Store Clerk Not Facing Charges After Shooting At Multiple People During Circle K Confrontation


PENSACOLA BEACH, FLORIDA — A Circle K clerk in Escambia County who wielded a gun during a confrontation won’t face charges, according to local sheriff’s office statements. The incident occurred on Pensacola Beach when the clerk, feeling threatened by a group’s behavior, decided to follow them outside with a gun.

Surveillance video of the confrontation, which happened just after 1 a.m., shows an escalating argument, resulting in two gunshots and visible fear among customers. However, it remains unclear what provoked the situation.

Monica McGee, a local resident and frequent visitor to the store, defended the clerk’s actions, citing ongoing issues of harassment, particularly from tourists or non-locals. Notably, the men involved chose not to press charges and no injuries were reported.

Sheriff Chip Simmons expressed his reluctance to make the clerk a felon under the circumstances.
