ST. LOUIS (KMOV) -- A man was shot inside the Schnucks near Union and Natural Bridge in north St. Louis Thursday, police said.

The St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department said a man was causing issues inside the store and was asked to leave by a security guard. The man refused to leave and began berating and threatening the guard.

Police said the man then went outside the store but tried to re-enter. The security guard feared for his safety and the safety of others, so she shot the man in the arm. The man ran but was found at the intersection of Wabada and Semple.

The victim was taken to a hospital.
