On Wednesday, a Wisconsin Walgreens had been the target of a failed attempted armed robbery and the alleged suspect was seen throwing his gun onto the roof of a store while the police were chasing him.
In Milwaukee on the morning of August 22, a person with their face obscured by a skull cap who was toting a 9mm handgun reportedly attempted to rob a Walgreens pharmacy after noticing that the cash register was left unattended. The suspect was spotted by one of the people working in the store who reported that they saw him near the register and then watched him run out of the building.
A passerby saw the suspect exit the store and trailed him while using a cell phone to capture him on video. When the person that was recording saw a police car driving past he got their attention and showed them the video to try to assist them in locating the suspect who had allegedly attempted the robbery.
