RANDOLPH (CBS) – An armed robbery suspect died after a police chase ended in a crash in Randolph Wednesday afternoon.

Police say it started when the thief fired a sawed-off shotgun during a robbery at a market on North Main Street at about 3 p.m. The suspect fired the shotgun into the floor of the store and it ricocheted into a glass door. The clerk was the only other person in the store and was not injured. The suspect escaped in a car with an unknown amount of cash.

The clerk says he wasn’t afraid when the 37-year-old man came storming into his story demanding cash. “I no scared,” Baldev Patel said. “I no scared, I experienced too much.”
