Employees foil robbery

Two gunmen trying to rob an East Jacksonville tire shop were scared off by a 16-year-old store employee pointing a shotgun, according to a police report.

The failed holdup at Toliver Tires, 2313 Phoenix Ave., was reported to police about 7:40 p.m. Saturday. Two store employees said they spotted the robbers walking up to the business wearing black masks and carrying handguns.

The robbers pointed their pistols and demanded the shop's money, but one of the employees already had grabbed a shotgun from the shop's office. After a standoff that lasted about 30 seconds, the robbers left empty-handed, the police report said. No arrests have been made.
