Florida Convenience Store Clerk Stops Armed Robber

posted on November 29, 2016

When a man walked into the Prime Stop Food Store in Orange Park, Fla., around midnight Friday night wearing sunglasses, it aroused enough suspicion from the clerk to allow him to get the drop on the would-be armed robber.

Because when the sunglasses-wearing man produced a handgun and approached the counter of the convenience store, the clerk—a Right-to-Carry permit holder—drew his own gun and shot the man, who was later pronounced dead at the scene.

The family of the attempted robber, 29-year-old William Smith, told WJAX-TV that Smith struggled with addiction. “In all honesty, if he didn’t die this way ... He would have ended up killing himself on drugs,” said his sister Lisa Marie.
