A man who attempted to rob an armored car on Sunday afternoon was taken into custody after being shot by a guard and captured by bystanders. Indianapolis police said that the driver of the Brink’s truck was leaving the Wal-Mart in the 7200 block of U.S. 31 when the suspect attacked him with pepper spray. The guard shot the man, who was wearing body armor, in the stomach. The suspect attempted to flee on foot but was chased down by an onlooker and an off-duty police officer.
