FL: Store ownner's gun Fails him, Robber Steals Gun
OCALA – Mahendrakumar G. “Mike” Patel intended to shoot an armed robber who entered his store on Thursday night.
But Patel’s gun never fired, and he believes there probably wasn’t a round in the chamber.
“Absolutely, I would’ve shot him,” said Patel, standing in his Chevron store at 11990 SE County Road 484 Friday morning. The store owner had good reason to be armed, as his store had been held up last Friday. Belleview Police Department officials believe it may have been the same robber.
