Man shot following Burger King armed robbery out of hospital

GREENDALE, IN (FOX19) -

The man accused of using a knife to commit an armed robbery at the Greendale Burger King is out of the hospital and behind bars. Hamilton County Detention Center bookings show Richard McCracken was booked into jail Sunday night.

McCracken is awaiting an extradition hearing before being taken back to Dearborn County where investigators plan to formally charge him with at least one felony count related to the July 2 crime.

Indiana State Police are still investigating what happened following the robbery when an Greendale officer shot McCracken after police said he ran from the scene.

Police were initially called to the Burger King on Lorely Lane, at 11 p.m., on reports of an armed robbery, according to ISP Sgt. Stephen Wheeles. Workers told police McCracken ran into the woods near the restaurant.

Investigators said McCracken approached two people in the parking lot of the Burger King and pulled out a large
knife. He then forced them to the door of the restaurant where another employee was forced to open the locked door, allowing him to enter, police said.

While inside the restaurant, police said McCracken forced employees to open a safe, where he stole an undetermined
amount of money and took off.

Officials said Officer Joseph Vance found McCracken in the wood where the workers told police he ran after the robbery. McCracken, who still had the large knife, moved toward Officer Vance with the knife raised, investigators said. 

The officer shot twice, hitting McCracken with both shots, reports stated. 

Police said Vance, along with other officers, performed lifesaving procedures on McCracken before he was flown to the University of Cincinnati for treatment.  ISP said it appeared McCracken would survive his injuries.  

A warrant was issued for the arrest of McCracken, charging him with robbery resulting in serious bodily injury,three counts of kidnapping, attempted aggravated battery, four counts intimidation with a deadly weapon and one count theft. 

No officers were injured in the incident.
