The fatal robbery scene that left one suspect dead and three Seattle police officers shot started with an armed robbery of a downtown 7-Eleven store.
The robbery was for $28.42 of snacks.
KIRO 7 went to the store and talked to the clerk who was robbed shortly before 1:30 p.m. Thursday. He showed KIRO-7 Reporter Alison Grande exactly what he saw the teens take before pointing a gun at him in the store. See her story, which includes details from the other suspect’s court appearance, on KIRO 7 at 5 p.m.
He said the teens grabbed a 12 pack of Heineken, a bag of Chester's Fries chips, a tube of BBQ Pringles, a box of chocolate donuts and a bottled Starbucks Mocha Frappuccino.
A 17-year-old girl is being held for held for investigation of first-degree robbery and third-degree assault. Her 19-year-old brother, Damarius Butts, died after police said he fired at them and they fired back.
A fourth officer also was hurt after police said a 17-year-old girl hit him over the head with a bottle.
Friday afternoon, police released a photo of his gun and Officer Elizabeth Kennedy’s Kevlar jacket that was hit by a bullet.
