SANTA ANA, Calif. — Police in Southern California say an alleged robber at a fast food restaurant was shot by a customer in the drive-thru lane who fired through a window before speeding off.

Santa Ana Police Commander Michael Claborn says the robbery suspect was hospitalized late Saturday with multiple gunshot wounds, but is expected to survive.

Claborn says the customer witnessing the holdup fired several times at the robber, shattering the drive-thru window of Cozy Corner Drive-In.

Investigators say the armed customer is now wanted on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon. Claborn calls the shooter's actions "very dangerous."

The Orange County Register reported Sunday that the wounded man could face a robbery charge. He was not identified.

If it was justified, as it sounds, then you're saying he's wanted for assault? If he stuck around he'd be a "hero" for stopping a robbery, but he flees and he's wanted? If it was justified to begin with it's not unjustified because he fled.

More negative verbiage put on the hero for stopping the robbery, than the robbery suspect.
