ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) – A man was shot at an Aldi store in the 3600 block of Natural Bridge Avenue Saturday evening.

A security guard suspected Keith Harris, 50, of the 5500 block of Sapphire, was shoplifting and when the security guard confronted him, Harris allegedly wielded a firearm and pointed it at the security guard who then tried to move away from the man.

The man continued to follow the security guard which prompted the guard to draw his firearm and fire several shots at the man striking him at least three times. 

Harris was pronounced dead at the scene. Homicide is handling the investigation.
