(KMOV.com) -- Police say a man was shot while trying to steal from an Aldi store near the intersection of Delmar and North Kingshighway on Sunday.

Police say Michael Jackson, 41, was leaving the store with a cart of meat he did not pay for when the security guard confronted him.

A struggle ensued and the security guard attempted to stop Jackson by using pepper spray, but the wind caused the pepper spray to splash back into his face.

The suspect then punched the security guard who then began firing shots.

Jackson was hit once in the ankle. He was taken to a hospital, treated and released.

Jackson was taken into custody and is expected to face felony robbery charges.
