Police: Convenience Store Clerk Shoots Would-Be Robber

A convenience store clerk in Pembroke Pines gunned down a pair of would-be robbers inside his own store.

According to detectives, four men rushed into the store on the 7700 block of Johnson Street Monday night and one of the men pointed a gun at the clerk demanding cash.

That's when authorities said the clerk ducked for cover under the counter, and unleashed a hail of bullets.

Officers were able to arrest one of the men who was struck in the leg by the clerk's bullet. He is expected to make a full recovery.

Witnesses said the other men were able to get away in what appeared to be a black 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix.

Anyone with information is asked to call Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
