Authorities say Moman and another individual stole cash in July 2017 from a Metro PCS store in Minneapolis. 

In the August 2017 robbery, a store employee reportedly told officers he had a permit to carry and had shot one of the two robbery suspects in self-defense.

The clerk reported they had gone to the back room of the store to get a phone requested by the suspects.

Upon exiting, one of the suspects reportedly pointed a gun at his head. He believed Mays was going to shoot him, so he said he drew his own gun and fired several shots.
