Armed Robber Holding Pharmacist at Gunpoint Shot by Pharmacy Employee


OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLAHOMA — Shortly after 4:20 pm on September 16th, an armed man entered the Sooner Pharmacy in the 1800 block of West Lindsey Street. While attempting to rob the business, he was shot by an employee who was also armed.

Gene Alexander, the pharmacy owner, was in the store at the time but did not directly witness the incident. He provided the following statement to local media.

“I was where we keep the over-the-cabinet medicine, but what I’ve been told is a gentleman came in and hopped the counter of the pharmacy and put a gun to our pharmacist’s heat and told everyone to get on the ground and to call the other employees back there. We have a guy who’s a tech back in our compound where we make customized medicine and he’s a former police officer and he does have a license to carry, and there was a gunshot and I’m going to leave it at that. Our employees are really shaken up mentally. Our employees are physically safe though.”

The suspect was identified as 31-year-old Ezekiel Jackson, who suffered a single gunshot wound and was transported to a local hospital. He was charged with attempted robbery with a firearm and possession of a firearm after delinquent adjudication.
