(Scroll down for video) An angry girl shot a couple after they allowed her to walk free from their store despite shoplifting without pressing charges.
Police in Missouri, were called after a 13-year-old girl returned to the store and seriously injured the couple of O’Fallon.
The victims, a man and a woman who are in their 70’s, worked at their daughter’s beauty shop when the teenager came in and shot them in the torso for being kicked out earlier in the day, Detective Lt. Shawn Applegate said.
Police said that the suspect and her friend, came into Kings Beauty shop and they stole some hair extensions.
Police were called and they spoke with the young suspects, and they recovered the stolen goods.
The elderly couple did want to press charges against the 13-year-old girl and she was let off with a warning not to return to the store.
Her accomplice was arrested as there was an outstanding warrant for her arrest over an unrelated incident.
However, the 13-year-old girl later returned to the store with a gun and shot the couple. She managed to flee from the scene before police arrived.
Police released a photo of the child suspect.
Bellefontaine Neighbors Police Chief Jeremy Ihler said that the girl was brought to the St. Louis County Police Department’s North County precinct by a family member and she turned herself in.
