Toledo Police have released security camera footage of a South Toledo convenience store shoot-out that took the life of a would-be robber in March.
Alfred Evans, 52, was fatally shot after trying to rob Bengal's Food Mart, 2625 Airport Highway, on Sunday, Mar. 14. The man, disguised with a wig, walked into the store, announced the robbery and produced a handgun, according to Toledo Police Sgt. Tim Noble. A store owner is seen in the footage retrieving his gun and exchanging fire with Evans, hitting and killing him.
Three other customers were also inside the location; however, there were no other injuries.
Evans, also known as Alfred Dickerson, was a known felon with an extensive criminal history, according to police. Toledo Police Captain Ray Carroll says that Evans was convicted in 1980 of shooting two Columbus, Ohio police officers. He served 29 years behind bars for the shootings before being released in 2009.
