillcrest where he was dropped off by someone in a car.

No one else was injured.

This incident remains under investigation.
