Justin Brewer, 27, was released from the hospital and booked into the Metropolitan Detention Center on Monday on one count of armed robbery with a deadly weapon.
According to a criminal complaint filed in Metropolitan Court, Brewer had just held up the store and was fleeing through the parking lot when the employee, still wearing his apron, came outside and shot him. Brewer was taken from the scene by an unidentified man and dropped off outside a Motel 6 near the Big I soon after.
The employee is not identified in the complaint, nor does it mention where he got the gun or if he is still employed at the pizza place. Little Caesars would not comment on this story.
