KANSAS CITY, Mo. —

An older man suffered critical injuries and later died on Friday afternoon as he tried to stop a suspected thief at his comic book store, Kansas City police said.

The theft happened about 12:40 p.m. the 3900 block of Walnut Street. It was initially reported as a carjacking, but police at the scene said that was not the case.

Police Capt. Stacey Graves said the older man ran out of the store to confront the man, who had jumped into a white hatchback.

The owner was yelling "hey, he stole from me," witnesses told KMBC 9 News.

Authorities said the older man was hit by the vehicle's door. Witnesses said he fell to the ground and hit his head.

He was taken to an area hospital with life-threatening injuries and died.

No arrests have been made.

Witnesses said the suspect appeared to be bald, in his mid-40s and wearing white basketball shoes and glasses.

The Store was Clints Comics. Apparently he had a few heart attacks after hitting his head.

Very sad. Hope they find the guy.

From Facebook: Here's the car in question

Hopefully there is more video / plates for the car
Looks to be a "Suzuki aerio"

It took 17 minutes on hold with 911

bystanders took him to the fire station because 911 never responded

I am hoping the damn 911 system is spooning themselves working on a better system where someone doesn't bleed to death on hold

Abuse of 911 leads to many such incidents.  Pls folks dont call 911 because you didnt get your chicken nuggets or your kid is acting up.

Sad to know that he died from that like this. I hope the scumbags got arrested and throw in jail for life. The store owner is someone I can relate with like the local comic book store I frequented to get my new comics. I am surprised that his store had its 50th anniversary, that shows how good his store is.

I briefly met him at Planet Comic Con....Clint's Comics had a nice set up there.  Seemed like a great guy....I hope they catch the perpetrator and they prosecute to the full extent of the law

A Life lost and another one probably ruined over $20 worth of anything is tragic. My thoughts and prayers to the shop owner and his family.
