Around 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, police surrounded Worley at the gas station where his photo was behind the register, according to KMOV-TV. Officers asked Worley to show his hands, at which point he pulled out a weapon. Police then shot Worley in the chest.

A witness at the scene, . Shortly before the shooting, Jones walked into the gas station to buy a pack of cigarettes and was standing in line when the incident happened.
