Grocery Store Owner Scares Off Would-Be Robber

Pierre Phurcien has carried concealed for the past eight years. Recently, that practice came in handy when a would-be thief entered the Lehigh Acres, Fla., grocery store Phurcien owns. “I saw a guy with a mask, and I was thinking it was a kid playing,” Phurcien told media afterward. Pretty soon, he found out it was no game. “He came right here, and he pulled a gun and said, ‘Give me the money,’” Phurcien said. “Then I pulled my gun, and … he starts to run away.” Lee County deputies were still looking for the suspect.
