QuikTrip Customer Fatally Shoots Man Who Held Knife To Clerk’s Throat


A customer fatally shot a man who “went on a violent crime spree” and had robbed three gas stations.

The incident occurred on Saturday, July 16, close to 3:20 a.m., just outside of St. Louis, Missouri. Authorities say 26-year-old Larry Bush succumbed to his wounds at a medical facility after being shot by a bystander.

A 26-year-old witness told police that he observed the suspect quickly pull into the parking lot as he was leaving out of the QuikTrip gas station. He said that the man had parked his vehicle in front of the store and got out with his backpack and went inside.

The witness said that the suspect walked over to the clerk and dragged her to the front counter as she was yelling. He then saw the suspect with a knife to the woman’s neck.

With his 9mm gun, the witness went back inside and approached the suspect.

“I have something for you,” the suspect stated to the bystander, walking around the counter.

The witness then shot Bush multiple times, and the suspect collapsed to the floor. The clerk at the witness then contacted the authorities.

“I don’t think I honestly had a choice. He already had a knife at her throat. He could have pulled out something bigger than what I had. Then, you would’ve had two people dead instead of one,” stated the customer who wanted to remain anonymous.

Emergency crews transported Bush to a medical facility where he died, police say.

Bush had committed two armed robberies that had occurred within the hour earlier that morning. They also discovered that a black SUV he had been driving had been stolen on Friday.

The customer was questioned and released. He hasn’t been charged.
