Share post:

South Bend, Indiana – In a dramatic turn of events at a South Bend gas station, a customer thwarted an alleged armed robbery, resulting in the death of the suspect. 

According to police reports it took place December 21, around 12:50 a.m., when South Bend Police responded to a reported robbery at the Phillips 66 Station on Western Avenue. When they arrived they discovered 24-year-old Glen Brooks with gunshot wounds, who was pronounced dead at the scene. Witnesses revealed that Brooks allegedly attempted to rob the station at gunpoint, leading to a struggle with the clerk. A nearby bystander, legally armed, intervened and shot Brooks during the confrontation. Surveillance footage would reportedly later confirm witness accounts. 

The St. Joseph County Prosecutor’s Office, after reviewing the case, declared the shooting a justifiable homicide, opting not to file criminal charges.
