CINCINNATI -- A gas station owner shot a suspect Friday night in East Price Hill, Cincinnati police said.

Officers got a report of a robbery at the Marathon station at Warsaw Avenue and Del Monte Place at 7:45 p.m., Lt. Craig Gregoire said.

At some point, the owner shot at the armed suspect, Gregoire said. A bullet grazed the man in the stomach, and he flagged down an officer about a block and a half away, on Del Monte, Gregoire said. He added that officers recovered a gun from the suspect.

The station owner wasn't harmed.

Gregoire said officers were reviewing surveillance footage from the Marathon station.

Neither man's name was immediately released.
