A pizza shop employee shot and killed a man who robbed the business Thursday night, police said.

Lt. Katherine Bryant of the Fayetteville Police Department said the robbery happened about 9:20 p.m. at the Pizza Qwik shop at 6477 Yadkin Road. The shop is in a small plaza near Fillyaw Road, just south of Fort Bragg.

The names of the people involved had not been released as of early this morning.

People at a nearby convenience store, the Exxon Express Stop, said they saw the pizza shop employee chase a man behind the convenience store.

“He ran around the building yelling and yelling,” said Rene Garcia-Hilbish of Fayetteville.

She said she heard two shots and walked around the building to see what had happened.

“The man kept yelling, ‘Get up, get up,’ but it was obvious he was not going to get up,” Garcia- Hilbish said.

Police said the robber was dead when they arrived. A car seen leaving the area may have been used by someone involved in the robbery, police said.

Bryant said the man who robbed the pizza shop was armed, but she would not identify the type of weapon he was carrying. She would not say what kind of gun the pizza shop employee used.

In January, the manager of Spinners Pizza on Hope Mills Road shot one of two masked men who tried to rob the business. One of the men had what turned out to be a BB gun.

In November 1999, a manager of Dino’s Pizza in Sycamore Square off Bragg Boulevard shot one of two men who tried to rob that store at closing time.
