TAMPA, FLORIDA — In an armed robbery gone wrong for the robbers and right for the store clerk, one of the robbers wound up dead while his partner took off in hopes that the body count wouldn’t change to two.
It happened late Sunday night at Cut Rate Liquor Store in Tampa when two men armed with a gun walked into the store. Shortly after entering, they found themselves exchanging gunfire with an armed clerk who did not want to be a victim of their violent crime.
That clerk shot and killed one of the robbers, while the other one ran for his life.
Police are still searching for the second suspect.
No one else was injured during the incident.
This story is a clear reminder of how guns save lives, and an even bigger reminder to criminals that many citizens are armed… and they aren’t afraid to defend themselves.
