Indianapolis metro police have identified a gunman shot and killed while trying to rob a liquor store.

Police identified Monday as Donald Crenshaw, 47, of Indianapolis.

An employee of a 21st Amendment Liquor Store on the city's south side had been on the job only three days before he shot and killed Crenshaw early Sunday.

Zach Rogers tells WTHR-TV and WRTV-TV the job is the first he's been able to land since returning in January from his second tour of duty in Iraq.

Rogers says he fired multiple shots after Crenshaw looked away from him. He says he wanted to make sure he and his co-workers would be alive to go home and see their children.

Deputy Marion County Prosecutor Denise Robinsons says Rogers was justified in using deadly force.
