(INDIANAPOLIS) - The security guard who was held at gun point during an attempted robbery at a Kroger is suing the grocery store chain and a former store manager.

Christine Nelson said she's suffered extreme mental anguish and emotional distress from witnessing the killing of Jeremy Atkinson.

The shooting happened the day after Christmas, last year at the 71st Street and Georgetown Road store.

Elijah "Levi" Elliot used his own gun to shoot the would-be robber. The Marion County Prosecutor said the manager acted in self-defense when Atkinson ran toward him.

Kroger has also been sued for wrongful death by Atkinson's mother.

The company has a policy against employees bringing guns onto store property. Elliot resigned from the store about a month after the shooting.
