MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Memphis Police have released photos of the man they say robbed an armored car guard at a Walmart in Southeast Memphis.

On Monday, officers were called to the store located at 6990 East Shelby Drive around 1 p.m.

Investigators said a lone male approached a Loomis guard while he was exiting the store, placed a gun to his head and demanded the money.

The suspect then fled the scene.

The guard began chasing the suspect through the parking lot and eventually exchanged gunfire with the wanted man.

Thankfully no one was injured, but the suspect did get away in a black Dodge Avenger.

He was last seen heading northbound on Riverdale.

According to authorities, the suspect may also be responsible for the attempted armored car robbery at the Wells Fargo on Hacks Cross back on June 13.

During that attempted robbery,  the suspect tried to rob an armored car truck parked in front of the bank.

The suspected robber didn’t get any cash and didn’t hurt anyone.

If you can help authorities identify him, you are urged to call CrimeStoppers at (901) 528-CASH.
