7-11 Shooting

The shooting took place outside this 7-Eleven in the 1800 block of South Pleasant Valley Road.

WINCHESTER — A convenience store clerk turned the tide on her alleged armed abductor Wednesday night and sent him to the hospital with multiple gunshot wounds.

According to a Winchester Police Department news release, Kahlil Alexander Kirton, 33, of Winchester, entered the 7-Eleven at 1851 S. Pleasant Valley Road around 11:35 p.m. Police say he was wearing a mask, displayed a weapon and demanded money.

The clerk gave the man an undisclosed amount of money.

Kirton then allegedly forced the female outside of the store at gunpoint. But the clerk had her own weapon and was able to retrieve it. She fired at Kirton and hit him with multiple shots.

Kirton was taken to Winchester Medical Center and underwent surgery. His condition is unknown.

The clerk was not treated for any injuries.

Police charged Kirton with armed robbery, abduction, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, and wearing a mask in public.

Glad she was able to defend herself! Just hope she is able to keep her job. Remember that you are responsible for your self-defense and that when seconds count, the police are minutes away.


The only reason she stopped shooting was because she ran out of ammo. Should have let him bleed to death. That guy is worthless scum and doesn't deserve to live.
