The shooting prompted a temporary lockdown of Marina High School, which is across the street from the convenience store.
Cell phone video of the shooting was posted on Twitter, showing the officer struggling with the suspect, then firing five shots at him. The suspect stumbles, collapses against a wall of the convenience store, then crumples to the ground.
