Police responding to an armed robbery at a U-Haul self-storage facility Monday opened fire on a man suspected of robbing several businesses in Fort Worth, Texas.

When police arrived at the self-storage facility, an officer spotted a green Ford Ranger truck that matched the description of the getaway vehicle used in more than a dozen robberies. The officer fired one bullet into the truck, hitting the man in the upper torso. The suspect continued to drive the truck, then pulled over and surrendered a few blocks away. The man is in critical but stable condition at a local hospital.

The police investigation revealed a man walked into the U-Haul self-storage facility and asked about storage, then showed the manager a gun and said he was there to rob the facility, said Ken Birch, U-Haul marketing director. Police are now looking at the surveillance video from the facility, which has 18 security cameras on site.
