Tyerre Allen’s life of crime was ended permanently today, thanks to a good guy with a gun:
It happened around 2:15 p.m. at Cash America Pawn at 2428 E. 38th St.
Police say a person came into the business and showed a weapon. Multiple shots were fired. It is unclear if the suspect fired shots or just brandished his weapon.
When officers arrived, they found the suspect shot multiple times at the entrance of the business. He was pronounced dead by EMS crews on the scene.
Police identified the suspect Tuesday night as Tyerre Allen, 25, of Indianapolis. Allen was recently released from Indiana Department of Corrections for a robbery that occurred several years ago.
The hero was identified as a customer who opened fire when Allen pulled a gun and attempted to rob the establishment. The customer was effective with his fire, and Allen was pronounced DRT (dead right there) by responding EMS units. Allen was brandishing a weapon when he attempted his robbery, but it is unclear at this time if he fired any shots.
Indianapolis Police said that Allen is the most likely suspect in a string of recent robberies in the metropolitan area.
His crime spree has come to a permanent end.
