OKLAHOMA CITY --  A 32-year-old Oklahoma City mall security guard who opened fire on a couple of shoplifters in October has been charged.

Kiddoo told Oklahoma City Police one suspect tried to run him down so he fired two shots at the car as it drove off.

But a police investigation found Kiddoo fired at the car after it was no longer a threat. He also did not have an armed security guard license.

Kiddoo is a police officer for the VA Medical Center in Oklahoma City and worked part time at Dillard's as a security officer.
