An employee at Euphorium cannabis shop in Covington, Washington, shot and killed an alleged robber Thursday around 7:45 p.m.

The Seattle Times noted that Ryan Evans, operations director for Euphorium, said, “The perpetrator walked the employee up to the store, got in the door and told our ID and security people, ‘This is a robbery,’ My ID checker said, ‘Are you serious?’ and when he was, my ID checker drew his weapon and fired.”

Evans pointed out that his ID checker was shaken by the incident but was not physically harmed.

KING 5 reported that the King County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) described the deceased suspect as “in his late teens to early twenties.”

KING 5 also pointed out that another person was killed on Wednesday after allegedly trying to rob a cannabis store in Bellevue. That individual fled the scene and was located in someone’s backyard, where he was killed in a shootout with police.
