INDIANAPOLIS — Police say an Indianapolis liquor store employee has killed an armed robber in the city's second shooting death in two weeks of armed gunmen at businesses.

Police say a robber armed with a gun was holding up a 21st Amendment Liquor Store on South Keystone Avenue early Sunday when an employee armed with a handgun shot the robber, who died at the scene.

Police did not identify the robber or the employee who shot him.

Police say prosecutors will determine whether to charge the employee.

An Indianapolis gun store employee on Sept. 17 shot and killed a customer who had shot him. Prosecutors ruled the gun store employee acted in self-defense under Indiana law and did not filed criminal charges against him.
