The Henderson Drug Store in downtown Franklin was robbed at gunpoint this morning. According to Franklin Chief of Police Tim O’Sullivan, at approximately 10:30 this morning, two suspects entered the Henderson Drug Store, drew their weapons, and demanded an undisclosed amount of prescription medication. The two suspects are described as one being a white male, wearing blue jeans and a black hoodie with white lettering. The other suspect is a black male, medium build, wearing blue jeans, a grey shirt, wearing a stocking cap with dreads.
The suspects fled north while being pursued by an employee of Henderson Drug who fired three rounds from his own personal hand gun in an attempt to stop the suspects.
The two men then jumped into a grey or silver Chevy van, and proceeded North on Water Street.
The Johnson County Sherriff’s Department, the Franklin Police Department, the Indiana State Police, and other local agencies are investigating.
The attempted robbery prompted Schools around Franklin to go on lockdown for two hours.
