Investigators said one of the armored vehicle’s guards shot the suspect multiple times after the man attempted to rob the armored truck with a can of mace and a screwdriver.
The shooting happened about 3:40 p.m. on Saturday.
After the shots were fired, the armored truck employee and his partner left the scene in a vehicle, travelled a short distance to a more secure area and called 911.
Police found the male suspect with gunshot wounds and he was taken to a local hospital. The armored truck employees were not injured in the incident.
