Police: hotel guard shoots and kills robber

A security guard chased down an armed robber and killed him early Friday outside a hotel in College Park.

The shooting happened around 2:30 a.m. on a property adjacent to the Quality Inn Suites on Old National Highway, according to the College Park Police Department.

Kadeesh Comer, 21, had just robbed a clerk at the hotel, and a security guard chased him outside the hotel, police said.

Comer shot at the guard with a 0.22-cal revolver, and the guard returned fire, killing him, police said. No charges were filed against the guard.

Hotel owner Ramesh Bhagat told Channel 2 Action News that the clerk handed over $150, but that it wasn't enough for the robber.

"He asked for more money, but we said ‘We don't have more money,' because we do all business by credit card," Bhagat told the news station.

The security guard noticed the commotion and intervened.
